Everyone likes to feel successful in their ventures, but sometimes people take it to the extreme by needing to be the best or the winner in every situation. While it’s a great quality to always put forth your best effort, being overly competitive can cause stress and tension. It can even hinder your future success and accomplishments. Rather than succumb to these unhealthy emotions consider these methods to help you overcome your competitive nature, and instead learn to be at ease and enjoy what you have.
Celebrate the Accomplishments of Others
It may seem counter-intuitive to combat feelings of competitiveness by celebrating others accomplishments, however it’s the perfect antidote. There is a power that comes with being happy for others. When you root for and cheer on your peers, you are attracting the same energy. The support that you give to others will circle back to you and you will be better off because of it.
