At War with Yourself: Notes on self-competition

At War with yourself,.. The only competition is self-competition. Everything that happens is a direct consequence of our own actions and competing, with small wins and losses, with ourselves along the way. Einstein said, “Perception is our most powerful tool” and he was right. If you believe in these 2 statements, you will change things in a positive way for yourself and those around you. Posturing and anger never solved anything except in the world of Art, meaning it was backed by a statement, however abstract. Hopefully, that just changed your perception of art. Independent thought will solve tomorrow’s problems, not prescribed knowledge (that’s a tool to independent thought). Moving on,.. What do we want from our leaders? How about: Decisiveness, Responsiveness, and Honesty. I think that is pretty good. So who is the leader in our world of self-competition, you are. Be what you expect a leader to be and you will change things in a positive way for yourself and those around you. If this message bothers you in any way, don’t worry about me; I’m only competing with myself
