Compete against yourself to unlock your inner genius and success - Jeffrey Feldberg
Compete against yourself to unlock your inner genius, creativity, and success.Successful entrepreneurs are successful from solving a painful problem they're passionate to solve.Read and prosper from "Make More Money Now By Solving Massive Problems."To solve painful problems that you're passionate to solve requires your creativity.

You and your company become mediocre at best or awful at worst.The world neither needs nor tolerates another "me too."Your competitors are successful because their companies are a reflection of their personality.Comparing yourself to others robs you of your unique abilities, gifts, and personality. All day. Every day.My EdTech's success started the day I decided to compete against myself.Every day I challenged myself to do better than the day before.How did you do this?Talk to your customers and ask questions, lots of questions.My company and future forever changed after a customer answered one specific question.Read and prosper from, "5 Business Questions That Will Make You Successful (And Happy)."Free yourself from the shackles of mediocrity when you compete against yourself.

Comparing yourself to others is an act of violence against your authentic self. - Iyanla Vanzant
Do you know the one thing that both a pauper and prince have in common?1,440 minutes a day.When you compare yourself to others, you rob yourself of precious time. And while you're at it, you zap yourself of your energy, enthusiasm, and happiness.By comparing yourself to others, you focus on things you have no control over. Your competitors know why they do what they do.By the time you find out what your competitors are doing, it's already too late. And even if you did know what your competitors are planning, you have no control over the process or outcome.Comparing yourself to others takes time. Time, not money, is your most precious resource.Read and prosper from "Stop Wasting Time and Skyrocket Your Success."When you compete against yourself, you have control over your time, focus, and actions.While you're at it, competing against yourself has you happier. And when you're happier you're more productive.When you decide to compete against yourself, you create a positive loop. The happier you are, the more productive you become. The more productive you become, the happier you are.Stop playing the fool's game of comparing yourself to others.Instead, start winning (today) and compete against yourself.
