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.
I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.
— The Dalai Lama (via lazyyogi)
The most important point is to accept yourself and stand on your two feet.
