Your Odds Of Winning Are Even Better Than You Realize

MOST PEOPLE WON’T EVEN TRY, so your odds of winning are even better than you realize.
I’m here writing an essay for an entrepreneurship contest that I’m entering, and it got me thinking.
People bow out of opportunities all the time – they don’t think they are good enough, they don’t want to put in the effort, they don’t want to write the 2,000 word essay, or they make a variety of other excuses. It means that those of us who DO participate have a much better chance than we realize.
If you are reaching out for a public speaking opportunity, keep in mind that the event planner may have only been approached by you and 3 other people.
If you are getting in touch with a company who you hope will hire your company for the services it provides, you might actually be the only one who followed up on the emails you sent to HR.
If you are applying for a scholarship, you may be 1 of only 20 people who took the hours to put together a qualifying entry.
The odds are more in your favor than you realize.
