Competition Win or Lose. Relationship expert author Dr. Molly Barrow

How do you react to competition? Do you need the trophy? Often when we are judged by others, a recognition or monetary prize is the reward. Sometimes when we give our very best effort, the competition may still do a better job. Perhaps they are more experienced, more talented, more attractive, or just have natural abilities. What is important is how you react to finishing second. Some people take their game and go home. They quit, give up because they are beaten. Perfectionism that requires you to be number one or not play at all insures that you will eventually lose everything to another stronger player. If pleasing others is your motivation than only one can win and the rest will lose.

Whereas other competitive people are energised by a defeat, determined to observe, learn, practice and be better. When the process of becoming a top contender and excellent at what you do is your reward than how can you ever lose? This seems the smarter and more pleasurable way to win.
