Tao Te Ching Chapter 68-3 True winner
A true winner doesn't compete. (Ch.68)
A: "Master Bonbon, another religious group has just opened its office in our town. Can we win against them?"
B: "Do whatever to win! Make more people join our organization. Tell them we have a 100% satisfaction guarantee policy. «If you don't get Satori, you will get your donation back, excluding the transaction charges»".
If you don't compete, you will never be beaten.
Lao Tzu says:
"Simply, he doesn't compete. That's why no one under the sky can compete with him." (Ch.22)
This is the essence of Aiki-do 合気道, or Tao of synchronized energy. (☞See Aikido 22-12 and Don't compete 66-7)
The so-called enemy is part of your hologram along with your own self.
So, it is useless to compete.
