Success, by definition, means overcoming our limitations. Therefore, when we win, no one else loses; if we overcome one set of obstacles, there are still others waiting to be conquered in the future. However, some people can’t seem to keep this concept in mind when they think about personal victories or accomplishments that require the help of other people in order to succeed. Instead of being happy for someone when they triumph over their struggles, they become upset that there isn’t any room left at the top for them too — even though their success didn’t come at anyone else’s expense!
We all have limitations
Every person has limitations in life. Whether that be physical, mental, or emotional. It’s important to know these limitations and work around them so you can find success. When someone else is successful, it doesn’t mean you have lost because of the other person’s success. You both overcame your own limitations and succeeded in different ways.
Why success doesn’t mean someone else has to lose
Success is a relative term. We define success as accomplishing what we set out to do, and in the process, someone else might lose. However, this isn’t a bad thing because it’s part of the game. To win at chess, you have to outsmart your opponent. When you win at chess, does that mean that your opponent automatically loses? No! You just won because you were better than them. If they had been better than you, then they would have won instead of you.
How to overcome our limitations
Success is a tricky word. It means different things to different people. For some, it could mean making a lot of money; for others, it could mean having a rewarding family life; and for others still, it might be being healthy. Whatever your version of success, one thing’s for certain — success doesn’t come without overcoming our limitations. And while many people believe that achieving success means someone else has to lose, the reality is that when we win, no one else loses.
