If you want to find the real competition, just look in the mirror. After a while you’ll see your rivals scrambling for second place ― Criss Jami
In this world of enterprise organizations, every single person seems to have a competition of a different kind. Competition is good, but if you are always thinking what competition is going to do to you – well you are starting on a wrong foot. Competition is out there to keep your foot in the ground. If you get carried away and close your eyes to what happens around you – you are surely going to be grounded for ever.
Never compete with someone who has nothing to lose ― Baltasar Gracián
Competition brings out the best in products and the worst in people ― David Sarnoff
I am not sure how many can understand this concept. If you ever got a chance to watch the movie Cars, you will get the picture I show above. It is always not about winning, it is about knowing the strengths of your competition, it is about playing to your strengths, it is about planning a strategy to your execution and not dancing to the tune of what the competition does.
While most are dreaming of success, winners wake-up and work hard to achieve it.
Do let me know if this makes sense. Are there other anecdotes that comes to your mind and if possible can you share some?
