Can you be competitive in a healthy way?  Yes, and in this item, business life coach John M McKee provides some insight into the best way to do it.

Fitness counts.

Yes, I know you’ve heard that one before.  Yet, most of us don’t spend much time or energy getting fit.

It makes us better at work and at play.  We live longer and better.

I’m always amazed at how little physical activity some people do – shortening their life and reducing their enjoyment while their here.

Do you do yoga?  If not, consider adding it to your repertoire.

It will give you a more quiet mind, better body, and improve your disposition.  And, if you’re the kind of person who needs a “real workout” , give Bikram Yoga, some consideration.  It’s a kickass approach to gaining Zen while toning up and improving cardio.

And it’s non competitive.

That’s important.

When one is competitive with others, (s)he’s less likely to be satisfied with all she has already.  Dis-Satisfaction is a big hassle – it wrecks your sleep, can make you envious, and cause unhappiness.

Yoga -in either the traditional forms or in the kickass form – is all about doing your best and learning to be satisfied with improving at your own pace.  I once heard an instructor give this great advice:

“If you’re going to get competitive, at least stay on your own yoga mat.”

Compete with yourself.

  • It causes self reflection & can create self satisfaction.
  • It reduces the liklihood you’ll get envy or jealous at the same time.

I suggest you use this little life lesson in all that you do. And then share it with those you care about.

Here’s to your future.  It’s what you make of your life….

John
