Do not compete to be the best, rather to be unique

Is there a difference between being the best and being unique? Definitely! There is a great qualitative gap. The category of “the only thing” exposes extra-ordinary, special, exclusive conditions, to the point that for this reason it is not populated and has only one exponent.

Is it possible, they may ask, to be unique in something when the planet is populated by millions of individuals, companies, projects and propositions?

It is not easy, but it is possible. And in fact it is a competitive imperative for those who intend to prevail and be successful.

In one way or another, all professionals and businesses compete to be “the best” at what they do (at least they don’t strive to be mediocre or bad). This causes the category where they register to be tremendously populated and have complex dynamics.

On the other hand, and no less important, acting in this category conditions visions and behaviors that cannot lead to the state of “the only thing”. Those who compete to be “the best” run on a track that hardly leads to the extraordinary.

Those who seek to be unique must establish guidelines, define models, explore the unknown, reveal the uncertain, open paths. Tim Grover puts it very well when he says, “don’t compete with others, make them compete with you.” This it is.

When you compete to be the best, you imitate. When it is done to be unique, it innovates.

The most important factor in this logic is distinction.

Those who compete in the category to be unique always leverage elements that distinguish them from others. What is different is never the same and tends to be unique. It is a matter of common sense in many respects.

Usually, it is very difficult to do better what others do, while doing things differently is less complex and more effective. Distinction is the foundation of the unique.

Now, what is different (which is distinguished for this very reason) is a quality of nature, it is not necessarily something that has to be reached, in reality it is an element from which any competitive concern has to start.

All people are unique and different from each other. And although it is often ignored or underestimated, precisely therein lies the advantage. It is absurd to waste precious energy and time trying to emulate others when strengths can be built precisely from differences.

The same thing happens in business. It is easier (and pays better) to look for the difference than to strive to be the best. If the distinction is not clear, the journey is a steep climb conquered by those with the most reserves and resources.

Distinction is the guiding term, “differentiating element” is the vehicle and “distinguished” the qualifying adjective of the state of “the only thing”.

To compete in professional life or in business, one must first assess the distinction that will be exposed to the market. Make it a differentiating element and obtain, thanks to effort and competence, the distinguished status. This is the formula.

It is clear that the process demands competition, obviously. But competition in the capacity sense, not necessarily in the comparative logic. The representative of “the only thing” does not look every moment to the right and left to see how others are doing, he focuses his vision on the goal. He travels another route.

It is possible, of course, that this “other route” ultimately leads to the same goal, but it does so without congestion or obstacles. That is what allows the distinction. The channels of competition to be the best are saturated, and often with tremendously skilled agents. It is difficult to travel there. While the path of the different is never congested.

Certainly, the better things are done, it doesn’t take long for imitators to appear, but by then the advantage is consolidated.

Now, how to sustain the advantage is already part of another story. Nothing will prevent the distinguished himself from having to protect and defend his conquests, because life never stops, obviously, not even for those who are different.

For the only one, “perfect competition” does not exist, he is an exponent of monopolistic dynamics.

This contrasts with the economic premises that have always supported the theory of the free market. But it is completely logical, because “the only one” is essentially a monopoly. And as long as this is so, he is also an agent who can optimize his performance, because among other things, he does not need to commit energy, time and resources in dealing with competitors.

See the case of Google, a company that, for the purposes of its distinction in the market, is free to behave as a monopoly agent (this in the functional sense, not in the legal one). Its growth can be exponential and its social and economic contributions too. It has the luxury of establishing avant-garde policies in the treatment of its collaborators and effectively contributing to issues as diverse as caring for the environment.

A company busy competing tooth and nail with its rivals does not have the time or resources to contribute to the qualitative evolution of the industry or the environment in which it operates.
The same goes for a professional. As long as he has to worry about not being nipped at or overtaken, he enjoys a poor quality of life and contributes little to his environment.

There are many examples like Google in the business world, all of a distinguished nature: Amazon, Microsoft, Apple, Tik Tok, Intel, Tesla, etc. Each one of them is a unique exponent in terms of what they do. They may have competitors, indeed, but having worked out a solid distinction from the beginning, they have left a lot of distance and “scorched earth” behind them, which makes it extremely difficult for them to catch up (this added to the efficiency they have in their management, obviously ).

An interesting example of the extension and influence that the exponents of the unique can achieve is the case of the largest Foundation that exists in the world. One that is dedicated to addressing sensitive issues in the interests of humanity: the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. This is the product of the business performance of a particular institution: Microsoft.

Being the only one not only pays at the moment, but also over time. It is a competitive model that has transcendental character. And everything starts from considering “what is different” to start the journey.

You are part of that universe of “different” that populates existence. It has been since the day he was born. There is no one similar anywhere. You have gifts, virtues and strengths that cannot be compared, so why try to be the same as others and travel on high traffic roads?

These differentiating elements can be invested in your professional and business projects. They are an invaluable basis for planning the trip, because in addition to what has been said, any distinction on which the actions are based reinforces the circuit of satisfaction.

Nothing is done better than what few can do with the same solvency and efficiency. That generates powerful feedback. It has always been true that excellence is a consequence of love.

As long as it is inevitable to do what is right in this life, adopting the criterion of not competing to be the best and rather doing it to be unique, seems like an intelligent act.

Investing in Nicaragua

Nicaragua is located in the heart of Central America and has stood out in recent years for consistent economic growth, strategic location and for being one of the safest countries in the region.
Today there exist many opportunities for investors that establish a business in Nicaragua. With a low barrier of entry, even compared with other countries in the region, the process for incorporating a company in Nicaragua is fast and easy from start to finish. This means that within a short amount of time an investor would be able to set up a company and begin investing in a country that has a rapidly growing middle class, a robust tourism industry and a national strategy geared towards growth. Also, the government has implemented in the interest of making Nicaragua a competitive option for any investor important incentives that have been pivotal in the exponential growth of import/export industries, manufacturing, forestry and even agricultural sectors.

Incorporating

The best way to set up a business in Nicaragua is through a corporation. The best and most used corporate entity is the Sociedad Anónima or what could also simply be referred to as a stock corporation.

It is important to note that at the moment a Sociedad Anónima or stock corporation is currently the only option available for foreign investors to invest in the country since other regiments require the individual to have either citizenship or permanent residency in Nicaragua.

Other than the aforementioned, the rest of the process for incorporating is straight forward and the requirements are minimal. Additionally, there is no requirement that requires foreign investors to include a Nicaraguan resident or citizen to be part of the corporation.

Some of the benefits of the Sociedad Anónima are as follows:

• Anonymity of the shareholders.
• The entity is considered a Nicaraguan person and it may be used to petition residency for any of its shareholders that are foreigners.
• As a Nicaraguan person the entity is protected by Nicaraguan legislation.
• Unlike the Limited Liability Company, the Sociedad Anónima may continue as long as there are at least 2 shareholders and a Nicaraguan or permanent resident as Legal Representative.

Legal Representation

Since the corporation is a separate legal entity distinct from its shareholders it is required that the shareholders that form the corporation appoint a legal representative to act on behalf of the entity.
The legal representative has to be a Nicaraguan Resident or Citizen and have a domicile in the country.

It is important and recommended that the shareholders designate someone of their trust to assume representation. Additionally, even though the legal representative generally speaking has considerable powers or representation, these can also be limited as the Board of Directors deem reasonable.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the process take?

 The process to incorporate in Nicaragua, once after having finalized and signed the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws usually takes from 4 to 6 weeks. After this process you may begin realizing all the different activities for which you established the company for, and you may also begin applying for the different incentives that are applicable to your company.

Do I have to be in the country?

 It isn’t necessary for the founding shareholders to physically be present within the country for the signing of the articles of incorporation or the appointment of the legal representative. The business can be incorporated in Nicaragua wherever the shareholders are throughout the world.

What are my immediate obligations after having incorporated?

 After incorporating your obligations are to report taxes each month to both national and municipal tax authorities.

For businesses that need to maintain inventory, once a year an annual year-end inventory declaration is due within the first 30 days of January.

All corporations must also declare an annual year end income tax declaration without exception before the last day of February of every year.

Corporations must also maintain accounting records in compliance with regulations in Nicaragua and utilize fiscal documents that are in accordance with policies established by Nicaraguan Tax Authorities.

 Proffesional Employer Organization (PEO) www.gceglobalsolutions.com 

Maybe you were wondering what PEO is. Well, the Professional employer organizations (PEO) are entities that provide employee management services, such as payroll processing, benefits management and recruitment, to businesses. This allows employers to outsource their human resource functions, such as employee benefits, compensation and payroll administration, workers’ compensation, and employment taxes.

PEO’s are the most effective way for small and mid-sized companies to outsource employer services such as payroll services, benefit plan administration and workers’ compensation administration.

Now, you may be wondering what are the benefits of hiring a PEO for your business, so next we will list some of them:

Positive Return Of Investment (ROI).
Employers see an average annual return on investment of 27.2% from using a PEO.

Faster growth rate. Businesses who use a PEO grow 7-9% faster and are 50% less likely to go out of business.

Improved compliance. PEOs stay up-to-date on business regulations to reduce risk and ensure your company remains compliant.

Hire a PEO means you’re going to lose control of your company? The reality is that you will never lose control of your business when you hire a PEO. In fact, a PEO will help you make more informed HR decisions that will make your business stronger. But remember, PEO don’t take control of your business and by that the hiring and firing decisions are totally on you.

#DoItWithGCE 

If you have considered starting a business inside or outside your country, or if you already have an established company, surely the payment of the employee’s payroll is an issue that you have paid special attention to. And it is a process that demands dedicated personnel, with knowledge of the legislation and current regulations and the use of specialized tools to perform this function, extra costs that undoubtedly some companies cannot afford so easily.
Fortunately, there is an effective solution for this need, Payroll outsourcing, which is an excellent option for any company, regardless of size, that wants this process to be carried out in the best way, saving resources in its execution. 

As we have mentioned, Payroll outsorcing has different benefits for your company, below we list 5 of the main reasons for hiring this service: 

Cost savings 

Payroll outsourcing often saves you money compared to performing this task inhouse. Processing payroll in-house means investing in the necessary IT equipment, payroll or accounting software, and providing training to managers to ensure payroll is processed correctly. 

Additionally, employers must stay up-to-date on changes in tax rules, staffing, and accounting deadlines. 

Ignoring these issues can be costly and expose the company to additional liability. 

Prioritization of the main business Payroll is unlikely to be a core function of your business. 

Because it’s a secondary function, whatever time and resources you put into it means less time to focus on income-generating activities. By hiring an expert in controlling your payroll processing, you can better use your time in areas more closely related to your core business or revenue centers, such as customer service, sales, and marketing.

Save time 

Whether you have 10 or 100 employees, processing payroll takes a lot of time and attention. Processing payroll internally means that you or your staff may need to enter extensive data.
When you consider the time spent processing and managing payroll, outsourcing to a trusted service provider can seem attractive. After all, time is money. 

Expertise 

Working with an international provider of Payroll outsourcing services means you gain access to their years of experience. 

This instant access is especially important if you work in different parts of the world and need an expert who is familiar with all the local rules and regulations. 

Normative compliance 

One of the most daunting tasks for small and medium-sized businesses is complying with mandatory laws, regulations, and rules, especially when foreign governments are involved.
Companies may need in-depth knowledge of various regulations to avoid breaking the law. Legal and compliance requirements related to payroll are often complex. It becomes even more complicated when operating internationally.
By hiring payroll from a trusted service provider, you can delegate this task to a company that is aware of local, regional and national laws and regulations to avoid unnecessary sanctions or audits caused by potential non-compliance.
Now, after reading this blog, you surely have a clearer idea of the benefits that hiring a professional payroll outsorcing service brings to your company and in GCE Global Solutions you will be able to find the strategic ally you need, offering you the most efficient and competitive solution of the market, always ready to work for the success of your organization.
In addition to payroll outsourcing services, at GCE Global Solutions you can also find legal outsourcing services, accounting, fiscal and tax outsourcing and commercial and marketing outsourcing, multiple solutions in the same partner. 

At GCE global Solutions we do things right!

Each one defines the nature and measure of what success is in their life. But in all cases, it is the product of an inductive process, one that starts from the small until reaching.

 

Success is not a «great phenomenon» that appears suddenly in life. It is not a fact that responds to chance, and it is seldom the result of chance.

 

Success is the product of effort and sacrifice.
Countless decisions, losses, and concessions, «sweat and tears.»
Nothing costs a person more than to achieve it. Because it summarizes his logos, victories, the meaning, and the purpose of his life.

 

No one can claim that they do not pursue success; it does not agree with human nature. There may be no homogeneous criterion to determine what success is or represents for everyone, but this it’s sought. From the conscious dimension or from the energy that emerges from the subconscious.

 

The search for success is a cry of the human Spirit. His short life on the planet is a record of efforts to achieve it. Man is born destined for this task. He lives trying to fulfill it and dies committed to the labor.

 

Now, classifying success beyond its essential sense of victory or purpose fulfilled involves something else.

It is difficult for anyone to understand it outside of intimate personal boundaries.

 

Sadly, today it has become a «socially acceptable» premise to link success to certain achievements or statuses. There is a kind of «social court» provides models and examples of what success is. And he dares to establish concrete associations between himself and people or things.

 

This exercise can be called anything, but it is not an explanation of success. This cannot be judged by third parties. The criterion that defines it is intimate, totally personal.

 

The yardstick that measures a person’s success is his exclusive property. And so it is also the shortest rod that exists, the least pious.

No one escapes to his measure, but neither has the right to pass judgment on others.

 

How many people who have been «socially» recognized for their success have ended their days feeling completely miserable? And on the other hand, how many people inscribed in the deepest anonymity rest in the stillness and in the heat of victory?

 

And is that Success is written with a lowercase «e»; If there is a great victory, the final triumph, or the grandiose achieving. This is nothing more than a delicate sum of successes with a small “e”; Small achievements, concrete victories.

 

Now, why is the measure of success on a small scale? Here is a simple but transcendental answer: victory or the achievement that qualifies success is the product of man’s triumph over himself.

 

There is no more difficult battle than that which man fights with himself. There is no more important undertaking or effort that pays better.

 

When man overcomes his limitations, fears, impediments, frustrations, he meets exactly the most demanding success parameter. But given the magnitude of these adversaries, victories are not summarized in big headlines; they are measured in small achievements.

 

The man who accumulates smalltriumphs over himself, protects and consolidates them, is firmly heading for victory.

 

This fight lasts a lifetime. For those who seek success, the pause does not exist, because it is, in reality, a fuel for failure.

 

For some reason, failure takes root man within himself.  Notfound on external factors.

 

Nor is it, of course, the product of chance, fate, or fate. Well, be it so! Because human beings have shown an admirable ability to overcome the elements, overcome catastrophes and shape their destiny on earth.
However, it is a defenseless creature when it must face itself, vulnerable and incapable.

 

In large part, this is because people put themselves at a disadvantage by observing and measuring challenges in their full magnitude.

 

Man makes a mistake when comparing the measure of his success with the size of the adversity he faces that way because it seems distant and unattainable.

The university student who fails to perform in his subjects rarelythinks that
success is probably found in the ability to get up an hour earlier each day.

 

The office worker who does not receive a job promotion, little does he think that success awaits him after a different disposition to go to work every day.
Without regret, wanting to do it one more time.

 

The success of those who no longer want to smoke begins by quitting for half a day.
Then a full day and then two. At a certain point, that success with a small “e” has become a great success (because that is how the winner must consider it).

 

The success that the father wants is probably in the need to beat time and have the necessary to pick up the child from school.

 

In the turbulence that qualifies life, there will be few who say that little remedies do not heal great ills. But here lies a fundamental error.
Because as long as success is not understandable as «a small and transcendental detail» it will be outside the ability of man to achieve it.

 

Success is actually a small detail. But do not forget
that important things are made of details! How the universe is made of atoms.

Once a little success has been achieved, it is necessary to hold fast to victory. And then continue the march in pursuit of a new one. When this process does not stop, a man reaches greater heights.

 

There is no more energy for the soul than the feeling of triumph and the taste of victory. Nothing is more stimulating. When a man knows victory, he does not stop in his eagerness to replicate it.

 

In the same way, when victory is elusive because the struggle toachieve it is enormous, the burden is hard on the soul.

 

It takes a lot to think and understand the profound logic of the following: is there a goal, no matter how ambitious, that is not made up of many elements? Working on these elements is not also reached the whole? The larger the hole, isn’t it more convenient to attack the components?

 

Well, why then deny yourselfthe possibility of attackingproblems in their small but vital components?

One by one, firmly. Consolidating one success after another. And if there are many problems, then also attack them ONE by ONE, overcoming them consecutively. In doing so, at some point, the core structure of the issue gives way.

 

Never has the great oriental patience been so well exposed as in the adage that «every journey of a thousand leagues begins with the first step.» How can this logic be denied? How to ignore it? That first step is the first victory; it is the first success. One that should be written with a lowercase «e»; But one without which nothing else exists.

 

Human nature has shown the grandeur of the wood with which it is made. Man does not feel like a weak creature in the face of the immensity of the universe that houses him. There are a few times that he has challenged him and has bent his arm. He is weak when faced with himself. He underestimates the destructive power that he has within him. He proudly behaves when he does not know that the problem is in him. That is why success eludes him.

 

It is vital to do something different. Start that little march after the hits with a small “e”.

On the other hand, what can be lost? Well, if you don’t dosomething different, you will only get more of the same as always.
