Thought for the day!

image

The fact that I used to be among the top five ranks in my class never used to please my parents the way it should have. What actually pleased them was when I had outperformed my own previous performance. While I found this a bit annoying back then when all the other parents used to shower hugs and kisses to those other topper kids I now realize and am so proud that it was established to me at such a young age that one’s main competition is oneself! πŸ™‚
Compete with yourself, ensure you are a better at work today than yesterday;
ensure you are better behaved with your family today than yesterday;
ensure you are a better person today than yesterday. πŸ˜€

  1. This is so true!! I know I used to rejoice when I scored highest or second best, but my parents always told me, that didnt mean I won or are the best. They always said, I need to be better than my best. And boy is that true. Comes handy even now.. πŸ™‚
