Who’s Your Competition?

We are all in competition but with who and what? We’ve all heard someone say, “I’m not in competition with anybody! I don’t care what anybody else is doing!” Well, foremost, we should be in competition with ourselves – pushing, prodding, never relenting, in a constant pursuit to make ourselves the best selves we can be – to sharpen ourselves like steel sharpens steel, to fulfill our purpose in being here. Only then, in this state, can we truly compete against our adversaries? Can we withstand the pressure, hatred and wickedness poised to deter, destroy and impede us – if we have not strengthened our minds, bodies, and spirits – to COMPETE. So if your competition isn’t the people around you, and you are not in competition with yourself, what are you doing?
