This thought came to me in the night: If you retreat & don’t compete to delete self-imposed defeat, life will beat you and leave you incomplete.
“I love to compete. There is always someone trying to beat me.” –Mark Cuban
“Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.” –Paul of Tarsus
“The important thing in life is not to triumph but to compete.” –Pierre de Coubertin
“While it’s important to win, it’s imperative to compete.” –David Weinbaum
“You don’t have to be a fantastic hero to do certain things – to compete. You can be just an ordinary chap, sufficiently motivated.” –Edmund Hillary
