Lasix (Furosemide)

Do you compare yourself to other people who seem to have ‘flashy’ lifestyles with all the hallmarks of success such as fast cars, big houses, attractive spouses and with many trophies to their success in their office or home? Do you constantly measure your self-worth against how well your performance or appearance matches with those of others? Answers to the questions below will help you to measure your ‘achievement ethic’:
Do you feel that you should always be striving to push yourself to meet new challenges and develop new skills?
Do you feel that you are what you do?
Do you feel you should always strive to achieve more, however well you have done before?
Do you agree that ‘If at first you don’t succeed try, try, again’ is a good personal motto?
Do you admire and want to be like people who have done well, or become rich or famous?
Do you disagree with the phrase ‘It’s lonely at the top’ because you believe that people will want to know you if you are successful?
Do you believe there are always winners and losers and you are resolved to be a winner?
Are you distrustful of other people who may become better performers than you?
How does competitiveness affect you?
If you agree with most of the above statements, you probably have a high need for achievement. This attitude is encouraged in our society. Television, radio and newspapers are often full of success stories. But success does not always bring happiness.
There are always plenty of stories of how former stars have been unhappy and even suicidal when they found that fame did not bring happiness. And even at an everyday level, there are many ways in which we can see that striving for success will not guarantee happiness, and that constant striving which continues even after a realistic level of success has already been achieved, can lead to frustration and despair.
The long-term effect on your health of constant competition is the same as for people who suffer time pressure and joyless striving, since all three traits lead to constant overdemand and chronic activation of the stress response. The longer-term effect on your personal relationships and emotional well-being is also destructive.
Competitiveness leads to superficial relationships with little t rust or warmth or caring, since all that is valued are your actions, not yourself. Other people will feel threatened and may withdraw from you, or attack your weaknesses. They may distrust you as someone who uses other people as stepping stones to your success. This ‘machiavellian’ behaviour is often irritating to subordinates and threatening to superiors. You may be attractive to people who will make use of your success and strengths but will not value you when you fail or become vulnerable. Your relationships will lack emotional warmth and support, which no amount of material or social success can compensate for in the long run.
What can you do to
modify your competitiveness?
One of the keys to conquering competitiveness is to learn to set your own standards for achievement, rather than always trying to set your standards by what you think other people will value you for achieving.
Step 1: Examine your standards
Try to check back over your main activities in the last few days and see what you expect of yourself. Are you setting your standards higher than you need to?
Step 2: Learn to get away with less than perfection
Try to decide for activities in the near future, just how much you need to do:
a) in order to get away with it
b) to do it to your own satisfaction.
If there is a big gap between a) and b) pick a couple of activities, and decide you will do them only to level a). Write these down in your diary or calendar.
Then check back when you have done them that you stuck to your resolution. Ask yourself, ‘Did it matter that you only did it in order to get away with it?
In future, try to pick out activities you don’t have to do so well and let yourself ‘get away with it more’. You may be surprised to find that you can let up on some things and still feel a worthwhile person.
Step 3: Reward yourself when you ease up on some achievements
Every time you catch yourself setting needlessly high goals for yourself, let yourself off the hook and congratulate yourself!
Put reminders to yourself in key places. For example, a red dot or biro mark in your diary at work can indicate to you a warning to examine your standards. This could be useful at the point in a meeting where you examine your diary in order to see where you can fit in more work. By looking at the warning red dot, you could stop to ask yourself whether you are simply taking on more to meet your own high standards or in order to look more capable than everyone else!
Step 4: Take on hobbies or activities you don’t have achieve at
See what activities you do now just for pleasure. See how much’ more time you could spend on them.
Remember: People who feel they have to achieve at everything often believe there is not enough money, status, power an regard from others to go round, so they fight for it. This is not true. You can get enough of what you really need to survive comfortably without stepping on others to get there
