Are our competitions against the opposite and awkward Circumstances? Or with individuals?It is said that Aesop, the storyteller of ancient Greece, was the organizer of the bet between the tortoise and the hare. In that bet, the rabbit lost due to laziness and overconfidence. the talent does not matter. We learned a lesson from that, no one would have beaten us, if our talent had been used properly.
This is how the second part of it became clear in someone else's imagination. The rabbit, who had lost the first match, invited the tortoise to the next bet. The tortoise convinced that he would lose, reluctantly accepted the invitation. This time the rabbit did not show laziness. He ran fast and won the race. By the time the tortoise reached the finishing point, it was very exhausting.
Their bets continued. The tortoise put a condition on the next bet. "I will determine the distance and route of the competition." "I am ready to run either way." the rabbit replied. But the route the tortoise suggested was not so easy. They had to cross a river on the way. The rabbit ran fast and reached the river bank. But he was depressed with no way to cross over. The tortoise, on the other hand, slowly reached the riverbank, slowly swam across the river to the finishing point, and succeeded. Here, the tortoise used his ability to swim across the river to devour the rabbit. Would the rabbit have won if he had been sad that he could not run like a rabbit? The tortoise won by taking advantage of his ability to swim.
After betting two or three times, they became great friends. They discussed and decided to make another bet. It was completely different from the other bets. The distance and route were the same as in the previous bet. But the nature of the bet was completely different. The tortoise stays on the rabbit's shoulder until it reaches the river. On the riverbank, the tortoise descended from the rabbit's shoulder, and the rabbit climbed on top of the tortoise, crossing over. Both succeed together.
It is mutual cooperation that has made both of them winners here. If we work together like this in the family and in the community, we can all ensure success together. Together, we can combine our talents and abilities to fight against adversity and celebrate success. Let our competition be not person-centered, but with opposite, awkward circumstances.
