It’s the competition
And you’ve already won
The competition lasts but moments
Though the training’s taken years
It wasn’t the winning alone
That was worth the work and tears
The applause will be forgotten
The prize will be misplaced
But the long hard hours of practice
Will never be a waste
For in trying to win you build a skill
You learn that winning depends on will
You never grow by how much you win
You only grow by how much you put in
So any challenge you’ve just begun
Put forth your best effort.
-- William F. Halsey

-- Paul NewmanWhen I go out on the ice, I just think about my skating. I forget it is a competition.
-- Katarina Witt
With competition there is always ego and hubris... competition gets in the way of work.
