You Are Your Competition

June 25, 2021 - By Simon Sinek, American author on leadership, and motivational speaker.

COMMENT BY WENDY LAMBOURNE, LEGITIMATE LEADERSHIP, ON THIS VIDEO

Good leaders act on the dictum that “the world belongs to the happily discontented”. They make it their business to continually raise the bar or raise the standard. In doing so, they are practising ‘tough love’. They are challenging their people not to remain in their comfort zone or to accept the current is good enough”. Their goal is not to be better than the rest; their goal is to continually strive to be better than they were before.

OUR SUMMARY OF THIS VIDEO: Finite players set out to beat the people around them. Infinite players play to be better than themselves – to wake up every day and ask, ‘How can we make our company a better version of itself today than it was yesterday, how can we create a product this week that’s better than the product we created last week?’

It’s not about being ranked number one, about having more followers on Twitter than your friends, or outdoing anyone; it’s about how to outdo yourself.

It’s not about selling more books or getting more TED views than somebody else; it’s about how to make sure that the work that you’re producing is better than the work you produced before.

You are your competition and that is what ensures you stay in the game the longest. And that is what ensures you find joy, because joy comes not from comparison but from advancement
