The Race Of Life

The Race Of Life

The race of life?
What is the race of life?
The struggle to be successful
That innate drive by all mortals to live a fulfilled life here on earth is the race of life!
Are all mortals equipped to run the race of life?
Yes and No!
Yes in the sense that our creator, the Supreme Being has endowed all mortals with all the mental and physical attributes to run a successful race at birth!
No in the sense that the world to which every mortal is born is harsh and fraught with a lot of “landmines” “dangers” “potholes” which may slowdown, change the direction of the racetrack or totally abort the race being run by every mortal.
These “potholes” “landmines” and dangers may include wrong choice of marriage partner, death of ones parents at infancy or at birth, inability to pursue or get qualitative formal or informal education, life threatening or prolonged illness,war,strife,famine,irresponsible governments who do not care about the welfare of the people e.t.c The list is not exhaustive
Is the race of life for the swift? Or better still , are those who have been able to circumvent, dodge or NOT even encounter these “potholes”, “landmines” and “dangers” more successful in life than those who have encountered or fallen into these “potholes”, “landmines” and “dangers” of life?
The lesson life is teaching all mortals is that this is not necessarily true as the race of life has shown that some start the race well and finish badly while some start the race badly and finish well, indeed the race of life is NOT OFTEN FOR THE SWIFT! but for those who can endure ,hence the race of life may be likened to a MARATHON RACE or an ENDURANCE TREK!
