Competitive Mindset

Competition is one of the greatest attributes to being a successful person whether it involves sports or competing in a work place. Everyone wants to be the best at what they do and if you want to be the best, you have to beat the best. You beat the best by work ethic and effort you put into your specific job. Robert Tyre Jones Jr. an amateur golfer states, “I always thought competition was about beating someone. I finally realized that someone was ME” You have to focus on your own ability rather than your opponent. If you have the right mindset before the competition, you have a greater chance at being successful and reaching your goals. Here are some competitive mindsets that are very important to acknowledge.
