Be Your Best Competition and Win
From the early stages of life, we are driven to compete with each other. Whether in the workplace, in life, in school or in the game of sports, competition is the culture.
Winning is considered right, no matter if losing teaches you a lesson. Every loss should be a teachable moment just like the win.
We strive to win because it puts you in a position of leverage. A right to brag and the right to take title. And losing, well no one remembers the loser. Even the loser wants to forget they loss.
If you are not a competitive person, you are considered weak or not aggressive enough to make things happen and this is often frowned upon.
The truth is competition can be overwhelming. It can also make you feel unworthy if you are not necessarily a competitive person. Don’t say that too loud! In fact, don’t say it at all. How you think of competition can be a game changer.
When you think of competition, try thinking of what can you do to be better at what you do. Try seeking what’s needed to help you get there. Focus on what you want and how it will change your life if it’s achieved.
Competition.. make it personal and all about you.
I learned how to be a better me when I made it personal. I became my greatest competition versus the competitors of others. After all, you are your greatest asset.
I began to stop comparing myself and the game changed. I started counting my personal wins and each win opened the door for another new opportunity.
3 Reasons Why SELF Competition is Good
1. It keeps you abreast and accountable of your own personal goals. You set them. You meet them. You exceed them. And you keep growing. Need help setting goals? Check out this guide.
2. It gives you something bigger and better to strive for daily. Your self competition will chime into where you started and your progress towards each level. Create markers and chart it regularly.
3.YOU set your own limits and expectations vs someone or something else giving them to you. This allows you to do what truly makes you happy in life. You are not tied to living a life your parents dreamed of or living through what society deems as successful.
In business and life, understand you are the CEO of you an every decision you make is based on what YOU do next. Make the decision to not compete with others, but compete with yourself and watch your level of growth surge everyday. This sums it up here.
