A competitor is driven by the endless passion to win. Competitors typically spend their resources and capabilities to causes that would help them achieve results. Competitors are talented, because they realize that the fight to be the best requires skill. They are enthusiastic about life, but they are fulfilled when they outperform results or a group. And consequently, their main motivation is placing first. Typically, there is a positive correlation with their production of hard work and their level of competition.
Nevertheless, competitors may often be to consume with winning, that they often misplace their frustrations on others. And more often than not, they do it blindly, as they intend no harm; they are very instinctive. And when they find a win, they will continue to the next phase of a process, and search for another victory. They will not celebrate wins and/or successes as they should, and that makes them very tough.
To be a leader, you must be a competitor. But, the best leader takes time to celebrate, select work environments that embrace the good elements of competition, and reminds them that not everyone is made the same in a specific system or group. Therefore, they sagaciously utilize people’s strength and welcome them to succeed in their own nature, to ultimately win and accomplish personal and group objectives.
