Becoming #1 Puts a Target on Your Back

From episode: TGMS Ep: 126 When You Are #1, Youre a Moving Target

know, there's something about success, there's something about winning that drives some people nuts. They get extremely jealous, they get extremely envy, they're just uncomfortable around winners. Personally, I can't get my head around it. I try, but I can't get my head around it. Personally, when I'm around winners, I'm a sponge. I want to know how to win too. I want to learn from these people. Then I want to implement a few things in my life or my business. And sometimes I want to even do it better than they did. But sometimes when people see someone else achieving their goals and making great strides in personal life, in business, in sports, it brings like feelings of inadequacy or jealousy or envy. And unfortunately not everyone is able to set those feelings aside and genuinely celebrate someone's success. Again, I can't get my head around this. That's why I'm extremely passionate about talking about it today. Let's face it. Sometimes people hate winners because of their envy and the dislike for the good fortune of others. It's hard to even find much information online about this. When I was trying to Google, when you're number one, you're a moving target. I kept finding things like the number one reason you have a business you hate or hating your job intensely is not a business plan or running a business you hate. It's not what I was talking about.

And we gradually worked our way to the top to number one stayed number one for years. And it's we're a moving target. I mean, we've got people shooting arrows at us from the front, the side, the back angled from the tops. I mean, it's unreal. So, you know, maybe we can't find stuff like this on Google because our society in general, that's either it's either getting soft or we are jealous of others and we just admit it or I have no idea. I just really I have no idea. Okay, so competition is always going to be amongst us and we're going to have competition in business. Even though I told you I don't like competition, it doesn't really. You know why I don't like competition? Because I don't have any good competition. I don't I don't have any really good, solid competition. Well, you know, they say that we always have competition, but we just we just personally at McAfee, we just aim to be the best at what we do and take care of people and other companies just kind of get in our way because they don't get it. That might sound arrogant to you. It probably does, but I'm just telling the truth. We just take care of people better than we try to do it better than anyone else. And we strive to be the best.
