Isn't it funny how much competition there is in everyday life?? We compete for jobs, for positions, for love, for attention, to be heard, to be noticed... the list just does not end. Life is a unending road of competition. Someitmes it just doesn't seem fair.
Men are the most competitive in my opinion. That's just my opinion now mind you. I raised two sons and I have watched them compete for so much. Who got the most geese in a hunt, who scores the most points when playing games? Who does the better job? My oldest is the worst about it. He doesn't like to be beat at anything. But then I guess many do not like it. Me I don't care anymore. If I win , Yay!!, if I lose , so be it.
Sometimes it is in the losing that we learn life lessons. There is always going to be someone that is better at something than any of us do. But it is in the effort that really matters. If we do our very best at whatever we do, it really doesn't matter if we win or lose, what matters is we gave it our all, we put our best foot forward with a sincere heart. If we win, what a victory. But if we lose, we really don't lose, we can walk away knowing in our hearts we tried to the best of our own individual abilities. When we lose we look to see how we could have done better and we pick ourselves up and try again. Remember the old saying, ' When at first you don't succeed, try and try again.' It is in the trying that we find our strengths. And finding our strengths makes us grow, and growing makes us better inside of ourselves.
The world will always be a competitive playing field. It is the attitude that we enter that field with that matters. Smile and give it your all. Thats what makes us winners.
