I’ll share with you a story about an athlete with a cerebral palsy who competed in the 400meter race
When the race began, with every strol he took, he was painfully dragging his feet across the concret. The pain was unbearable but he kept on running
The remaining athletes finished the race and the were now beginning to watch the last man with awe and amazement
The athlete continue to drag his feet and continue to push through, seeing the end goal in sight but the pain kept on reminding him of his baggage. He had one thing in mind, FINISH.
now everyone that finsihed the race waited to watch them finish. The unexpected happen however, everyone began cheering him on as if he was the gold medalist.
The athlete kept on pushing and pushing dragging and dragging until he waa fibally 3/4 the way till the end, then the worst happened. He started to bleed and he Fell.
But to his surprise thats when people cheered even louder and LOUDER.
So that pain became distant and he knew what he had to do. FINISH.
Now all the other athletes followed him, stood by him and some were ahead of him clapping, encouraging him to push on and focus on his GOAL. FINISH.
Sure enough after a gruelling excruciating pain. He managed to finish. Finally, blood gnashing put and be has only one thing on his mind, FINISH. AND FINISH HE DID!!!
NOTHING else mattered, he knew he made and everythung now was worth, even the blood, the pain, the challenges and the negative thoughts that managed to creep in.
The moral of the story was if you continue to compete with other people (other athletes) you always going to lose.
Everyone’s going to be ahead of you
But the moment you start to compete with yourself everyone starts to help you.
So your core values should not for you to compete with other business or people or other relationships,
But instead is to continue to fight with yourself to better yourself and only then that everybody will come United come together and start believing in what you believe.
When you start to compare yourself with others YOU become haunted by the idea that you always need to be on top and continue to fight with no end.
if you just focus on bettering yourself and only with yourself then everybody will come United come together and help you with the cause.
Because start to believe in what you believe and follow your lead.
