Competition Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Competition

1.
You find that you have peace of mind and can enjoy yourself, get more sleep, and rest when you know that it was a one hundred percent effort that you gave -- win or lose.
Howe, Gordie

2.
I consider myself one of a very small handful of drivers in the world that are top drivers. The best one? I don't think anybody can say they're the best one because, from one week to the next, you can be on form or off form a little bit.
Mansell, Nigel

3.
Man is a gaming animal. He must always be trying to get the better in something or other.
Lamb, Charles

4.
You must not fight too often with one enemy, or you will teach him all your tricks of war.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

5.
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.
Hamill, Dorothy

6.
And what is the greatest number? Number one.
Hume, David

7.
One cannot play chess if one becomes aware of the pieces as living souls and of the fact that the Whites and the Blacks have more in common with each other than with the players. Suddenly one loses all interest in who will be champion.
Rapoport, Anatol

8.
Becoming number one is easier than remaining number one.
Bradley, Bill

9.
Once you're physically capable of winning a gold medal, the rest is ninety percent mental.
Johnson, Patti

Campbell, Earl

12.
Everybody pulls for David, nobody roots for Goliath.
Chamberlain, Wilt

13.
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.
Lopez, Nancy

14.
Racing is a matter of spirit not strength.
Guthrie, Janet

15.
Playing safe is only playing.
Olson, Chuck

16.
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.
Crist, Reggie

17.
Our life is not really a mutual helpfulness; but rather, it's fair competition cloaked under due laws of war; it's a mutual hostility.
Carlyle, Thomas

18.
Strive mightily, but eat and drink as friends.
Shakespeare, William

19.
Show me a guy who is afraid to look bad, and I'll show you a guy you can beat every time.
Brock, Lou

20.
This is a tough game. There are times when you've got to play hurt, when you've got to block out the pain.
O'Neal, Shaquille

21.
You have to defeat a great players aura more than his game.
Riley, Pat

22.

Hogan, Ben

25.
I believe in rules. Sure I do. If there weren't any rules, how could you break them?
Durocher, Leo

26.
The time your game is most vulnerable is when you're ahead, never let up.
Laver, Rod

27.
In this game, by trying to win; you automatically lose.
Ross, Ruth

28.
A horse never runs so fast as when he has other horses to catch up and outpace.
Ovid

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

Alexander, Barbara J.

31.
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.
Sheehan, Patty
