Do you have a competitive or creative spirit?

Before you answer consider this:

Most of you have seen the Daffy Duck cartoon where he finds a ton of gold in a cave and wants it all. He’s screaming “mine! mine! mine! go! go! go! it’s all mine!”  He has more gold than he can possibly use, yet, he won’t share.  His limitless supply to him seems to have limits.  He won’t share the opportunity for better things with anyone, his only focus being lack, need, and want.  This is the competitive spirit.  And we all know how it worked out for the Duck!  The competitive spirit is only concerned with getting theirs, or, “I’ll get them before they get me.”  The competitive spirit creates opportunity only for themselves.

Now on the other hand the creative spirit, not only creates opportunity for themselves, but for others as well.  They are just concerned about the success of others as they are about their own.  By helping others he (or she) creates even more possibility for their own success and expansion.  This expansion is what I like to call “More” more of the good things, money, health, friends, family, happiness, ALL without limits!  That’s right, UNLIMITED!  Ok, so how can you get some of that creative spirit and cash in on “More”?  Easy, take the first step, think of how to make it better for someone else.  It doesn’t have to be a big thing, say smile and hold a door for someone.  If you are finishing with a wedding client and ask them “Do you have a florist? no? I know of a great one for you!”  And then she finds a great florist, creating “More” for her AND “More” for the florist!  Now, do you think the client and florist will create “More” for you? Yes! without a doubt!

This “More” expands, creating more of “More”. Keep this in mind, if we don’t create more of “More” the opposite happens, nature abhors a vacuum, if we don’t make “More” it will get filled with less.

Think and now answer the question, be honest with yourself, and if you don’t like the answer, isn’t now the time to change?
