Give a pernicious attitude sufficient rope and it will hang itself. An individual started a doppelgänger company of TACFIT, and began spreading slanderous rumors about my background to discredit my reputation and further his standing in the marketplace. I was asked to contact the organizers of an event where he will be presenting, in order to apprise them of his deceptions.
Observing behavioral patterns from an objective “coaching” perspective, when a behavior proves unsuccessful and destructive, evolve your world view or expect repeated failure and destruction. Though I’ve had a different perspective in the past, my viewpoint has changed over the years, using this litmus test for success. I will provide proof of every single claim I’ve made and will diligently continue to do my own work at my own prolific pace, but I won’t police others behavior even if I’m being infringed upon by others.
People who prey upon your success in order to duplicate it as their own and defame your name to elevate their own, will destroy themselves because they have an insufficiently developed attitude necessary for abundance and growth.
We cannot succeed by reducing our behavior down to their antagonistic level. If you’re following your passion, then others will attempt to reproduce your success They are following you, because they cannot yet comprehend your true nature of empowering positive development and fostering community support through the expression of your personal power. An attitude of drama will fixate on reproducing success perceived in the marketplace, rather than truly innovating and stimulating growth. Ultimately people want progress not purchases, authenticity not drama, transparency not rhetoric, so they WILL discover the difference between an innovator and a duplicator.
In my experience as a martial artist, you ultimately lose when reducing yourself to the level of an opponent who attempts to cheat to win, who attempts to harm others unjustly to further their position. Instead, the more honorably we fight with higher consciousness in mind, the greater triumph we bring to both ourselves AND our opponents. We both win, when we continue to take the “high road,” and resist delving into competitive drama.
We succeed for us AND FOR THEM by leading by powerful example of how we ought to behave for abundance and growth, ESPECIALLY when faced with the choice of joining in the injustice, or choosing the harder path of remaining above it. Stay the course, brothers and sisters. Fight with honor by doing your best work, following your true calling, and listening to your inner compass. Win the real fight within… for all of our sakes.
