What role does competition play in your career?

Although I have not yet started a career, competition has arose to be a challenging factor as a high school student. I see myself trying to do the best that I can do in my classes, but once I see someone else doing a little better than me, I don't find myself trying to outpace the other. I have learned to accept my breaking point and I don't think I have tried to step out of those boundaries for a long time. It does make me feel a bit glum but what else can I do? If I can't learn to participate in the competition at school, how am I to survive the competition in my future career(s)? Does competition play a positive or negative role in your own career? Does success in your career originate from the common phrase, "survival of the fittest?" #career #success #competition #outrun

I believe you should take competition in a positive stride. Figure out your strengths and weaknesses and work on your weakness to minimize it. Competition helps you to be on your toes and you evolve as a good professional and human being. Just do what ever you like the best and excel in it. If you go by this attitude then sky is the limit.

Hi Karen! I am competitive. I like to compete. Love it when I win. My self worth or sense of who I am is not defined by my winning or losing. Any emotional attachments to external outcomes is referred by some as co-dependency. We are not what we do or what we have. Marianne Williamson, Mike Dooley and Mike Cease at you tube have some video's you might find interesting. Be competitive just minimize or eliminate the judgements, self criticisms and add more fun, enthusiasm passion and a curious sense of adventure. What others think of you is none of your business. Shift your focus to being more self accepting, hopeful, loving, generous, good-hearted to the wonderful gift that is YOU.

Thank you comment icon I'll remember this! Please know that you will be my incentive for the next time I participate in any type of competition. Thank you so much! Karen

Hi Karen!


The most important thing in life to remember is to always do your best and when on the job or on a task always remember to do your best that you can to help the group or organization achieve its goal. That will make you stand out on your own, and you will not have to be concerned about competition.
