Compete against Yourself


 

Competition in life is inevitable. We have competition in all stages of life and in all walks of life. But the problem happens when we start competing in illogical and crazy ways. My neighbour bought a new car last month. So my wife and my children feel that our car is eight years old and a smaller one too. So we should also buy a new car that should be bigger too and a higher model preferably compared to what my neighbour has. This is called mad competition rush and is the result of all miseries in our life. And there is no end to this type of competition. Why should I compete against my neighbour? He is a big businessman and I am just a retired Indian Navy officer with a reasonably good pension. I will definitely change my car once it is about 10 years old and that too of the same level or just a shade higher model. I just can’t afford what my neighbour has bought.

Abstract


Competition in life is inevitable. We have competition in all stages of life and in all walks of life. But the problem happens when we start competing in illogical and crazy ways. My neighbour bought a new car last month. So my wife and my children feel that our car is eight years old and a smaller one too. So we should also buy a new car that should be bigger too and a higher model preferably compared to what my neighbour has. This is called mad competition rush and is the result of all miseries in our life. And there is no end to this type of competition. Why should I compete against my neighbour? He is a big businessman and I am just a retired Indian Navy officer with a reasonably good pension. I will definitely change my car once it is about 10 years old and that too of the same level or just a shade higher model. I just can’t afford what my neighbour has bought.
