Yes, competition to a certain extent is healthy and actually i love to compete. Win or lose, i enjoyed the progress.
Wow, is it true?
Or is it because i win most of the time? I do not know until a few years back when things start to fall apart in my life. The conclusion is actually i do not exactly enjoy the progress but i enjoy winning. I must agree that those results didn’t come easy.
I studied very hard to get my straight As in both my O and A levels.
I am thankful I reached my goal and smelled victory.
Even before i graduate, i was doing some online selling and had good income coming in every month.
I believed I became slightly arrogant and I broke my teaching bond just 3 months into NIE (Singapore teaching college).
On top of some personal family issues, I thought the system has too many regulations AND pay me too little for the hours of work i put in.
I forgot about my passion. 😦
From then on, everything just went wrong. My online business slided after 2 years. Apparently, my supplier was advertising his business in the best way he know how and i end up having a dozen of competitors. I cut loss and went to find a corporate job. I was actually doing well. Had a very nice lady boss and i was promoted in the first 2 years. Besides that, my “ang mo” director favoured me. But i wasn’t happy. I thought a higher compensation can make me more happy and i went to another company with a 29% pay increase. I was wrong. I got more money but have to face talking with people who uses “colorful” languages which i detest.
Thank God for giving me the courage to pursue what i enjoyed doing ( which is teaching) despite the pay cut.
That is my story and what i am trying to say is that everyone actually only needs to be focused at our own race.
We are often insecure because we are always comparing and looking at what others is doing/wearing.
Woot! Just dress up!
Don’t look at your friends, and wish to be a S size, be the best M or L size in the world.
Nobody can be a better You than You.
