Everybody seems to be in a haste to overtake the other, to run longer distance and then receive praises of being the best. It can be satisfying especially if you turn out being the winner, but is more fulfilling if you do your very best in any field. That is, unleashing the full potentials within to do whatever activity your hand is found doing rather than allowing the other person influence on your ability.
Am not going to tell you how to be better than that your friend or business partner. There’s more to life than competition, until you believe that, you will never be able to awake the best in YOU.

As long as am concerned, everybody is blessed with one gift or the other. Is time you open your eyes to see what’s to come. Believing in the YOU to come.
