Learn Through Competition

I've recently started to remember why I'm not a fan of competition as I was involved in something where I was required to compete against other people. There's nothing as frustrating to me as when I give my very best at something and loose - I swear, I feel like hitting things, I get mad...

It's not the competition itself that I don't like but who I become while I compete. You learn a lot about yourself through competition … especially when you loose.

"How you think when you lose determines how long it will be until you win."
-Gilbert K. Chesterton

My behavior, when I loose, is comparable to a baby that throws a tantrum when he doesn't get what he wants and if I want to leave any sort of a positive mark in this life it's a behavior that I absolutely need to improve on.

"Losing isn't the ending, indeed it's the best beginning towards success..."

It is said that George St-Pierre would look for a lost in every win and a win in every lost. After every match he would go over it with his coach to see what he could of done better. Through this method, GSP became one of the best UFC athlete. 
I fully intend to use this method to win at whatever I decide to compete in going forward. If something is worth doing then it's worth doing right.
