“If you compete with no one,
no one can compete with you.”
Only the insecure compare themselves with others.
Some look around and feel inferior.
Some look around and feel superior.
Both perspectives are false.
The only true competition you will ever have is with yourself.
An apple tree cannot bear oranges,
nor the orange tree, apples.
The rose and the lotus, have no quarrel.
Some say accept where you are?
True, a seed is a seed, perfectly.
A sprout is a sprout, perfectly.
But don’t stop there? Keep reaching for the sun!
Your destiny is to flower and bear fruit.
