"Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it, you will land among the stars"- Les Brown
The best competitor with you is yourself because no other person has the same assignment on earth as you do. Your assignments may be similar, but not the same.
It is therefore expected of you to set a standard for yourself with your goals and compete to complete that standard. When setting your standards, you don't limit yourself to the good, but you aim at the best. Never settle as a housefly when God called you to fly like an eagle...
Excellence is attained by people who set their own records and break them on successive accounts. Aim at the best and why not?
Remember, whatever great thing you can do today, you can do greater than that tomorrow. It’s all about record setting and record breaking on successive basis to get to the top where only few could reach.
Let the best come out of you. Never let complacency fool you; you can do better than what you are doing today! Just believe it.
