It’s Not a Competition

People sometimes get this idea that there are not enough resources on this planet. Not enough money, not enough water, not enough whatnot. The truth is, there are more than enough resources, it’s just that they are not equally distributed.

Yes, in a way, you kinda have to “compete” with other people on the market, in terms of getting noticed that is. But in another way, you don’t. If you told 1 million people to write a blog post on the same topic, every single post would still come out differently. Because every single person is different. If you like one brand of chocolate, does that mean you can’t like another? Of course not. If you like the work of one person, does that mean you can’t like the work of another person? Of course not. If millions of people like a product, does that mean you have to like it too? Of course not. You know, you can even transfer this way of thinking to relationships. Just because you love one person, does that mean you cannot love another? I mean, if you think about it, it’s ridiculous to be jealous and say things like “You’re in a relationship with me now, so you are not allowed to like anyone else!”. That’s like saying “Okay, you like this brand of chocolate, so you’re not allowed to like another one”. That’s just complete nonsense, right? Do you really think with billions and billions of people on this planet, there is only one person you can love? Nah. You see, true love is inclusive, not exclusive. True love doesn’t have an opposite. Egoic love is just possessiveness. Am I off topic again? lol. Sorry.

Honestly, I often have a hard time trying to find work/products that I would call “high quality”. If everyone was like me, a lot of companies probably wouldn’t exist lol. Like, why is it so hard to find a good online dictionary? I don’t get it. I don’t get why you have to add all that unnecessary shit to it and design it in a way that makes it hard to navigate and not get confused or overwhelmed by all the ads, random words and pictures popping up everywhere. Also, all that shit makes your site incredibly slow, why are you not aware of all this?! You see, a lot of low quality stuff sells itself because of good marketing and because people don’t know/have any other options or because they themselves are “low quality” lol. Yes, I know it’s not your fault, but I still would like to insult you. Maybe it will make you a little bit more aware. Or you will just get defensive. Either way, I have my fun.

I’ve read some blog posts where people complain (?) about how hard it is these days to get noticed and stay relevant and how the market is oversaturated. Weeeell. As I have said before, I personally have a hard time finding stuff that I would consider high quality. I could like someone’s content, but not the way it is presented. Or vice versa. Also, different people attract different audiences. I’ve especially noticed this on Youtube, where I sometimes see relatively popular people with millions of subscribers who, apparently, are a “big deal” and then I check them out to see what it’s all about expecting some high quality content (actually that’s not true, I usually can tell by the thumbnail and/or title if a video is gonna be shitty, but hey, I gave it a shot), but I’m just like “Wtf?”. Also, I literally never look at the “Trending” tab, but when I do it’s always the most low-conscious shit that’s “trending”. Well, you know what they I say: low consciousness sells.

So, what I’ve been trying to tell you is that everyone is unique and has the potential to create something that helps and inspires other people. Whether or not and to what extend someone(‘s creation) actually gets noticed is another story. But in terms of uniqueness and available support, it is not a competition. It doesn’t matter if the thing you want to do has already been done by another person, because you will do it differently, maybe even better. And trust me, if you do high quality work, people will appreciate it and support you.
