No Competition


Life is not a competition and there is no finish line for this journey. We are all going at our own pace with different destinations in mind. We will all get to where we need to go but at our own speed. We all have different paths with unique bends and turns in the road. Some are longer, others shorter, some rigged, others smooth, and some can get cut shorter than intended, but, the one thing we all have in common is that we can help each other along the way.

Life is not a competition and we have no competitors. We are all on the same level and on the same team- no one is better than one another (even if someone thinks they are, they aren’t). Since we are all on the same team, we need to lift each other up and help each other reach our fullest potential. We need to experience, love, inspire, collaborate, and celebrate all in one lifetime.

When we have each other to count on it makes our lives more meaningful and rich. We need to be genuinely happy for one another with each success, and be there as a helping hand for each failure. When we do this we get to experience more emotions with each other that connect us on a deeper level. And that’s what life is all about right- creating meaningful relationships and memories with the ones you care about the most?

When you start to realize that life isn’t a competition you begin to find joy in watching others shine and succeed! You get to become so proud of your friends and family and all that they have accomplished. You even encourage them to let their light shine through! You stop being so hard on yourself and comparing yourself to others- which relieves a world of stress and tension off of your shoulders, and because of this you start to feel lighter and fresher. You begin to see the world as a beautiful place where everyone is all connected on some level. You start to appreciate the small things and see the bigger picture. All of this, and more, just becasue you came to the realization that life is not a competition.

Go through your own world at your own speed with no rush. Take your time and enjoy the journey- you aren’t in a race. Encourage others to do the same and help them reach their fullest potential.

There is no competition and you have no competitors.

Celebrate others successes and be there for their failures.

Be present.

Have you been acting in a way as if life was a competition? If so, how will you take today to change it?

As always, have a great day!
