Competition does not motivate me
I desire no opponent
I crave no rivalry
I am a pleaser
Competition does not inspire me
Yet deep inside of me
I have to be the best
There's an intrinsic longing
to excell before I rest
Mediocrity is not acceptable
is not good enough for me
in sports it abounds
it brings out the adrenaline
a trophy or medal needs to be won
Thanks but no thanks
competition is not for me
I desire no contest
That is not the challenge I want
for the sake of doing best
That is what I am comfortable with
is not good enough for me.

i agree that doings ones best simply so that they areassured they have ,,, is the vest option.... i care not about winning,, but i do like knowing i did my best....
This was a great post, the one I have resonated the most with so far! Knowing that I do my best is what has always made me feel at my best!
what a wonderful view of competition..for me, the best test is can we rest in his perfection...
The very best kind of competition!
You could have been describing my daughter as well as yourself! Great post.
Always striving to do one's best is, in fact, an internal competition.
Enjoyed the poem... ;)
I definitely compete much more with myself than I do with anyone else. I now see perfectionist tendencies in my children and am working hard to temper them and help them give themselves permission to err.
Doing one's best is a good thing - particularly if one is in charge of deciding when that best is good enough. :) Great post!
good enough aint good enough - how true...esp. when one is competing against one-self, loved this idea of competition - Thank you.
One has to do best. Doing is VERY important.
Yes, it is within us, our need to excel, that fuels our fire.
Nice subtle rhyme in here! I like it!
I feel competive of your noncompetiveness - LOL. Clearly I have a long way to go on that front!
What a great take...
And yes Good enough is not good enough for me too..
I agree what we do , we need to do it the best..
