One of my clients once said to me: “Someone else bid on this project. Now that I have competition, I probably won’t get this gig.”
Her comment took my breath away for so many reasons:
- She didn’t have enough confidence in her gifts to believe she’d get this project, no matter who else was bidding on it.
- She believed that competition is bad – just someone who will take business away from her.
- She’s coming from a scarcity mindset, meaning she doesn’t believe they are enough clients for everyone.
Isn’t it amazing how we process “competitors” as entrepreneurs?
