The best way to kill your competition is to humanize them, friend them, and mentor them. They will realize, rather quickly, that they just can’t keep up with your awesomeness.
Go ahead. Extend an authentic olive branch. Your competition will either step up or move on — and most likely, they will go away. Who wants to compete against your brilliance and compassion?
When you demonize your competition, you bring out the worst in yourself — and you look like a chump.
Hands down, chumps always lose.
