My mentality................pure and simple


I will always be someone who wants to do better than others...who wants to be better than others....I thrive on competition....and being able to look back at a beaten opposition.....and say..."No..you arent as good as me"

Its a sportsmans attitude...and having been fortunate enough to represent my country at 2 different sports I can honestly say its the only attitude....Encourage kids to compete...but encourage them to do their utmost to try and win within the rules (of course) - If you are happy to settle for second best...you'll be just that...second best

Just competing is all well and good....but you never remember the runner up or the gallant loser...In 10 years time..who will remember the runner up in the just finished USPGA golf championship......Probably no one...or a handful

They'll remember the winner though.....the person who wanted it more,wanted to be better,proved he was better yet again and looked back imperiously at a beaten opposition and said

"Im Tiger Woods.........."

First is first...second is f*cking nowhere

I'm the best person in the whole universe hating competition.
And if i was second or last, I couldn't care less.
Pierre de Coubertin who reinstated the Olympic Games in the late 19th century said "Winning doesn't matter, participating does!", well to be honest i haven't even been watching.
However I think it is a good thing having a good balance of competitive and non competitive people, by working together they should make the world a better place.
What I'd like is to see more compassion in some competitive people or organisations.
What I'd love is people to live harmoniously and being respectful of each others' positions and weaknesses.
Take care.
