The competitor to be feared is one who never bothers about you at all, but goes on making his own business better all the time. – Henry Ford
One of the most valuable lessons we can learn in business and life is that your competition lies within. You have no idea what motivates the next man, thus his success(es) or failure(s) should not motivate you. Play your own song. Make your own product. At your own pace. Only you can do business the way you do!
