He said that life is not cool if it’s flat and there are no ups and downs. One of the things that makes life up and down and not flat is competition. I’ve had several ‘opportunities’ to compete with other people, to win the same thing we want. In the past, I always served my competitive desire, wow, it’s different now….
“A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it. It just blooms.”
When I read that quote for the first time, (if I’m not mistaken) when I was in 3rd grade, I felt like I was slapped. I feel like “that’s right”. Why do we compete with the goal of ‘to be better than him’, when we should always do the best we can. You don’t have to wait for a rival, right?
I’m the type of person who doesn’t like competition. I think competition makes us want to get rewarded. If there is no reward, then you are lazy. Isn’t it true…..
What I do now when I feel ‘challenged’ by other people, I usually have to believe in my goal first. Do your best, give the best for the person or thing that is your goal. Then it’s stupid what other people want. Do you want other people to do business too or what? That’s not my business HEHE.
Actually, this post was made because….because….because….it’s okay, it’s just for fun. That’s it. Here’s another quote.
“Never stop doing your best just because someone doesn’t give you credit.”
