Create, Don’t Compete, episode #35

The idea of competition is engraved in our minds. We believe that we have to compete for the same jobs as others. If someone has a job, that means you can’t have the same job. And if a company has a certain market share, that means you have to compete with that company to “win” a piece of their share. What if instead of competing, we focused on creating. On this episode, Dustin and I share a few well-known examples of people who created instead of competing, and how the world was changed as a result! Here’s What You’ll Learn [1:30] Create, don’t compete [3:45] You can put your unique spin on the subject [5:00] The action superstar [7:00] The second smartphone [9:30] The abundance mindset [18:45] Everyone should have blinders on [20:45] Supporting others requires a change in mindset [22:30] Allow your brain to rest [26:15] Toujours Worth Software - Guided Wealth Portfolios [27:15] Worth It Inspiration The action superstar Before he became famous, Arnold Schwarzenegger auditioned for several roles and was told by many that he had no future as an actor. His body was considered strange, and his accent was hard to understand, and his name was too long, so he was passed up. Not settling for that answer, he eventually went on to create a brand new genre of actors, one he called action superstars. After Conan The Barbarian, Arnold was in high demand! The trick to his success? He created when everyone else was competing. This creativity gave him an edge and made him stand out. The second smartphone In 2002, the world was introduced to the Blackberry smartphone. It could text, call, open an email, send faxes and browse the internet, all at the same time! Sales skyrocketed! From business execs to solopreneurs, everyone was using the Blackberry! So why did Steve Jobs think he could compete? He didn’t. Instead, he gathered together nearly 1000 people for “Project Purple,” and then in 2007, launched the first iPhone. The rest is history. Imagine if he had adopted the scarcity mindset, looked at the Blackberry and decided that he couldn’t compete in that space. What are you working on right now that looks like the Blackberry vs. iPhone story? Truth be told, the world needs your creative ideas, your spin on that idea or product or service! Create, don’t compete There’s enough opportunity for everyone in the world. The problem is that most people don’t use the opportunities. If you want to have a specific career, go out there and create it. The same is true for your business. And don’t focus on limited resources, naysayers, or any other reason you should not do it. If Arnold Schwarzenegger listened to the people who said he would never be an actor, a whole genre of movies would not exist. If Steve Jobs had decided that the Blackberry had no equal, the iPhone would have never been created. What company or idea are you working on that may have a similar story? Supporting others requires to you adopt an abundance mentality If you are trying to be creative and carve out your niche, but you find yourself having a lot of animosity towards others, it may be time to adjust the way you are thinking. If competition seems to win out over creativity, remember to adopt an abundance mindset. There is enough for everyone...enough wealth, enough business, enough creative ideas. When you change your mentality towards abundance, you will start to see it everywhere.
