COMPETITION IS THE DRIVE-THE STIMULUS-THAT CAUSES MAN TO USE ALL OF HIS PHYSICAL, MENTAL, EMOTIONAL, ETHICAL, AND MORAL ABILITIES TO TRY TO OVERCOME LIFE'S CHALLENGES. Man's will and need to compete is a human drive-just as important as the drives of survival and self preservation, hunger and thirst, procreation and reproduction, and security. If we don't compete in all areas of our lives, we won't survive physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Our need and will to compete goes to the heart of everything we do in life. Competition is the catalyst that unleashes all of our energies (physical, mental, emotional, ethical and moral) to face life's challenges. Today, too many people are "soft" and do not want to subject themselves to the risks of competing. It is hoped that by understanding the concepts of competition, all people, young and old alike, will be able to strive for a better and more fulfilling life for the benefit of themselves, their communities, and our country. This book is written in such a way that people as young as 12 years old could read, understand, and begin to compete. Likewise, young adults, mid-aged persons, and senior citizens can benefit from the thoughts contained in this book. All should read and begin to more
