The most extreme form of “competition” is war!
The television NEWS tonight was filled with new terrorism laws, ISIS, hundreds of thousands of refugees flooding into Turkey; plus tragic National and local news with lives lost and pain everywhere.
Wherever there is pain in society you can guarantee that large profits are being made.
I learnt that from one of my mentors many years ago, and it I see it everywhere still today because the vast majority of us are competing at every opportunity … ignorant of the fact that we could ALL be living prosperously and with freedom within ten years once we shift to cooperation.
Look at social media … we are all told “you must be a part of it, learn how to FB, Tweet, Instagram, “hash tag” etc etc etc …
But very few can become “winners” in the competitive world; it absolutely follows the 80:20 rule where 80% of the business / income / profits / traffic and anything else is won by 20% of the players.
And when you understand the 80:20 rule you know that 20% of the 20%, i.e. 4% receive 64% of the business and then, 0.8% or less than 1% of the “competitors” will receive a whopping 51.2% of the rewards.
You are either being competitive (and playing “WIN-LOSE”) or you are being cooperative (playing “WIN-WIN”). You are either being fearful, selfish and cynical or loving, trusting, abundant and excited.
I know which one I prefer, what about you?
If you are competing in business it means you have stopped thinking!
