According to the Wikipedia, a counterfeit is an imitation, usually one that is made with the intent of fraudulently passing it off as genuine…..
Countless opportunities are missed by entrepreneurs thinking they need to be MORE like their competitor, or MORE like someone else to succeed. I ask you to release those thoughts right now. You are already MORE than enough in your own creative self expression.
We have enough counterfeits, who are counterfeiting the counterfeit.
Your authenticity is precious, priceless and timeless. You will reach a higher altitude in life by knowing that there is MORE than enough for everyone to be an individual. Everyone can get a slice of the American pie, if that’s what you desire.
There are plenty of business opportunities for everyone. The Department of Treasury is printing MORE money right now, the wind is still blowing MORE air, the sun is still generating MORE energy, the rain is still watering the harvest so MORE crops can grow. You are still meeting MORE people every day, generating MORE opportunities, and your blood is producing MORE blood cells every day.
The rain is not trying to be the wind, the cat is not trying to be a dog, and a chair is still a chair, even if no one is sitting there. But, a chair is not a house….(I could not resist that line from Luther Vandross song, A House Is Not A Home)
Remember the world works in constant motion. How do you receive and perceive yourself? Are you caught up in someone else’s motion? If things are not working out the way you hoped, you may have to check out who you are showing up as, and how much of YOUR true authenticity is in the mix. Don’t confuse your vision by trying to live someone else’s. You may not be moving with the rest of the world. Why? Because you may be trying to be, do and have something that is not in alignment with YOUR authentic flow. Get back on track.
Learn from others, but add MORE of you in the mix.
