Some people don't want to compete, you will notice these people everywhere everyday you just have to look around. You will see these people at their job, they are the ones who just sit there looking uninterested in life or anything else because they have settled for what they have and don't want to compete for a better existence, a better job, a better mindset because it is too hard for them, they just want to lay down and take whatever shit life throws at them. That is not what you want to be in life!
Now, as much as competing with people for what you want in life is a good thing, the biggest competition you will ever face in life is YOU! ( watch this weeks motivation video " VERSUS 2010 Trailer ). It is you who decides what happens in your life when it is all said and done, not your boss or your parents or spouse but you! There are no second chances, no reset button; you have to seize your opportunities as and when you see them because if you do all the hard work and don't take them then someone else will take your prize.
So when you get a chance for something you want in life be ruthless and go to war for it and take it! Do not let anybody stand in your way ever again. No more Mr nice guy, no more "oh they deserve that promotion more than me". I don't want to hear that shit, because you deserve everything you want to get out of life but you must be willing to work hard and compete every step of the way.
Fly your own flag
