[vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″ id=”” class=”post-content” style=””][text_output]We may not know it but we have been trained to compete. Sibling rivalry happens when a child suddenly gets another person who competes for their parent’s attention, so, it’s in our nature. On top of that, we reward the kids who do well so every child wants to be the best and get the most.

Our school system is structured that way as well. Students who excel will have their pictures on the notice board and the ones who don’t become, “nobody”. Even in the cartoons that kids watch, the good people are good looking and the bad guys are ugly. Who wants to be ugly? Everybody now instinctively tries to be ahead of and prettier than the others.

In companies too, good performance is rewarded with bonuses and under performance can lead to dismissal. But, does this approach really work? The results of a study done at MIT contradicts this idea. Their conclusion; if it is just manual skills then yes, it can work, but if thinking is involved then the incentive causes the opposite effect.

People perform better when they have a purpose. In a company, the very word “company” implies working together for a common goal, not against each other. When my desire to succeed becomes the primary concern then the company will suffer as a result. What we need in life is a purpose. The best doctors care about healing sick people, not money.

The things that bring us the greatest happiness are usually the ones that have no immediate personal benefit. The world, my family, my workplace, and my school are all places where competition mode will make everyone miserable. These people aren’t enemies or competition. They are partners along the road of life.

Let’s drop the competitiveness and work together. You’ll be happier and less stressed once you do![/text_output][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][vc_raw_html]JTNDc3R5bGUlM0UlMEEuZW50cnktdGh1bWIlMjBpbWclMjAlN0IlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjBtYXgtaGVpZ2h0JTNBJTIwNDAwcHglM0IlMEElN0QlMEElMEEucG9zdC1jb250ZW50JTIwJTdCJTBBJTIwJTIwJTIwJTIwdGV4dC1hbGlnbiUzQSUyMGp1c3RpZnklM0IlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjB0ZXh0LWp1c3RpZnklM0ElMjBpbnRlci13b3JkJTNCJTBBJTdEJTBBJTNDJTJGc3R5bGUlM0U=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row]
