Any way you cut it, being too caught up in a result is a recipe for disaster. But if you are predominantly focused on the process of getting better, you become more resilient to both successes and failures, which shift from being singularly defining events to waypoints on a broader path of continual progression. This manner of pursuing progress is not only the healthiest, but also the most likely to result in lasting peak performance.
Don’t Worry About Being the Best. Worry About Being the Best at Getting Better.

Absolutely, very well said. And it makes perfect sense, doesn’t it? A person focused on becoming better rather than on benchmarks usually is doing so because they’re passionate about their work, proving once again the value of loving what you do.
