                   The present age is an age of competition. Competition with each other; competition to get a step ahead than the others to realize goals; competition to secure more marks in examination; competition to get the top positions in every field; and competition to make oneself the best. In this competitive age, all the people are in a race. While running the race they used to forget their health, relationships and even sometimes the direction. While running the race and looking forward they used to miss many opportunities which were lying behind. They become machines in a human body.  And they began to lose gradually the peace of mind, happiness, health and relationships which are very vital for survival.

Competition gives birth to stress:
                   Competition now a days is becoming a habit in the lives of the people. The root of competition is comparison. It is comparison that gives birth to competition. And it is competition which is the origin of many evils in our society. It gives birth to stress. Competition in one field leads to competition in other fields simultaneously. First competition may begin for a just cause and then it spreads to others and occupies every field of human heart and mind. It breeds jealousy, enmity and hatredness. A long practice of competition to achieve goals unknowingly develops these vices which becomes firmly rooted in character. And the  result is whatever activity or work is done is not out of love or devotion but only for the sake of leaving others behind. Therefore even after achieving their goals people are not actually happy.

Follow your Direction:
          Therefore in this writing I want to focus on a very important thought i.e. 'direction is more important than speed'. In competition we give more importance to speed. We want to move very fast. But you must move in a direction which will lead you not only achieving your goals but also peace of mind, sound health and happiness. When you move in a direction, you are definitely going to reach it. Competition comes to existence because of the time factor only. We want to achieve things before someone or better than someone before a particular time limit. What is then the solution?

Follow your natural rhythm:
          The solution is to follow your natural rhythm. Speed is important when the goal is time bound. But the speed must be determined by you. The speed should be your natural rhythm and not an enforced one. Do not follow the speed of other people. Find your natural speed and follow it. Follow it with all your love and devotion. Gather all your enthusiasm together, channelize your energy and put it into your work without any competition. Follow your natural rhythm    and enjoy the journey to your goal. Celebrate every single moment of your life and feel the distance to your goal lessening spontaneously. 

Transform Competition to devotion:
          When you work not out of competition but out of devotion, your life will take a different turn. You will enjoy happiness every moment. You will develop a pleasant personality. You will experience good health. You will experience freedom everywhere. You will become more creative and innovative. More importantly you will realize your true potential. But in competition you do not have time to think. You remained busy maintaining the speed. You remained busy in comparing. Out of stress sometimes you may experience even ill health basically when you have to appear an examination or interview or any other projects that you want to complete before time. Do not run after success. Run after excellence. Master excellence and success will run after you. Excellence can’t be mastered by competition. It can only be acquired by devotion and dedication. Moreover it is devotion that gives birth to LOVE. And when love occupy your body,mind and soul nothing else is required. You will feel complete every moment.

Remain on your path:
          You have to be focused. Always concentrate on your goal and follow your actions and plans earnestly to reach your goal. Don’t deviate. Don’t deviate from your true path. If you miss the direction, you will miss your goal. If you change your direction, again you have to start a new journey. You have to start from ‘ZERO’. Therefore don’t leave your path. Decide it wisely. Do whatever you need to do on a daily basis. Sooner or later you are bound to reach your goal.
