Lucky People Don’t Compete, They Cooperate.
I just received this email from a fellow blogger and I felt it was worth sharing it on my blog. I responded to the email but I feel I should write about what went through my head as I read this email.
I recently found your website by simply browsing online for other good blogs. I run my own blog, and I am trying to link to other blogs I think my visitors might like to visit once they are done on my site.
Since my website is visited by 1,000′s of blog readers daily, I am positive many of my visitors would be interested in visiting your weblog once they leave mine. I figured you wouldn’t mind if I link to your site since we are not competitors, and both have similar internet viewers on our sites. Please let me know if this is OK with you? Do you think you can link back to my websitehiswebsite.com (for anonymity)? Thanks.

Do You Compete with Your Spouse or Significant Other?
With male and female roles changing so significantly in recent years, I’m wondering how much this may have affected our egos? Do you compete with your spouse or significant other? Yes, we all likely say we wish nothing but the best for our partners, but deep inside do we feel envy sometimes? I think this is one of those semi-taboo topics that aren’t aired much, which means, of course, I’m going to wade right into it.
The Creator Versus the Competitor
Human beings are competitive animals by nature. There is no other way to explain how we made it from the valleys of Africa to the species we are today. If you are a Bible-toting person, you may describe competition in terms of us leaving the Garden of Eden and going from wearing leaves to wearing jeans. The human race is always striving to be bigger and better.
