SPI 504: How I Forgot to Be Myself and The Power of Superpower

That’s right—follow-up Friday episodes are back!

I wanted to talk about something that crossed my mind after this week’s conversation with Ali Abdaal. And this is a result of “competition.”

When you start to build a business and do competitive research, you come across people who are already doing amazing things in the space. You come across people who are amazing writers. You come across people who write just the most beautiful emails in the world. You come across people, like Ali, who have incredible storytelling capabilities and who have the ability to create very professional videos. And you always wonder to yourself, “Man, why can’t I do it like them?”

And sometimes you’ll try to do it like them—but that’s almost never the right choice. You’ve got to check yourself before you wreck yourself, and that’s what I want to talk about today.
