She could not move her eyes off the nearby colleagues in the office, especially the one sitting right across a walkway from her, lady D.
She determined that lady D was her biggest competition. Because of lady D, she did not get promoted, and did not get the big bonus she thought she could get.
She got upset when their boss gave a new project to lady D, not to her. She felt her whole day got ruined because of lady D could argue with their boss and dared say No to certain assignments.
“How dare she? I even can’t beg for an assignment.” She thought.
She could not stand the way lady D talked to their boss. She recorded the time lady D came to the office secretly and got mad when lady D left early and came late.
She thought this is unfair.
One day, lady D left the office for good. She moved to another city with her husband.
Suddenly, she felt empty and hungry, something was missing.
After a while, she realized there were holes in her life.
“Who am I? What do I want? What makes me happy?”
She began her soul searching and self-discovery journey.
After two years of coaching, learning, self reflection, She has realized that her competition in life is not the other one, not lady D.
Her competition is herself.
Her biggest competition is herself.
Her future competition is herself as well.
