2. LIFE IS NOT A COMPETITION: The misunderstanding is that in order to be successful, we have to have a knock out, drag out fight against each other because there is only one “top spot.” However, the reality is your success is not dependent on what someone else does. Focusing on running your own race and not trying to beat each other to the finish line is what places you on the path to success. Remember your success and my success are not mutually exclusive; there is enough happiness for all of us. Ready to work on getting on the road to your success?
