Life Is a Journey, Not a Competition

Just as a general note, you should eliminate any thought that there is an expectation that you do anything by any age. You don’t have to be married with kids by 25. It’s okay to be 16 and never been kissed. There is nothing wrong with you if you have not graduated from college by 22. You are not a failure because you don’t have your dream job at 30. There are no rules to life. You don’t get special points for achieving certain things by a deadline. Just go at your own speed; Life is not a race.

Life is a journey and not a competition. If you admit this fact, you will be happy and experience a wonderful fulfilled life. Life is a gift, age is just number and time is an illusion. Philosophers and physicists has made it known that the nature of time has always inspired curiosity in humans.

Albert Einstein was very clear in his day. Physicists are now very clear about the concept of time too. Time is not absolute, despite what common sense tells you and me. Time is relative and flexible. According to Einstein, “the dividing line between past, present, and future is an illusion”. So, reality is ultimately TIMELESS. This sounds pretty bizarre from the view of classical physics, but from the view of consciousness theory and spirituality, it fits in perfectly.

I implore you not to worry too much about your unachieved goals, just stick to the plans you have made towards achieving those goals and be optimistic that someday you will achieve those goals. Don’t worry over time, or get intimidated about others achievements because everyone has their own special time of success in life.

I have heard and read about some popular and successful late bloomers like – Bryan Cranston, Colonel Sanders, Anton Bruckner, Vivienne Westwood, J.K Rowling and lots more.

So, I implore you all to be courageous and optimistic in walking the journey of life at your own pace and intention. Don’t chase people, don’t force things, they will fall in place when you least expect them. Live life with baby steps, live your life for progress, not perfection; and you will experience a wonderful fulfilled life.
