While competition brings out the worst in some people, being competitive has its advantages. The spirit of competition forces individuals to do their best in everything they strive to achieve and encourages them to do more than they can. True enough, some of the most successful people have had a taste of competition in their path towards greatness. And as someone whose life has had a fair share of healthy and unhealthy competition, Peter Stelling shares that the best person to compete against is oneself.
Peter Stelling, mostly recognized for his stellar image in the realms of music and entertainment, has spent most of his life in competition with others, especially with his siblings. Although competing with people has brought him to a spot closer to his dreams, Peter always felt unsatisfied with his small victories. And as he continued to traverse in this vicious cycle, he decided to redirect his competitive energy towards something else. As a result of this sudden shift, Peter found himself getting better at achieving his goals by competing with a person that genuinely leveled with his values and disposition – with himself.
Born and bred from the city of world-renowned theme parks, Orlando, Florida, is home to a family that vehemently values the spirit of competition. So at a very young age, Peter Stelling already caught a glimpse of what life is like in a cutthroat environment. And because Peter was the youngest among his four brothers, he had to learn how to keep up with them to stay in the competition. While it may sound like Peter spent his childhood years in an authoritarian household, he would not have had his past in any other way. Without the type of environment he lived in, he would not have realized that life is not about being the best; it is about becoming a better person each day.
With this understanding of life in mind, Peter Stelling redirected his pursuits towards making himself better than before. Fueled by this newfound passion for self-improvement, he set out to achieve the best version of himself. So, he focused his time and energy learning and practicing a variety of sports, music, arts, as well as his education. And although there are times that doubts would eat him up, Peter would always remind himself that he can be anything that he can dream of – as long as he puts his heart into it.
Now, Peter Stelling is a singer-songwriter, model, and actor who is pursuing a degree in Supervision and Management. Peter has continued to achieve more milestones than he ever had in his lifetime. And as he zeroes in opening the subsequent chapters of his life, he continues to center his various pursuits towards his betterment, instead of constantly competing with others.
There is nothing wrong with subjecting oneself in a competitive environment. And while it may be difficult for some to engage in this kind of combat, Peter Stelling and his achievements prove that competitions possess an unmatched ability to propel people towards greatness.
