One day someone asked me why I go so hard? Am I trying to keep up with someone? Am I afraid to get left behind? Who is my competition?

For a split second I almost told them don’t ever ask me a dumb question like that. There’s nothing on this Earth that a person has that I want and need that I’m in constant competition with them everyday for it.

Then a light bulb went off…………

I’m in competition with no man, not even myself. I have the victory over external and internal forms of stimuli. I just have to walk in that authority. Who I am, what I do and who I am supposed to be will be measured to no man but the one who is above all. Look in the mirror and tell me what you see? Do you see what’s staring back? When ever you stop, quit and don’t continue that, that thing right there. You know, your past, doubts, fears, worries, insecurities, etc it will catch up and it’s not just interested in catching up. No, my friend it’s coming to consume you. So now my friend, TELL ME what’s your competition after hearing me say all of that?
