Life Is Not About Racing To The Top, It’s About The Climb

Advertisement

Feeling rushed to achieve and getting stressed about deadlines are the most common moods these days. The only thing we can think of while seeing others succeeding is how much more than us or less than us they have achieved. But the taste of real freedom lies just beyond the torn spreadsheets comparing our life with others’. Take a look at the things you can do to ensure that you are content with yourself. Because… ain’t about how fast you get there, ain’t about what’s laying on the other side… it’s the climb.

Fight Your Jealousy

Fighting to be better than others is coded into our genes. It can be very stressful for some people to observe others doing better than them. But life is not about performing better than others. Every person is unique. Their abilities are unique and so are their circumstances. The only competition one has is within. It’s not about going over the mountain sooner it’s about the climb.

Learn To Be Happy For Others

Everyone who is succeeding must have struggled for it. Just like you deserve to win for your hard work so do they. Celebrate their success with them. Be happy when someone who needs it badly enough achieves it. If their side of the mountain looks smooth then their climb would have been harder.

Try To Achieve You Personal Goals

Set yourself goals that do not require you to compete with others. Visit the places you want to, put into practice the exercise regimen you have been putting off. Fight with yourself and try to be better every day. Keep learning. Keep climbing the mountain within.

Better Late than Never

If you like something don’t stop yourself from pursuing it because you are too late. You are never too late to do what you like. You are never too late to be happy. Go ahead and go as far as you can go.

Measure In Quality Not In Quantity

Life is not measured in years. It is measured in the moments and the realizations one has. It’s measured in memories and experiences. It is measured in tears and laughter. It is measured in the hearts you touch. Age and marks are pointless. They may lead you to the stairs but they won’t help you climb. It’s not the height of the mountain that matters. It’s the climb that stays with you long after the climbing is over.

There Is Joy In Growing Together

If you have more than you need then share it with others. Sharing stories and food brings us so much joy. Imagine how much more fulfilled your life would feel if you could help someone in need. Even the most fertile mountains get lonely at the top.

Growing bigger than your insecurities is not an easy task. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you fail to be perfectly happy in other’s happiness. You are only human. And you are getting better as long as you are trying.
