One quote that defines who I am would be, A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others by Ayn Rand. This quote defines who I am because the person that I have become is motivated by the will that I can achieve anything if I put my mind to it. If theres a will, theres a way. I dont have to have the desire to beat others when it comes down to work. Everyone journey isnt the same; therefore, why compete against someone who has a different journey? There is a desire in many people to prove their worth to others. If you are talented and want to build upon that, you should focus on your skills and hone them so that you can reach your goals. If you are more keen on getting ahead of others, you will never be focused on your goals because you attention is diverted elsewhere. Your desire to achieve something is your personal goal. If you are serious about achieving your goal, competition will not deter you. Your success is not dependent on others failures. If you are more motivated by the desire to beat others, it means that you are not sincere about your goals. It shows that you do not have confidence and faith in yourself.
