Competition is a contest between organisms for a limited resource. The resource could be money, fame, clients, likes, retweets, or championships. In my world my competition is none. The great Eric B and Rakim once said “No time for fun, cuz I don’t play with competitors. Its only one when Im done! The competition is NONE!” You see the only competitor that you have any control over is you! Everyday you battle to do the right thing and exist in the best way possible. Problem is that most people look outside themselves and attack their competition and are blind to their own strengths and weaknesses.
One of the most profound quotes I have heard on this topic is “Blowing out someone else’s candle will not make your candle burn brighter.”
Competition comes from the ego. This can be a dangerous mindset if it means taking down others to create an environment that you can succeed in. We need safe havens in which you can express your competitive spirit and express your ego. That is why we have sports! You can dominate and compete and when the whistle blows, you can shake hands and congratulate your competitor. This and so much more in this episode of the #CoachGlassPodcast!
