We are living in a competitive environment. From time of birth to our death we are competing.
We are competing over materialistic things:
- Grades in your degrees
- Salary you are drawing.
- Girl/Guy you got married to.
- How well off you are in your life with all the possession, vacation and life long luxury .
- $$ will be spent on decorating you skeleton in graveyard or quality of wine served on celebrating your death.
I honestly have no clue about anything above, all I am busy these days is comparing myself with what/how I was last year. Competing with self to be better in life is best thing that has happened to me.
Give it a try, it will make you a different human being altogether.
