Yes! I believe there is such a thing as healthy competition.
As creatives we are the product before anything else we create, we must brand ourselves.
Outside competition can work as a point of reference. Inside competition, as a source of intrinsic motivation.
Here are 7 ways in which we can develop our skills for healthy competition:
- Focus on You
- Do better, Be better
- Relax, learn, have fun
- Focus on personal wins/milestones
- Stop the cycle of comparisons
- Practice Self-compassion and Kindness
- Do not take things at face value, look deeper
The best competitors are those humble enough to accept their failed attempts, improve and try again, without putting anyone down, including themselves.
