Whose View?

Parshat Shelach Lacha (Numbers 13:1-15:41)

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/torah_portion/article/whose_view_20060623

Too often, we become discouraged from pursuing our dreams because of the opposition we face. We assess our chances of success based on the strength of our competitors or enemies. If we would only focus more on our own passions and ambitions, on our own strength of conviction, we would get much farther in life. A very successful person once told me, "I've never worried about the competition; the only person I'm competing with is myself, to see if I can rise to my potential."
