Ever since I was little I’ve heard the story of ‘The Tortoise and the Hare’. I used to wonder “how did that slow tortoise beat that insanely fast rabbit?” Then, one day it hit me!
Everyone knows someone who goes above and beyond to out do everyone; aka a show-off. This person is so busy trying to beat others that he/she loses every time because it’s being done for the wrong reasons. The hare had the race in the palm of his hand but he was so busy showing off, worrying about where the tortoise was and setting traps for him that he lost the race himself!
The lesson I learned: Run your own race! Stop worrying about what everyone else is doing and their position in life. Stay focused on what’s going on in your life and you’ll win the race ever time!
