We have been raised to believe that we need to compete with each other in order to move forward. But there is another much more successful way.
Start using your CREATIVE MIND!
When you create, nobody can take things away from you nor do you take something away from others. 'The mind that seeks for mastery over others is the competitive mind, and the competitive mind is not the creative one. In order to master your environment and your destiny, it is not at all necessary that you should rule over your fellow men...' by Wallace D. Wattles 'The Science of Getting Rich'
Go forth, make this day count AND CREATE DON'T COMPETE.
Consciously or not, there are existing lineages of families who have been using a specific success formula.
