If you resent those who win the race, you give up a valuable opportunity. You give up the opportunity to learn from their examples.
There are those who win in one area of life, and others who win in other areas of life. If everyone was the best at the very same thing, think of how terribly tedious and predictable things would be.
Just because one person wins, or excels, or achieves, does not mean everyone else loses. Life's victories do not happen in a vacuum, and their valuable consequences reach far beyond those who achieve them.
Choose to be inspired, to learn from, and to catch the positive energy of those who win. Then make use of that energy, and build on it to win in your very own way.
Sincerely celebrate the victories of those who win. For that makes you a winner, too.
