Does the competitive spirit egg you on?A few sportspersons will break the record for the event even during some trials or domestic-level games. It is on the bigger arena, though, when there are national or international level competitors that you will see some kind of extraordinary surge that drives them to not only beat their rivals to the finish line but also make some world record perhaps. Is it that the highly charged competitive arena is what brings out the innate competitive spirit from within and sends the adrenaline pumping, with the urge to perform beyond than the usual?
Coming down to our own 'domestic' level event, namely, our recent forum challenge contest, was it that competitive spirit which urged you on? Perhaps you told yourself, 'Others are doing it, I can also do so and perform better'! There have been threads about the challenge contest in which participants have given their input, but in this thread I want to focus only on whether it was the competitive arena of many participants and the inner competitive spirit that sparked you, excited you and challenged you out of your comfort zone.
Also, if you've ever worked on a project, whether an individual one or in a team, the urge to do better than others (competing) must have pushed you to do not just your best, but likely even beyond your best.
