An Unusual Rivalry

An Unusual Rivalry

A Story by Mitali Shah
"

A small message for my competitors.

"

I am not here to compete with any of my competitors, but I am here to compete with myself. Compete, compare and to evaluate myself in the current scenario with my past when I started off being a complete zero or may be just a beginner. You may be wondering I am not competing with other competitors here when I have a better chance to achieve my reason of participating amongst the crowd? My only simple reason and logic is that " Yes I have a better chance to knock them down with all my aspiring deeds and efforts. But how can I forget that though they are my competitors, today they are in this race with me because they too have conceived all those qualities in themselves. I may easily pull them down here but I can never pull them out from their spirit, skills, talents, years of perseverance and all the pursuits that landed them here today and made them this capable to reach here. It’s like comparing two tycoons who have made their mark and imprinted their names in their respective industries winning uncountable number of hearts. We simply can’t compare their success with each other. Today, whatever they do and they have reached its due to their hard work and par excellence that made them win the race and prove themselves being the best examples of inspirational icons to the youth and to the upcoming generation.

Your welcome sweetie
I agree. In writing. Room for a billion writers. If you write for competition. You won't learn the pleasure of words and friendship. We need to network our work and learn from each other. I enjoyed your thoughts and I second the motion.

Rightly so.....I love them both especially Steve jobs
I agree with your write 100% I don't see it as we are competing against each other but for me it's how can I get better and grow as a writer. How can I maintain my creativity and my style while sharing and reviewing many writes each day. There are always going to be better writers but the challenge is making myself the best I can be... the same thought process you have :) I like it :)
