Why do we compete?

Why do we push ourselves so hard?

To challenge ourselves?

Or to promote ourselves?

For the thrill of victory...

while risking the agony of defeat?

Why do we compete?

Whether as amateurs or professionals, whether as future medalists or worthy opponents, what inspires our goal-setting, our concentration and dedication, our hard work? What makes all the difference?

And how might these questions relate to a discussion of communication?
