“It’s not all about being the best you know. Maybe you should just take it easy."

If you get provoked when hit by the comment, you are in the field of the high performer character. And the person throwing that instruction at you, is about to enter the black book. It’s nothing personal. Just a high performer’s exceptional strong drive for achievements.
