I Don't Need to Compete With You

(Unless We're Playing a Fun Game) 210 People

    Work Only

    I haven't ever really thought that I needed to compete with anyone.I do think that competition can be a good thing though. It can push you to do you're best and work harder so you'll get a better result out of something. So in a work sense competing with someone can be a positive...

    No Need To Compete

    I dislike competition and therefore I can never compete with anyone.  I believe, competition is an act of jealousy.

    And I'm Not Going To.

    A very wise man once said: "But let each one prove what his own work is, and then he will have cause for exultation in regard to himself alone and not in comparison with the other person.: Galatians 6:4 (Apostle Paul). This isn't a competition and it doesn't matter to me what...

    A Taoist View

    Well, apart from learning by experience that competition leads to exhaustion, jealousy, resentment and so on, it is good to draw inspiration from past generations. The Tao Te Ching and the related writings of early taoists (Zhuang Zi, Lie Zi) illustrate with suggestive examples...

    What's the Point?

    I don't see the point in competing with others... unless it's a cool game, like my pal Philip and I have going on, "Gift Wars"! LoL! I swear, I will out-gift you, Philip! Muh-ha-ha-ha-ha! XD But I see no gain in trying to out-do someone in anything else... I've...

    Why? Just Why?

    Okay. The life of an Asian student is never easy, because we have Asian parents. In my honest opinion, most of the older generations in Asia have OCD, because they get that insane drive to compete with each other, just for the sake of competing. There is something ****** up...

    Life Is Not Zero-sum

    I Don't Mind Healthy Competition

    ...but I don't need to compete for competition's sake.  I think it's great to have a certain amount of competition in academia and the arts, but ultimately, I don't care who is smarter or prettier or richer or poorer than I am.  I can't say that I have never wasted my...

    That Would Be Pretty Dumb

    If you want to "win" that bad at something then perhaps I would just let you because I don't have any worries or hang ups.
