In this week’s episode, Bev and Marina discuss the pros and cons of being competitive. Bev was competitive as a teen and into her twenties, but is much less so these days (except when it comes to netball); Marina has never been the competitive type, and was happy to sit back and watch the sports teams in her school days, rather than partake.
Whereabouts do you sit on the sliding scale between fiercely competitive and couldn’t-care-less-about-winning? Were you competitive as a child but not so much as an adult, or perhaps it's the other way around? Topics of discussion include whether certain people in our lives make us feel more competitive than others, whether kids today are less competitive than we were, Bev’s uber-competitive ex-husband, and the attitude of some England fans following their loss at the final of the Euros.
When it comes to making life As Good As It Gets, we should of course feel passionate about our goals and achieving success in the things that mean the most to us; but isn't it equally important not to invest too much in our results so that losing doesn’t have to mean everything? Whilst a bit of healthy competition isn't necessarily a bad thing, we need to be able to lose graciously if we want to stay happy.
