Best Quotes about Competition
And what is the greatest number? Number one.
No wise combatant underestimates their antagonist.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The ability to learn faster than your competitors may be the only sustainable competitive advantage.
Geus, Arie de
In this game, by trying to win; you automatically lose.
Competition is a process or variety of habitual behavior that grows out of a habit of mind.
Men often compete with one another until the day they die; comradeship consists of rubbing shoulders jocularly with a competitor.
Win or lose, do it fairly.
To free the mind from the habit of competition, we must see in detail the process by which the mind is ensnared by competition.
There is nothing noble in being superior to some other person. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.
Becoming number one is easier than remaining number one.
There are two kinds of people: Those who do the work and those who take the credit. Try to be in the first group because there is less competition there.
I worked very hard. I felt I could play the game. The only thing that could stop me was myself.
We have a lot of players in their first year. Some of them are also in their last year.
The Law of Win Win says, Let's not do it your way or my way; let's do it the best way.
Somebody will always break your records. It is how you live that counts.
I love the winning, I can take the losing, but most of all I Love to play.
What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight; it's the size of the fight in the dog.
Eisenhower, Dwight D.
Enjoy the successes that you have, and don't be too hard on yourself when you don't do well. Too many times we beat up on ourselves. Just relax and enjoy it.
You must sacrifice, train, do everything possible to put yourself in a position to win. But if you consider second or third a failure, I feel sorry for you.
These are the days when it takes all you've got just to keep up with the losers.
My hat's in the ring. The fight is on and I'm stripped to the buff.
How can we hope to remain economically competitive in a world in which... 90% of Dutch high-school students take advanced math courses and 100% of teachers in Germany have double majors, while the best we can say about our pocket of excellence is that 75% of [American] students have learned to critique tactfully?
Alexander, Barbara J.
The medals don't mean anything and the glory doesn't last. It's all about your happiness. The rewards are going to come, but my happiness is just loving the sport and having fun performing.
Kersee, Jackie Joyner
I ski to win. When the day comes that I can't get myself into a fighting mood anymore, I won't be able to win and I'll stop racing.
I believe in rules. Sure I do. If there weren't any rules, how could you break them?
I won it, at least five million times. Men who were stronger, bigger and faster than I was could have done it, but they never picked up a pole, and never made the feeble effort to pick their legs off the ground and get over the bar.
How can they beat me? I've been struck by lightning, had two back operations, and been divorced twice.
A competitor will find a way to win. Competitors take bad breaks and use them to drive themselves just that much harder. Quitters take bad breaks and use them as reasons to give up. It's all a matter of pride.
Strive mightily, but eat and drink as friends.
For when the One Great Scorer comes to mark against your name, He writes -- not that you won or lost -- but how you played the Game.
You have to defeat a great players aura more than his game.
Don't look back. Something might be gaining on you.
Paige, Leroy ''Satchel''
Focus on competition has always been a formula for mediocrity.
It's amazing how much of this is mental. Everybody's in good shape. Everybody knows how to ski. Everybody has good equipment. When it really boils down to it, it's who wants it the most, and who's the most confident on his skis.
A horse never runs so fast as when he has other horses to catch up and outpace.
What it comes down to is that anybody can win with the best horse. What makes you good is if you can take the second or third-best horse and win.
Every man in the world is better than someone else and not as good someone else.
If you make every game a life and death proposition, you're going to have problems. For one thing, you'll be dead a lot.
Man is a gaming animal. He must always be trying to get the better in something or other.
When you have them by the balls, their hearts and minds will follow.
Every time you go out on the ice, there are slight flaws. You can always think of something you should have done better. These are the things you must work on.
The difference of great players is at a certain point in a match they raise their level of play and maintain it. Lesser players play great for a set, but then less.
It has meant a lot to me to challenge the best players in the world and to beat them. And it means a lot to me to be out here and fighting for the title and, you know, it hurts not to win it.
Most games are lost, not won.
Running for money doesn't make you run fast. It makes you run first.
Surely the best way to meet the enemy is head on in the field and not wait till they plunder our very homes.
You get out in front -- you stay out in front.
Foyt, A. J.
You must not fight too often with one enemy, or you will teach him all your tricks of war.
Competition is the whetstone of talent.
I don't psyche myself up. I psyche myself down. I think clearer when I'm not psyched up.
