Life, I believe, has different paths for every one of us. Knowing this important truth tackles the problem of depression and unnecessary competition.
The beginning of a thing doesn’t always predict its end. Life is a journey and it doesn’t matter how it is started, the destination can always be a sure thing.
Although all men are created equal, we don’t all have equal start. Some people have more talents than others. Some have more strengths and abilities than others. Some were born into an “already-made life”; Others were born into a “raw material life”.
The race of life is not the usual one we know of – – it’s not about who becomes first at the end of the race. It’s a very personal one!! Whether a person is successful or not, depends on the fact that he or she is able to finish his or her race successfully. That, for me, is all that matters. You may stumble and fall along the way, but always keep your focus on the finishing line of the race.
In the race of life, competition is needless. Run the race of your life at your own pace. The only person you’re in competition with is yourself. Become better than you were yesterday. Like the old African proverb says, “there’s enough space in the sky for two birds to collide.” There’s plenty of room for every one of us at the top!!
Don’t waste your time and energy on comparing yourself with others. The Good Book says that “comparing oneself to others makes a person unwise.” (2 Corinthians 10:12)
We may not all have an equal start but the good news is that we can all reach our destinations. That’s the beauty of it!
Nurture yourself, be courageous, don’t accept negativisms and mediocrities in your life. Be confident that your creator is capable of seeing you through the race. Live life to the fullest.
