Hi Tony, Herb here. I like the question. In my case it has caused a thought or two because I play Bridge and dable at chess. In bridge, especially in duplicate it is very competatvie, in fact it is very cut throat. So I just play friendly bridge and in chess it is no contest, I won't win. Thanks, Herb

Hi to you too Herb. I appreciate your comment. Thank you!

The way I would approach competitive sports with the creative mindset is to only "compete" with myself to perform in the best, most creative way possible and make the fewest mistakes possible and have a clear vision of what it would take to do this. Your approach is not to beat someone but to be the best you can be. Inspiring your teammates to do the same if it's a group sport could be very empowering.

Good day Tony, this is Veli here.The reader's "Competition in Sport".I accept your reply as most appropriate although to my opinion not expansive enough. My understanding of Wallace D.Wattles'philosophy in this regard is not about competition for a genuine living (which the sports codes mentioned are about)but only for what ones doesn't actually Need but Want to proof a point which is not necessary.You want to be better than everybody.This attitude to my opinion is the results of an inherent selfish and cruel mental condition.

@Rich Mantoan: Thanks for your comment. Much appreciated!

@Veli J.Mmatladi: Good day to you as well Veli. If I understand your point correctly, which I may not, quite the opposite is true. Mr. Wattles was referring to what you do for a living when it comes to competition. Thanks for your comment!
