In our regular life we always want to compete with each other.Whoever we see a little better in anyway,mostly when it comes to financial security,but it could be for fame,and power also.we always start engaging ourself in a aggressive race with each other,and the result we get is a temporary and very momentarily feeling of success which last untill we decide to race again with something else.From our childhood we are taught to rank first in everything,to compete with other human intelligence disregarding the fact everyone has different potentiality in different fields.The competition should be with our ownself not with any external force.When we were children we would be happy saying I am the first boy or first girl in our class,but this is just a lie we are told to feel good .There is no "The First" or The Last" in our life,so if there is no constant figure to achieve then why make such a small goal,which is ever changing.You may rank 100 scoring 99 out of 100.You rank 100 cause there are 99 people who did better than you as you feel it.But you should judge score not rank.you just need 1 number to get 100% ,and its not a big deal.We need to forgive ourself to let go some small small problems, we think Big.We need to think sometimes on what we achieved which inspire us in a way that if we can achieve this much then we can do better but the more you think about that 1 number you will get just frustrated out of nowhere. You can only understand yourself not others ,then how can you race with others potentiality or speciality?.I am not saying that what we are taught in childhood is totally wrong,that's right thing for a children to have but as we grow up we need to change our ways of thinking. As I said there is no certain way to determine right or wrong cause it depends on three factors,Time,Place and Person.
Now there might have a question that if we don't race with others then how can we be better than others? The answer leads to actually another question "do you TRULY know what your limit is?" We don't, truly .If We always want to live in a comfort zone then our capabilities are completely unknown by ourselves, so logically there is a higher self inside you which could be a completely different person than you are now .And we all need to find that ,win that race to achieve that.
To me "competition" is a word which we selfishly use to be better,but the actual word should be "cooperation" not "competition".
