The Green Bay Packers won the first NFL Super Bowl, do you know who finished second?
The Wright brothers flew the first airplane, who flew the second one?
Roger Bannister was the first person to run one mile under four minutes, who was the second?
Alexander Graham Bell made the first telephone call, who made the second?
Chances are, you don’t know who was second in any of the above mentioned questions. The reason is that finishing first vs finishing second is frequently a HUGE difference. Despite this, we frequently follow the leader and do the same thing they do even though it means at best, we will be number two.
If you can’t be number one in what you are competing in, see if you can change the competition. If you are an author, you might not make it to number one on the best seller list, but you might be able to be number one in your specific niche.
Look to be number one and good things will frequently follow
Have a great day!
