My boss told me, "People will imitate you. They will try to do what you do. Never worry about them, because there’s only one you. So whatever you’re doing that makes you special, they can imitate it. But they can never be the same person, with the same delivery, with the same gifts and so on." Once you accept that and it’s not a zero sum game, you can be more embracing, I think.
Back in the day when I was unhappily married and unhappily working, I heard a brilliant man by the name of Dr. Phil say the only difference between you and someone you envy is you settle for less. And it just spoke to me. It just spoke to me like, "Yes. That’s exactly right." So, settle for more. That was me. I just started to change my life, little by little. And success breeds success.
