Are You Running the Wrong Race in Life

There was a young boy who was very athletic and obsessed with winning. One day, there was a running competition and the boy participated, along with two other boys. Many people came to watch the race and among them was a wise old man. When the race started, the boy ended up winning and the crowd cheered and celebrated. The wise old man remained expressionless. The boy felt proud of his victory.

Another race was held and the boy once again emerged as the winner, with the crowd cheering and celebrating. The wise old man still showed no emotion. The boy asked the old man if he could participate in another race and the old man agreed, presenting two new challengers – an old lady and a blind man. The boy won the race, but the crowd was silent and did not show any enthusiasm for his victory. The boy asked the old man why this was the case.

The old man then told the boy to race again, but this time to finish the race together with the old lady and the blind man. The boy thought about it and then joined hands with the other two participants, walking slowly to the finish line. The crowd cheered and celebrated once again, and the wise old man smiled gently. The boy asked the old man why the crowd was cheering and the old man replied that in this race, the boy had won much more than just a competition and that the crowd was not cheering for any one winner.
