Competition is a very funny thing. It has the ability to shift mentalities, embrace change, and push your work ethic. In fact, your work ethic is the only thing you have absolute control over. Nothing else. It requires sacrificing your energy and time to be your best self, thus giving you more tools to compete. Unfortunately, competition can also show a different side. The importance of competing and staying relevant sometimes forces us to make rash decisions, disregarding how it affects the people around us. It resembles taking performance enhancing drugs in sports or using insider trading information on the Wall Street trading floor. Competition should always reflect a positive outcome, not one that causes disbelief.
