Q – Competition with Others? Or personal growth and team work?

Q – Competition with Others? Or personal growth and team work?

Yesterday, I wrote a story about two guys who were frenemies and it ended badly. Because they were taught to be rivals, rather than act as team members. Or achieve to improve themselves.

I think promoting rivalry in sports and games tends to encourage jealousy and frustration. And is counter to good sportsmanship and team work. Especially with children.

I think your best competitor in life is who you were yesterday and who you want to be tomorrow.

But there may be some variance in that, due to the fact that not everyone has an internal locus of control. Some people need the “other” to motivate them. And i’m not sure how that could be mitigated to lessen rivalry.

I think this discussion is applicable to D/s, M/s relations and might be applicable to poly-cues as well. What do you think?
