I was jogging one day and i noticed a person in front of me, about 1/4 of mile. I could tell he was running a little slower than me and I thought, i shall try to catch him. I had about a mile to go my path before i needed to turn off. So i started running faster.Every block, i was gaining on him just a little bit.I was only about 100 yards behind him, so i pushed myself. Finally, i did it! I passed him by. On the inside i felt so good. “I beat him” of course, he didn’t even know we were racing. After i passed him, i realised i had been so focused on competing against him that i had missed my turn. I had gone nearly six blocks past it. I had to turn around and go all back. Isn’t that what happens in life when we focus on competing with co-workers, neighbours, friends, family, trying to outdo them or trying to prove that we are more successful or more important? We spend our time and energy running after them and we miss out on our own paths. The problem with unhealthy competition is that its a never ending cycle. There will always be somebody ahead of you, someone with better job, nicer car, more money in the bank. “You can be the best that you can be, you are not competing with no one.” There’s no competition in DESTINY, run your own RACE and wish others WELL!
