Is Competition Good or Bad ?

The other day, reminiscing my life, mistakes, progress and new developments, COMPETITION came in mind. We normally make statements like, “I’m not in competition with anyone” but yet we constantly compare ourselves with others. Honestly, thinking about it, there is really nothing wrong with that in my opinion. It all boils down to what exactly you are comparing. We like to detect discrepancies between ourselves and others so that we can keep track of how we are doing in terms of achieving something or developing a particular skill.
