The ultimate victory in competition is derived from the inner satisfaction of knowing that you have done your best and that you have gotten the most out of what you had to give.
- Howard Cosell
I’m an ambitious person. I never consider myself in competition with anyone, and I’m not saying that from an arrogant standpoint, it’s just that my journey started so, so long ago, and I’m still on it and I won’t stand still.
- Idris Elba
The biggest competition is myself. I am not looking to follow others or pull them down. I’m planning to test my own boundaries.
A successful competition for me is always going out there and putting 100 percent into whatever I’m doing. It’s not always winning. People, I think, mistake that it’s just winning. Sometimes it could be, but for me, it’s hitting the best sets I can, gaining confidence, and having a good time and having fun.
- Simone Biles
There’s a theory that says that life is based on a competition and the struggle and the fight for survival, and it’s interesting because when you look at the fractal character of evolution, it’s totally different. It’s based on cooperation among the elements in the geometry and not competition.

I enjoy competition. I enjoy challenges. If a challenge is in front of me and it appeals to me, I will go ahead and conquer it.

Competition is the keen cutting edge of business, always shaving away at costs.
- Henry Ford
The healthiest competition occurs when average people win by putting above average effort.

But so many women take it a step further and won’t even support other women. They end up competing over things that don’t make sense – like how we look.
- Lilly Singh
Having no competition is a bad thing. Competition makes you try to improve yourself all the time.
- Shu Qi
Live daringly, boldly, fearlessly. Taste the relish to be found in competition – in having put forth the best within you.
- Henry J. Kaiser
Believing that your competition is stronger and better than you pushes you to better yourselves.
- Simon Sinek
I’m forever testing myself. As a person and as an actor, I have no sense of competition.
- Michael Caine
