As we come into our power and accumulate, some will try to take. This is a good thing. Competition is a natural phenomenon that signals our methods are working. We do not let competition frustrate us and we most certainly do not let it distract us. Time spent worrying about others is time wasted. We embrace competition and use our methods to tip the balance in our favour. Women competing against women is a complete and utter distraction to the fact that we already have so little. We don’t fight over scraps. We stay in our lane and support each other where necessary.
The thing about creating a very cult-like team is that they feel super protective over the business and when they see anyone wade into our domain - whether that’s from a visual aesthetic/industry/ambassadors etc - they get incredibly upset. But negative energy spent on the competition is positive energy not spent thinking about your business. So in simplest terms, I don’t.
That said, I’ve decided to include an essay on competitors because our community is rapidly growing. Now with thousands of members, it’s only natural that there will be women amongst you who are working something similar, if not the exact same thing. So let’s talk about competition. Like I get it. Women have never had enough to go around. I totally understand where this paranoia comes from but all it serves to do is stunt your growth and it’s not going to get you to the next stage. As I’m getting older I feel that I can solidly and without question put people into two categories - scarcity mindset and abundant mindset. It’s only now in my later life, I realise I can’t work with Scarcity people - the ones who don’t want to share resources, who hide their contacts and are eternally paranoid they’re being ripped off. In my 20s it was entertaining. In my 30s it is tiring. And trust me, one day your success will find you on the wrong side of them. So leave those people alone.
