The Natural Human Drive to Compete

A Quick Tip by woopak_the_thrill

  • Nov 3, 2010
The appreciation of Competition (or the need to compete)  is the same as any other human trait and nature; it needs to be wielded with responsibility. It can be healthy and has its advantages, but using it without responsibility can only become a means to feed one's ebbing ego. There will always be someone better than you, so one has to accept improvement. The best way to improve oneself by use of competition is by competing with yourself and try to improve yourself for the better. Competing against someone else without a clearly declared contest only promotes tension and proves that someone perhaps is just jealous.

Competition and Competing. It is a wonder how two words that appear and sound so similar can mean VERY different things. Competition for improvement is healthy. Competition to attain pride and recognition is also good. Competition because of jealousy is dumb. Competing to get attention and the need to be admired is even dumber.  Learn to believe in yourself without competing with another person, it is the proper way to achieve success! Do it for yourself!

I rate competition a 7 out of 10 stars!

I think competition is great! It is the way civilization advances and mankind improves. Trouble emerges when one does it for vanity, insecurity or with unfair means and unethical ways!

Humans are conditioned to compete from young in most society. Generally, some competes for recognition, for vanity, for improvement, for monetary rewards, for all kind of reasons under the sun. Competition is not bad per se; problem arises when people compete unfairly or unethically. Under controlled condition, competition is beneficial to mankind.
