Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Patrick Bet-David explains why he doesn't fear competing against entrepreneurs with fancy degrees, wealthy backgrounds or good looks. Instead, he worries about being outdone by the biggest thinkers -- the sort of people who never stop trying to improve or working on what's next. Who keep coming up with big ideas, even if the reward doesn't come quickly or if no one realizes their potential.
