Creative vs Competitive Mind

From Science of Getting Rich — Wallace D. Wattles

Competitive Mind

The competitive mind was one that dominated the thinking of the industrial age. With monopolists like Carnegie, Rockefeller, Morgan, Ford skyrocketing USA to be the world leader, the competitive mind led to major success for a handful of businesses. It needs to be acknowledged that these methods have led to incredible development of humanity where it is today. They created the means of capitalism that we all benefit the rewards from.

  1. Close your eyes and notice the thoughts you have
  2. Step back and observe what you want and the reason why
  3. Clear your mind and observe your senses
  4. Focus on what you want, what you really want.
  5. Turn that thought into reality by feeling the emotions you will when you get what you are thinking about

Use value is greater than the exchanged value

Remember, the competitive mind is a zero sum game. It is similar to Simon Sinek’s idea of a finite/infinite game.

Creative Mind

The creative mind is one that knows what it wants. It does not focus others. This mindset is required more and more in the present time where things are becoming decentralised and away from the industrial age.
