You can’t ignore the fact that the ‘competitive spirit’ is becoming more and more rare among men and women, both in this country and around the world. Not only is competitiveness in short supply, but many people even look down upon it, considering those who are competitive to be shallow, greedy and vain. However, here to explain why the world at large is not a zero sum game, and why truly competitive people are people who compete with themselves more than anyone is sports psychologist, motivational speaker and author of The MindSide Manifesto, Dr. Brett McCabe.
Dr. Brett McCabe had a long history in sports, and it was there, under the guidance of his coach and military father, that he learned to cultivate the inner drive for success. And from that point on it was only a matter of time before he got it, training professional golfers and writing best sellers.
With automation and globalization on the rise, it’s becoming difficult for many people to believe that they can utilize their individuality and make something of themselves in a world so crowded and seemingly governed by uncontrollable forces. Dr. McCabe, though, has spent years studying the human element behind achievement and has come to the realization that we alone are our own greatest resource, and an investment in oneself in the only way of unlocking our true potential.
