Can You Be TOO Competitive

This is a question that may have many different subjective answers, depending on your perspective, but the answer you have for yourself is important to your success (or failure)…

Winning at all costs may not necessarily be the best way forward. It has been shown time and again that without some kind of moral framework, people will do great damage to themselves and to others… 

A certain amount of drive and desire to succeed is important and helpful. If your drive to win means that you cheat to attain your objectives, then that may be going too far…

You are not going to win all the time, and winning is not everything. It is a nice feeling, but fleeting….You win and are at the top of the hill….

As soon you take that hill you become the target, as you targeted whoever was there before you. Better to realize this, savor the victories and realize that they are not everything…

More so, in my opinion, it is playing the game, how you play it, and knowing that you will do your best, even if you fail that will give you that satisfaction about what you are doing…

So how will this affect what you do in the online marketing segment? Good question….Let’s look at some options…

Possible Affects For Your Online Marketing Business

If you have a reasonable level of competitiveness in you, it will keep you sharp, focused, motivated, and driven – to a degree…Here are some pros if you can find a good balance…

Pros

As mentioned in the introduction to this section above, you have to have some kind of drive to do online marketing. Often you are on your own in your home…No one is watching your actions, your planning, and execution, nor your results…

If you see others having success and you want to meet or outperform some them, that can be a good thing. If you set your mind to this and work fastidiously, track your progress as you compete against others in your market niche, it can be a positive for you…

Cons

If you go too far in your quest to win, many times you will make decisions and take actions that will potentially hurt others in the name of winning. You may cut corners, be “just a little (or more) dishonest, and act unethically.

In the short term,you may very well have some successes…Many do…But also, many that push the envelope or the norm too much wander into the unethical territory. You win to lose at the end of the day…

Try Out My Solution To Discover Balance

Personally, I think striking a balance is the key. Keep the drive to succeed within the boundaries of ethical behavior and you will be fine. There is a wide field of play available to you even when you practice your life and business in this manner…

A little empathy and openness to listening will go a long way towards you creating a business that is attuned to what the market wants and needs, striving for success while still have a concern for those around you…

I have some training available for you that may help you determine for yourself the correct route to plan for and follow in your business and personal lives…

CONCLUSION

Being competitive is an attribute that can help you and hurt you depending on the degree of influence it plays in your life. Generally, your personal character comes out in your professional activities, so this subject covers both sides of your life…

Today we looked at a popular video that depicts some cases where competitiveness can actually be a bit much. The one that is overly competitive may not even realize it…

This is why it may be a good idea to do a self-evaluation of your mannerisms and behaviors, and make adjustment as indicated. his can increase your success through healthier relationships with peers, clients, and significant others…

This is a lighter side post, but none-the-less do not underestimate the lesson that lies beneath the subject of competitiveness…   Too little and you are a sloth, too much and you are a boorish person…

Figure out the right mix and you can tap into the power of the trait without making everyone around you angry…

Best of luck and great success for you today and every day!!
