“A flower does not compete with the flowers around itself it just blooms” regardless of its size, color, height or smell. Therefore, as a business owner, you should not focus solely on your competitor. Competitions are always present, focus more on chasing goals not the competition. Below are a few reasons why you should not worry about competitors and what you should focus on instead.
You Are Limiting Yourself

You Hand Over Power
Handing over your power is what happens when your mindset is based on your competitor. Your competitor becomes in-charge indirectly because your thought becomes channeled towards how better off they are or what they own that you do not.
You Become Distracted
Focus on your goal and how to move forward are placed aside when you start trying to put up with your competitor. Keeping an eye on your competitor isn’t a bad idea but when you become obsessed with them instead of tending to customer satisfaction and growth, you can become distracted.
Focusing on your competitor distracts your from your customers, which can derail you from achieving your goals.

Your product may need re-branding. Work towards getting a new design for it. For example, many cookie companies redesign their packaging to attract children. Re-branding is not compulsory but necessary.
