Instead, why not focus on getting better?
Doing things that are within your control?
Doing work that matters?
Being with people you care about?
Developing trust amongst your peers?
Contributing to your community?
Furthermore, does winning at all costs also mean cheating when necessary? Losing your integrity if called for? And risking your reputation if it means earning a medal?
It turns out, there are probably a lot more costs to winning than you think.
