You have been taught to compete. You do not want to do that but everyone around you tells you different success stories by which you get intrigued and rush for things to be accomplished quickly. You set your goals and keep eyes on them and forget every other thing that also needs your attention.
It is not wrong to have ambitions in life. It is also not wrong to set goals in life. Following your dreams and goals is no way wrong at all but the way we pursue them could be worried about.
Running after your ambitions is good for you as it allows you to stay focused in life and grow in certain area of your choice but you should always remember that running does not mean that you are running to win the race.
Life is not a race. We should never consider it a race and we have to win it by hook and crook. If we think otherwise, everything becomes meaningless for us except to win the race and we leave so much far behind while running in that race that has worth enjoying.
Always be focused in life and try not to take life as a race as there is no end if you run.
