How many competitions have you entered in your life? Is there just ONE that stands out? Did you WIN anything or placed in the event?
It’s in our nature to be competitive, but about making “placements” in our life as a whole? Huh? I know this may sound a bit confusing, but stick with me here. We all have priorities no matter what our age is. We categorize them and then act on them accordingly.
Some of these priorities have TOP placement in our lives, while others tend to ALWAYS be at the bottom of the barrel! Our priorities are influenced by EVERYTHING around us.
I found that if I am around a group of ambitious entrepreneur’s I too will be very ambitious. If I am around a group of complainers, then I find myself complaining about stuff. It’s the way things work…you are who you hang around.
In my family, we place our Family’s needs above EVERYTHING! We go above and beyond to help each other out. It’s almost like it’s in our DNA.
Recently, my wife and I were in a pickle. It was something important that needed to be taken care of immediately. After a discussion, we then turned to friends and family about it. The reaction was AMAZING! our family responded with ease and quickness!
Our problem was solved and taken care of by FAMILY members of ALL sorts! It wasn’t just ONE group of Family member’s, it was several different ones with different backgrounds that came together and SOLVED our problem.
I couldn’t be more thankful for the LOVE and SUPPORT we have in our family members. This situation right here is the EXACT reason why we place FAMILY FIRST!!!
That’s right, Family took FIRST PLACE!
It’s a give and take kind of thing that I don’t think ANYONE can explain. We do NOT take it for granted and are overwhelmingly grateful to be a part of such a loving network of people.
I was just curious if there is ANYONE else out there who feels the same way or has ANOTHER priority (aside from God) first?
Let me know if you share a similar experience and if you too place FAMILY FIRST!

Doesn’t this feel like it goes against EVERYTHING society throws at us? I mean, the majority of what’s on TV are folks constantly fighting to be “the best”.
Sports aside, there are shows like: The Voice, American Idol, Shark Tank, American Ninja, Survivor, The Bachelor, etc. You know as well I as I do this list can literally go on forever. Everything is basically a competition.
The good news is we don’t have to live our lives like that. I know this goes against the grain, but it’s TRUE!
As you may have read in my past posts about THE SCIENCE OF GETTING RICH, author Wallace D. Wattles elaborates on this non-competition idea.
“You must get rid of the thought of competition. You are to create, not to compete for what is already created. You do not have to take anything from anyone…You are to become a creator, not a competitor; you are going to get what you want, but in such a way that when you get it every other man will have more than he has now.”
Pretty neat concept, right? We need to stay in our creative states, as there is plenty to go around! So you can STOP stressing about the competition and still get what you want!
Let me know what you think about this concept in the comment section!
