Someone once told me they wanted to make their place on the planet.

I told them that if they existed, they already had a place on the planet.

So this friend proceeded to explain in that monotone voice your kindergarten teacher would often exploit to make you understand a seemingly mundane concept that they meant they wanted to be better than the rest.

“Ah”, I said, their meaning gaining clarity. “There’s your problem. You’re so focussed on being better than everyone else you forget to try to be the best YOU can be!”

You will tend to find that if you stop competing with others and try to be the best you can be, you win the battle before you know you are in combat, so here’s to all of us trying to be the best we can be as human beings 🙂
