The Really You!
Season 1 – Game 07
What is or who is The Really You? No, really, as in really you? Who are you really? That’s basically what this game is about – who are you – who is – the really you!
Every week – just three questions – about you to tell us!
How Competitive or Ambitious are you?
When younger l was very ambitious with regards my career, but not so much in the competitive department, however this is NOT saying l wasn’t balanced in both departments as l was. There is a distinct line between healthy and unhealthy competitiveness … but it also l think comes down to your personality as well as a definition as to what is meant by being competitive in the first place.
I think that as l have aged and especially more so now, being competitive seemingly is viewed by many younger age groups than my own as a negative thing and l think this is wrong – as said l think it is okay to be ambitious as long as you are not flattening people in your path and l think it is healthy to be competitive as long as it is again not completely dominating your life to the detriment of your health.
In a recent test l took online – my results on return showed that even today l am still somewhat competitive [85%] and yet when l reviewed the questions asked , l couldn’t help but wonder was l really taking an actual competitive test to begin with? It talked of how you handled stress, boredom, learning, risk taking, responsibility, leadership, thinking, creativity, work scheduling, rationality, goal creation and organisation? Admittedly these are not items l would have included in a competitive listing, but that is just me.
Next year Suze and l need to properly start a new business together and for this we both need to be more ambitious than perhaps we are.
Do you ever simply stop and wonder ‘Where has time gone to?’ or is it something that never bothers you?
Oh all the time, who doesn’t? It seems to me that each and every day l ask myself this very question, more so after doing anything physically exerting and notably noticing the ageing process. Does it bother me though? No, not really, it’s not like l can do anything about the way time passes, however l do try and fill my day as best as l am able so at least l can say l am not wasting the time that is passing me by quickly.
If you had a warning label, what would yours read?
Caution – possibly volatile in all directions and without moderation – BEWARE!!!
So there we go folks!
Three basic The Really You questions for you …

If you create a post with your answer please do remember to add a ping back to this post – l am currently not getting all the links and so sometimes l never see your responses, so a manual link in the comments also helps out – Cheers Rory
