Welcome to this edition of the Weekly Circle—where we start the week with a few ideas that make us think.
This week, we’re thinking about Competition. The former monk and influencer, Jay Shetty, put it well:
Your biggest competition is not around you, it's inside you. It's complacency.
Competition comes from the Latin word competere, which means "to strive together". We have to work with others to push ourselves to grow. But distilling this further down, the real difference in your own growth arises from competing with yourself -- from within. Set the terms and the pace of your own growth.
We'd love to hear from you!
How do you feel about the nature of 'competition'? Is it cool? Does it make you work harder? Or does it drain your energy and focus?
