#FireMeUp11 Truth: You Are In Competition With No One

For those of you who prefer LISTENING over reading… here you go:

Battling or embracing your self-doubt and focusing on “the competition” are some of the top ways we keep ourselves from achieving GREATNESS.

If you are waging war against yourself… STOP.

Remember, there is NO ONE like you.

You are in competition with no one.

Focus on your passions, your purpose, your UNIQUENESS.

Bring THOSE to the table today.

Spread your sparkle…

Sprinkle your glitter…

Get out there and SHINE.


Here are FIVE “Mindset Shift Tips/Tricks” I do when fighting these battles:

  1. Call a friend. The REAL one who doesn’t whisper fluffy kitten talk in my ear, but gives it to me STRAIGHT, kicks me in the toosh when I need it, and reminds me of my uniqueness.
  2. Take a walk with my dog, Niko. He really is a genius sidekick and has solved many of my problems over the years.
  3. Indulge in a bubble bath – in the middle of the day. Yep. INDULGE. Don’t judge. Try it. It works.
  4. Crank the music up and have a personal dance party. Pity parties are just plain lame.
  5. Kick into a Stretch * Meditate * Prayer Session… I find that when I slow down, stretch, and get back to my true center – I return with a CHAMPION attitude.

What do YOU do to renew and refocus your mind when those irritating self-doubt thoughts start whispering in your ear?

Please share it in the comments below… and let’s knock self-doubt OUT – together!

    I am getting used to talking to friends about things and STOP keeping it all to myself. I have also started a one minute meditation thing ;) It’s like taking a one minute nap, focusing on my breathing , it’s very refreshing.
    I find it very difficult to not compare myself to others but I am doing my best to stop that madness. The other thing is that I set HIGH standards for myself and then when I don’t accomplish what want, it’s frustrating but next time I set a more achievable goal, it definitely feels better and I am aware that I did my very BEST!
    Thank you Deborah, you posts are always very inspiring and timely! HUGS!

      It is my pleasure, Karina! You are not alone… We all battle these thoughts and the “madness” of it all. That is why having a tribe (of inspiring, positive people) to surround and encourage us is so important! Happy Friday, my dear. :)

    The competitor to be feared is one who never bothers about you at all, but goes on making his own business better all the time.

    Great post and timeless wisdom. Wallace Wattles said essentially the same thing in 1910, in the book The Science of Getting Rich, urging readers to get out of the competitive plane and focus on the creative, on being unique.
