Gold & Sterling

If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.

— Mr. Rogers (via lazyyogi)

Everything we do has a very primal base to it, even this idea of competition. And I don’t deny that it is in me, and i don’t believe that anybody is free of that…

it is possible to really like competing against somebody that you don’t like. You like them for what they are giving you, which is a test that takes you to the limits of your talent.

Trying the find the virtue in my competitiveness, and appreciate rather than antagonize those I compete with.
