No doubt, we are taught to compete with others in every aspect of life be it education, sports, jobs or business. This competing spirit has been a major driving force in our life. Sometimes it helps us to achieve our desired goal earlier by increasing our level of efficiency but most of the time ruins our peace of mind.
The trouble with competing against others is that you will always find someone better than you in certain aspect of life. And this leads you to harbor negative emotions such as jealously, hatred and of the same. Therefore, it is better to compete with yourselves and raise your level of performance every day.
Hence, you should strive to compete with yourselves if you want to achieve true success in life. Everyone is unique in their own aspect. No two persons can have equally the same talent. So it is not wise to compete with others. By doing so, you will lose your own unique individuality and a sense of self-respect. That is why competing with yourselves is a best way to make your life truly successful. Set your goal and strive to achieve that smoothly and early by raising your efficiency everyday with the help of competing against yourselves and that in turn lead you to have best life and a sense of true success.
