I am not interested in competing with anyone, I only hope we all make it.
I know and believe that we all want what is best in life. Competition exist so that we do not sit on our laurels and take our feet off the pedal. Competition also exist, so that people have a choice to choose what is right, best and suitable for them. It also exist, so that people can be able to make inform decisions that best suit their needs and wants. A healthy competition allows better offerings and best quality.
I have never been frightened of failure, but of failing to try again and again. Let not, fear of competition be used not to implement your vision, idea or dreams. Let it not be a determining factor for your venture failure but allow it rather, to be part of your success. Do not get me wrong, it will never be easy as others will try and pull you down.
But remember this, your present situation is not your final destination. The best of you is yet to come. Have faith by taking the first step. You cannot change or control how competition feel about you, so do not try to do so. Just live your life and along the way, be happy when doing so.
I am in competition with no one. I run my own race. I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone, in any way, shape or form. I have no aspiration of deceiving, plotting others’ downfall, being greedy or jealous of others’ success. I just aim to improve, to be better than I was before, not better than anyone. That is me and I am free. I worry less about others and their thinking, but worry more on how I make this journey a success on my own.
Maybe, and hopefully maybe, I will someday find what I am looking to achieve. Or maybe I won’t. Maybe I will find something much better and greater than that. Along the road when I have surpassed competition, negative feedbacks, comments and my venture is successful, I will never forget the ones who stood by my side, especially the ones who never gave up on me.
I am not competing with anybody. If you get there before me. Congratulations. Life is an express road and overtaking is allowed. That is why I hope and only wish that, we all make it. To me where I start is not as important as where I finish. I almost daily, imagine, feel, breath, smell and live with the finish line in mind.
