Today I want to talk about three ways to Opt-Out of Competition. Historically, for black women, competition comes out of a society-driven scarcity mindset. When we open our horizons to fully believe in abundance, it is possible to release the form of scarcity that can result in becoming a prisoner to jealousy-centered competitive ideation. Let’s be clear, jealousy is a very common emotion. When we feel threatened by someone who may seem to be doing better than us, feeling jealous is normal. The goal is to transform those feelings into empowering thoughts and actions. Competition has been known to bring out the best in people. However, when rooted in scarcity and fear, it can bring out the worst in us. The good news is that you have the power to choose your reality. Are you ready to release unhealthy competitive energy from your life experience? Let’s talk about it.
