A desire to be something and to have something makes everyone run in an endless race! In this race who do you compete with? The people who are running alongside you, behind you or the people in front of you? Naturally, you compete against the people who are running beside you.
But, is competition good? When you compete with others your concentration gets diverted and your energy gets wasted. Your goal becomes to beat the competition, instead of reaching your own goal. Therefore, your own goal gets sidelined.
In reality, you should compete with yourself. Your true competition should be with your past self and you should always strive to become better than you were yesterday. This is possible by remaining sincere to yourself and towards your goal.
This is exactly what the Gnani Purush Param Pujya Dadashri, teaches us in a practical and scientific way. Get set on your road to success without competition.
