Competitiveness is the positive force that keeps pushing us upward. It's the competitive spirit that keeps raising our expectations & helps us attain & achieve more. It makes us innovate, come up with better designs, perform better research, live improved quality of life and stuff.
But competitiveness can become a vice too. Negative competition, as it is called, can lead to jealousy, envy, enmity and hatred.
" Replace competition with collaboration & cooperation "
Negativism spoils competition when the compelling reason for the competition is a but a selfish motive.
If our real motive as doctors is to ensure better patient care, why should we be too much obsessed with personal success in terms of more abstract knowledge or more recognition or more money?
Let's join hands with others in making this world a better place to live. Success soon shall surrender itself at thy feet. You'd have won many hearts' reverence when you leave this Earth.
Have a nice day !
