Growth Through Competition: How Friendly Rivalry Forces Improvement

Ever since my childhood, I’ve always been in friendly competition with my peers.

My earliest memory is fighting over who sat at which table in Kindergarten, or trying to be the line leader.

This evolved to sports in my youth; who gets to play quarterback; why do you pass to him but not to me?Ā 

As I look back, it’s always been this driving force in my life; pushing me to become the best version of myself achievable.

Even today I’m still comparing myself to the friends around me, but it’s friendly; we aren’t truly against one another in the sense that we want to push each-other down for the sake of them being unable to recover.

Though we knock each-other down, we always pick each-other back up.

This is an awesome book I recommend for improving your life

  5. Sounds like the kind of book I need to read. šŸ™‚ Too bad I don’t have coworkers to be rivals with right now, I could use something to step up my game.

    I’ve always been competitive, even though a lot of the time I don’t show it openly. Inside, I’m thinking about how to become better.
