If you haven’t then you have really missed out?
“People are such that only when facing a serious obstacle will they release all their latent capabilities”
“While envy is bad, it yields effort greater than there would be without it”
“It is only when a man has a wall to climb, will he learn to climb”
Having a rival or a wall you cant climb over is one of the best experiences to challengers. This is because they value the fact that they can one day climb over and hence put in more effort than others may have. Rivals are the best way to succeeding in almost every endeavor as they are like a level you try to reach and a motivation to your effort as well as obstacles you want to overcome. The above quotes could not say it better. Get yourself a good rival and enjoy your new endeavor
