Life is not a race. There is nothing to win. There is enough to learn. Learning to live and some times to survive. At the end of our days, there is not a rewarding system that judges us and decides our destiny in relation to the outcome of an evaluation. Luckily, life is not a competition.
I personally believe that we can all succeed, that one’s success can be shared with others and that helping one another can be a beneficial habit for everyone. In fact, if we think about it, it is not possible that we all can succeed, even if in different ways?
Competition can serve as an element of motivation, and sometimes it can also be fun. But in general it creates contrast, disharmony, hostility, and mutual distrust, in a word can be destructive, and therefore an obstacle to success, both of the individual and of the group.
