Stop competing

Competition is essential in sports and business. Competition brings the best out of competitors. Competition opens doors of expansion and growth. Competition brings challenges and opportunities to both business and sports personalities. Competition leads to success and rewards. But ironically, competition is not ideal in the journey called life.
You can’t go through life competing with others. You can’t go through life trying to outperform others. You can’t go through life trying to match up to others. You can’t go through life trying to impress others. You can’t go through life trying to be better than others. Life is a marathon and not a short sprint.
In order to live meaningfully, stop faking the success you know you can’t afford. Stop living about your means. Stop pretending to be a top dog when you know you are still struggling down there to find a way to the top. Stop living in a place you know you can’t afford. Stop competing for recognition when you know your bank account is drying up. Stop borrowing the glamour you know you can’t repay. Stop throwing a wedding and parties that are beyond your pocket. Stop appearing flashy when your funds are getting empty. Stop trying to make an impression when nobody is paying attention. Stop the foolishness of competing before you end up becoming a fool. Stop the madness of competing before you end up in a mental institution.
Take note that overspending leads to debts. Take note that competition breeds discontentment. Take note that competition leads to disaster, divorce and depression. Take note that competition leads to gambling. Take note that competition leads to suicide. Take note that competition leads to crime. Take note that competition is one of the sources of unhappiness. Take note that competition creates problems.
Take note that contentment is a decision and not a feeling. Take note that life can be fulfilling when you live at your own pace. Take note that life can be gratifying when you built one brick at a time. Take note that life can be less stressful and healthy when you quit competing. Take note that life can be pleasurable when you focus on your dreams and desires. Take note that life can be enjoyable when you live according to your means and standards.
