Instagram. Facebook. Twitter. What are they doing, saying, posting?
Another PR? Damn it. Look who they’re hanging out with? Are you kidding me? They’re THAT big now? What the hell am I doing wrong?
It’s the same monologue we play over, and over, and over again with ourselves. We see what our competition is doing online and we panic. We allow negative thoughts to creep in, we become frustrated at our journey’s “apparently” slower pace, and the limited supply of energy we had for today is gone. It is completely drained worrying about things out of our control, people on different journeys, and situations we could never impact. Because their journey is not ours – and our real competition is not them.
