Quote of the Day
It is not up to me whether I win or lose. Ultimately, this might not be my day. And it is that philosophy towards sports, something that I really truly live by. I am emotional. I want to win. I am hungry. I am a competitor. I have that fire. But deep down, I truly enjoy the art of competing so much more than the result.
You should learn from your competitor, but never copy. Copy and you die.
A competitor will find a way to win. Competitors take bad breaks and use them to drive themselves just that much harder. Quitters take bad breaks and use them as reasons to give up. It's all a matter of pride.
I mean, as an athlete, as a competitor, you have to have that belief in yourself.
The competitor to be feared is one who never bothers about you at all, but goes on making his own business better all the time.
Once you create a loyal customer base, it's tough for a competitor to take that away.
It is piracy, not overt online music stores, which is our main competitor.
I just always expect the best because I'm a competitor and if I'm competing, then obviously I'm trying to be better in everything.
Customer expectations? Nonsense. No customer ever asked for the electric light, the pneumatic tire, the VCR, or the CD. All customer expectations are only what you and your competitor have led him to expect. He knows nothing else.
W. Edwards Deming
There's no better friend to any merchant than a fair competitor.
James Cash Penney
If you didn't have patents, no one would bother to spend money on research and development. But with patents, if someone has a good idea and a competitor can't copy it, then that competitor will have to think of their own way of doing it. So then, instead of just one innovator, you have two or three people trying to do something in a new way.
If you're competitor-focused, you have to wait until there is a competitor doing something. Being customer-focused allows you to be more pioneering.
Concentrate your strengths against your competitor's relative weaknesses.
I was born in Africa. I came to California because it's really where new technologies can be brought to fruition, and I don't see a viable competitor.
I think that if writers are tempted to do other things, they ought to go do other things. They should not write if they don't feel like it. I say this as a competitor. I am not interested in encouraging people who are in competition with me.
I am someone that is very competitive. When I'm on the field, I compete. When I'm practicing, when I'm in meetings. I'm a competitor in everything.
I'm a competitor and a very proud man. If a guy beats me once, he'll have to do it again to make me believe him.
Sugar Ray Leonard
If you're not a competitor, you've just got to go home.
Oracle, for example, has even hired people to dumpster dive for information about its competitor, Microsoft. It's not even illegal, because trash isn't covered by data secrecy laws.
I was a world champion on the trampoline at an international level, and gymnastics competitor.
Geopolitical drama lessened but did not die after the Cold War; in 2008, the specter of thousands of seeming automatons banging drums at the opening of the Beijing Games frightened and enthralled the world, reminding us that China was a nation on the rise, a competitor for global dominance.
I am so happy and proud to learn of Hideo Nomo's election to the Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame. He was quite a pitcher and competitor, but he is also a very special and caring person.
If you got anything to you at all as an athlete and a competitor, you don't care what the circumstances are. You still got competition.
My mom says I'm a fighter, a fierce competitor, and I think I am, too.
When I started running, the pain barrier was very familiar to me, and I had no problem pushing beyond the pain. When for your whole life, every single workout, you are programmed to push beyond belief, it's really hard to just turn that off and kind of just be a social competitor.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
