Why Competition Should Be More About Yourself Than Other People

"Compete everyday to see how far you can take the thing that you're most interested in."

We tend to define competition as striving to be better than someone else, but it may be time to redefine the word.

It should be about "striving for your best," rather than "trying to beat someone," according to Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll and Dr. Michael Gervais, a high performance psychologist. And they should know -- the pair co-founded the Win Forever consulting business that coaches people how to reach their highest potential.

In the video above, Carroll and Gervais discuss how they conceptualize competition and how it essentially means to "relentlessly work."
