The Real Nature of Competition Pt. 2

In Yoga we hear about this a lot...

"Our business in life is not to get ahead of others but to get ahead of ourselves - to break our own records, to outstrip our yesterdays by our today; to do the little parts of our work with more force than ever before." -Stewart Johnson

That is the only true competition, the one we can really win. As for other ppl, there will always be those who are "better" or "worse", but I don't have to be the judge of that. The idea is to become, every single day, better than myself left over from yesterday. That is the only mark I can truly know (from its origin) and that is the only standard I can truly surpass. What belongs to others is not for me to decide, but I can modify and improve what belongs to me.
