As business owners we must maintain a healthy mental attitude towards competition.
I found a recent interview with UFC President Dana White fascinating and wanted to share Dana’s thoughts competition that the UFC is facing from Viacom owned Bellator:
“They’re never going to be as good as us,” UFC President Dana White told MMAjunkie.com. “This is what we do 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Christmas. Easter. Let Christmas time come. Viacom shuts down from Dec. 3 to after the new year and then all the big holidays in between. Christmas? I’m on the fucking phone on Christmas. Easter? I’m on the phone. Thanksgiving? I’m on the phone. Bad shit happens in our business every day, and if something real bad happens, I’m on a fucking plane on Christmas Day flying to fix it. That’s the difference between us and everybody else.
Nobody’s ever going to outwork us or outhustle us. That’s just never going to happen. It’s impossible.”
“We just beat the Rolling Stones in Winnipeg,” White said. “I’m not just trying to beat Viacom MMA or any of these other guys. I want to beat the fucking Rolling Stones. I want to beat Major League Baseball on Wednesday night if they’re going head-to-head with us in the timeslot. I want to beat the NFL someday. I want to beat everybody. I want to win.” – Dana White, 6-24-13, (via MMAJunkie.com)
Let Dana’s fierce words give you a fierce determination to make your small business the best it can be!
