What competition might mean?
We humans became very competitive. We compete nearly with everyone and in everything. At least most of us. During my studies, me and my friends we were taught that, if you are not competitive, you will not exist. You will have no chance for a good job and earn good money. To have a good life and so on. When I started my first business I was told the same thing again. That, if I will not contest with others, I will not make money. In reality, I didn't make money because of that. This kind of belief, that competition is a must, is planted in peoples heads nearly from the first days of living.
Going to school we are compared to other children. Going out we are compared and at the same time comparing others to our belief systems. Even our parents, mostly unconsciously and in a good faith, compare us to our siblings or other kids. And by this making us believe, that we need to compete with them to achieve something. To earn parents love. To earn respect. To earn better treating from others. Later in school and then in the workplace, we are again compared to others. And again, this belief is strengthened in us. But do we really need this?
As you might notice, from this comparing comes the whole competition. We tend to believe that without that we will be unable to have a good life. To have a good relationship. To enjoy life and to be satisfied. And so we compete and compare others and ourselves, nearly all the time. This is good and might serve you right. But is it always? Do you have to always fight for your rights? Contend with others? For what? For better place, better money, better social status? Is that how you want to live your life? Are there any circumstances, when competing might serve you?
