The Power Of Competition 101
You Are Born To Be Competitive
There is absolutely nothing wrong with being competitive. The truth is, you were born that way. It is how you are wired.
Without a competitive drive, you would have no desire to succeed. You would have no eustress, (positive stress). Life would move along and you would have no desire to be a real part of it, follow it or anything of the sort.
You would be happy with whatever comes your way.
Competition Enables Action
Could you imagine life without a Michael Jordan, Usain Bolt, Mark Spitz or Sebastian Coe?
What about no Michael Jackson, Celine Dion or Jude Law?
And, without the competitive spirit of Kyle and Carson, you would have no Wealthy Affiliate (WA) to enjoy all the successes that are celebrated here every day.
You are here at WA because you are competitive and because you want to succeed. Whether it is more income, recognition, fame or being ranked #1 on Google, there is some amount of competitiveness in you that drives you to become a successful Digital Entrepreneur.
There is a dark and unhealthy side to the competitive spirit though and you should be careful to manage this aspect of its power as you climb the ladder of success.
