A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it. It just blooms. – Zen Shin
It is important to consider yourself just as a flower. You should focus on your work, and not compete with others around you. This is compared with the help of a metaphor of a flower to make an easy resemblance.
Just as a flower does not bother about the flower next to it, but rather it just focuses on blooming, you should also be doing the same.
It is essential to make sure that you focus on blooming, and be dedicated towards your own work. You must be bothered about blooming and doing the best in each and everything instead of competing with the people who are around you.
There’s no competition with anyone, as at the end of the day, it won’t yield you much. Therefore, all that you should do is to focus upon your own self. Just bloom and shine, instead of worrying about what others are doing.
The more you try to look at others, the more is your chance of getting distracted from your own path. Hence, you must never concentrate about what others have been doing, just give your best and the rest will automatically fall in its place.
When you start competing with others, you get more indulged into others’ job and that is when you stop minding your own task. Never make a competitive mind, as that won’t yield you anything better.
It is important to understand that everyone has his or her own clock. When it is time for you to bloom, you should not look at anything else other than your own business. Just try to give your best, and when you do so, just make sure that you aren’t occupied with other unnecessary thoughts.
Let them do what they intend to do! Their tasks are none of your business. You should only focus on giving your best and doing things so that they fall into their places all by themselves.
When you look at others, you have more chances of being deviated from your own goals. Hence, just make sure that no one can point you for your job. Do your best, and perform the part that is assigned to you.
Also, a competitive mind will bring a feeling of jealousy into your heart. Do not let that happen to you.
It is essential to make sure that you are always decent enough to walk on your path, without being bothered about what others are doing. Just know that other’s lives are different, and their botherations are none of your business.
