What happens to a candle’s brightness if you light another candle? That’s right. Nothing. It doesn’t dim or go out because it’s passed on some of it’s energy. In fact, the room is now brighter as a consequence.
So why are we so reluctant to do that with each other; be it in a personal or professional sense? Well, it’s all down to how you view the world. If you view is that thee is scarcity or lack, you will do all you can to protect your ‘asset’ and be fearful of others (loo roll anyone?!)
If however, you see the world as an abundant place, there’s enough for everyone. It’s okay to share someone else’s content online if it will serve your mission, purpose and community.
Who care’s that they are a ‘competitor’? It’s a challenge to think and act like this though…
