Letter From Our Chief Encouragement Officer

Jake Thompson, Chief Encouragement Officer of Compete Every Day

Welcome to Compete Every Day™!

I’m incredibly excited you’re visiting our company’s site and wanting to learn more about the Compete Every Day™ brand and movement.

We are a lifestyle brand devoted to sharing the competitive mindset that every individual should compete. Every second. Every day. For beliefs, work, families, relationships, health, and ultimately, life.

We are more than a symbol or phrase on a shirt or wristband.

Our story is built to share others’ stories of success, empowerment, and create positive change throughout the world. The beauty of Compete Every Day is that it means something different to each one of us.

Some of us compete for our relationships with our families or spouses. Others compete for their dream career or life. And others compete to maintain a healthy body, mind, and spirit.

CrossFit athlete. High school student. Working mother of four. Missionary in south Africa. Doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from – each of us has the power inside of us to compete for the life we desire while shaping this world into a better place.

So why should you compete?

One cannot be complacent with their relationships, their work, or their health and expect to achieve great results or even just sustain them.

Each one of us has a life worth competing for. Maybe it’s not what you want it to be right now, but that just means you need to start fighting for where you want it to go. It’s never too late to get a fresh start and change of direction.

Maybe life’s just perfect. I promise you, it won’t stay perfect unless you compete to keep it that way. Relationships, like flowers, die without being tended to.

But even when life is perfect right now, it is going to change.

The wind will redirect itself from being at your back to blowing a full gale force wind in your face. What will you do then?

Back down and just wallow in defeat?

Or stand up to whatever life throws at you and compete?

I encourage you to compete. To chase after the people, the dreams, the values you hold so dear. Don’t let them wither away from neglect.

86,400 seconds in a day.

Here’s to competing for every damn one of them.

– Jake
