Living in a world that is becoming superficial by the minute, a world where people compete for trivial things like status, likes, followers, new cars or weeve…it really can become very easy to just flow with the current and conform.
I however, always encourage against it; competing with others on a whole. For me, it doesn’t make any sense because no two people fight the exact same struggle, at the exact same time and therefore it just doesn’t make logical sense to compete with anybody.
I think what’s more scary though, is the extent people will go to be better than the next person and usually “better” is defined by material things for these kinds of people; car, phone, job, clothes, home etc. You find people will put themselves in absurd predicaments just to prove they’re better or #winning? Lol, nah! not for me hey.
Whilst I try my best not to judge, I make it my duty to encourage many folk against conformity. This is why this quote is my #1 for today. It goes:
It’s not about being the best, It’s about being better than YOU were yesterday.
Short and sweet, but to the point.
So you have a competing nature? That’s OK, just channel it to compete in a healthy way and that is with yourself. Push your personal boundaries #levels. Whether it is exercise, studies, finances or health, or even small things like controlling your anger, tongue or rants; anything that you want to be better at for you and not because Shiela from next door has it or is doing it.
In order to be the best at anything, you need to be the best version of yourself. Lets focus on that 🙂 Shall we?
Share some of the things you want to be better at or simply share this post to encourage others against conformity or competing on a superficial level.
