Competition is part of the human spirit and is a vital aspect of all of our lives. Whether in business, sport, politics, entertainment, and industry—you name it—competition drives motivation and innovation.

As Andrew Carnegie said, “…while the law of competition may be sometimes hard for the individual, it is best for the race, because it ensures the survival of the fittest in every department.” 

While it’s important to never lose sight of your competitors so you can react positively if they begin to out-develop you, it’s equally important to watch what they do wrong. They will undoubtedly make mistakes, so learn from them and act accordingly.

Competition makes you want to be on top; to be first; to be the leader. You persevere until you get to that exalted position. If you’re toppled from your perch (for whatever reason) your inner life force tells you to start all over again until you get back on top. That’s the nature of someone like me who is competitive. You have no choice. It defines your very being.
