Worrying About The Competition

Rachael showed up for her trial as a part-time dishwasher in a local cafe, donned her apron and was sent into battle alongside Lolita. Lolita who was a fairly recent addition to the staff was worried, the manager had already had a word with her about picking up the pace at busy times. As she showed Rachael the ropes she tried her best to put her off, asking her why she didn’t look for a better, more glamorous job.

The poor girl then spent the rest of the afternoon accidentally dropping and breaking things.

If you care more about protecting what you’ve got than being generous, you’ve already lost.

If you spend your time looking over your shoulder, how will you find time to make a difference?

If you think someone can do your job better than you, they probably can.

If you believe that someone can replace you, they probably should.

If you don’t think you’ll be missed when you’re gone, then why are you staying?

If you work at being the best you can be, you won’t have to worry about the competition.
