Do you ever feel like it’s a waste of time to do what you want to do with your work because someone out there is already doing it? And you think they are doing it better?
Please don’t let this stop you from listening to your unique calling and sharing your gifts.
Here are my thoughts on competition:
“Competition” is healthy.
It’s important that we have many options and different providers of the type of work that you do. It expands us, and evolves the things we do. Think about sports, for example. New generations of athletes are breaking world records that their predecessors set. Once someone does the “impossible” it becomes possible and more and more people open their minds to doing whatever that next goal is.
Competition evolves us.
Did I just said competition is healthy? The truth is that yes, it’s healthy, and truly I don’t actually believe competition exists.
You see, no one can do what you do exactly the way you do it.
Even if you are literally painting the same painting or using the exact same methodology in your healing practice. The way you do it comes through your unique essence. No one can do it like you. There are some individuals out there who are going to need ‘your way’ and resonate with your unique essence.
There are almost 8 billion people on the planet.
You are likely immersed in your own bubble (we all are) and you see and know other people who are like minded and may do similar work.
But as a practitioner of the healing arts, you are actually a tiny fraction of the population and your gifts are NEEDED at this time.
Humanity is going through intensity, death, climate crisis, personal crisis’ and so much more – not to mention all at once.
The potential for awakening, for healing, for new and more collaborative ways of being are incredibly high right now.
We need leaders to guide the way.
If not you, then who?
Let go of the story that you’re not good enough and make the shift to find your willingness to answer the calling and show up for the fulfilling and incredible work that is uniquely yours to do in this world. You’ve got this.
