It’s a competitive world, but I am resolute about my stance not to compete with anyone. Some few years ago, I shelved the idea of joining the queue to enroll in the endless rat race.
On this other side, I see peace smiling at me and serenity lodges in my abode all day. In this rare cubicle of uniqueness, I celebrate the victory of others without a tinge of anxiety or jealousy. This is the best way to live your life and get the best out of your days.
So, am I sitting on my oars or complacent? Oh! No, I push myself so hard, and my standards are super high, but this is the difference – I compete with myself.
Whatever I am doing to get better, I am doing solely for myself and not for anyone to see. A version of me today has to be much better than the version of me you met six months ago.
That is the goal!
It’s obvious that we love metrics but it’s an insult to the investment in you to compare yourself with another person.
