I was watching a repeat episode of Oprah's Super Soul Sunday yesterday where she was interviewing three young, up-and-coming motivators. Toward the end of the interview, she asked them if they felt like they were in competition with one another. One of them gave an answer that really got me to thinking...
"If we're in competition, then we're not doing the work." - Gabrielle Bernstein
Whatever we set out to do, ultimately it is for the greater good. Whether you are a parent, author, teacher, community organizer, in a relationship or a friend we all want better or the best for our loved ones and circumstances. No matter the way that you work, create, serve, or co-exist, the goal at the heart of it all is to do good in the world.
Why then, are we so often in competition with one another? If the goal is to do good for people, God, your children, your loved ones, or whatever you motivation may be, we must work together and help one another.
It makes me think of the term, "Lift as you climb." This weekend while studying documentaries, I watched one about singer Roberta Flack. They talked about how her church saw her talent and potential, so they paid for her to study music at Howard University. It made me wonder, are we still doing that? Are we still collaborating, cooperating and supporting our people?
This week I challenge you to examine your relationships at work, at home and in your community. What is the purpose and motivation behind why you do what you do? What is your "Why?" Now think about how much more smoothly and quickly we can all reach all of our goals if we work together instead of against each other. Give this some thought and identify one area where you can work together with someone or a group of people for the greater good.
This week I challenge you to Cancel the Competition.

Lake Mary, Fl. police have confirmed that George Zimmerman was shot at while traveling in his vehicle on Monday afternoon. Zimmerman flagged down a police officer saying he was involved in a shooting. The shooter, Matthew Apperson, had also asked for police to be called. Flagging down a bystander he yelled, "I just shot George Zimmerman, call 911. I don't have a phone." The two men were involved in previous disputes and during one last year Apperson called because he felt threatened. Zimmerman was taken to the hospital and treated for minor wounds from shattered glass rather than from the bullet narrowly missing his head. Apperson said he had a right to shoot as Zimmerman brandished a gun. Zimmerman's lawyer denied his client pointed any gun. Please, please tell me that traffic cams in the area were working at tip-top shape! No arrests or charges have yet been filed pending an investigation. I'm praying for a leak that shows any footage from this incident!
