I am understanding the focal point behind this talk but here is where I am confused: he starts off by addressing the fact that this about being in competition with yourself and not others... But then goes on to say that if he knows of another individual working harder than him, that he will then make sure he goes beyond that person. Is that not being in competition with external sources and not just yourself?

Haley Deuel Yeah and he also says that he was studying to catch back on those who were above him.
