Sometimes we get caught in the rat race, where we believe that we are competing with our colleagues and friends to get that promotion or recognition from our bosses; or we are trying to show our friends, family or neighbours that we are going on a really expensive holiday or we are about to buy that latest car model or put the deposit down on a house in an expensive, exclusive area.
A recent study even found that competition is even more fierce amongst spouses to show who’s better at winning an argument, getting a promotion from work, better at getting recognition from children and more 😔 🏃🏽♂️It seems we are always competing with others....
BUT in reality, we are our own best or worse competition. This is your life, the race is to be a better you, to love up to your dreams and aspirations, to loose weight for yourself so that you can healthier for those around you and hence a live a more fulfilling life. We are all are unique with our set of goals, passions and drive. If you want to be better, you should set your goals to improve your character, to show kindness to those around you and leave a respectful legacy.
Ironically, if you help others achieve their own goals as opposed to competing against them, they too will help you and you will witness ❤️ come back to you.
So, next time you get distracted trying to outdo your partner, child, parent, best friend, colleague, boss or people you know, ask yourself
“HOW IS THIS GOING TO HELP ME ACHIEVE MY GOALS AND BE A BETTER PERSON IN THIS WORLD?
