It’s easy to get distracted by your competition.
Especially on the internet, where you can watch and see exactly what they are accomplishing.
Don’t do it.
There is business for everyone.
When you start paying attention to the other person’s business instead of your own, that will be the beginning of the downfall of yours.
The simple answer is focus. You lose your focus. And, if you are not focused on your business, how can it thrive?
Now, I’m not saying you don’t need to be aware of your competition. I’m just saying, don’t be obsessed with them. You are unique, your business is unique. Concentrate on that. Get your message out in your own way, with your own style, in your own voice. Your customer base will appreciate it.
Blinders? Think race horses. They have blinders on for one reason. To help them stay totally focused on where they are going and not pay any attention to the horses running with them. It works for them and it’ll work for you too.
Blinders will shield you from distractions so you can concentrate on the task at hand. . . building your business!
Go ahead. Put them on. See if you don’t move in the right direction, in your own way, at your own speed, in your own time. It’s all good
