Complacency and competition. Let's reflect a bit on these two diametrical terms. One who is complacent is not focused on the present moment. He has experienced success in the past and, being content with the current reality, drifts his attention to other matters. Meanwhile, there is a challenge lurking in the current reality, one that merits attention. Complacency is a danger in all areas of life. We often hear about in sports. For instance, the Cubs, having clinched the division, could grow complacent. This could hurt them in the playoffs. (Could...hopefully it won't!)
Then there's competition. One who competes is focused on the present moment. He takes his current situation very seriously. He wants to succeed, appreciates that his opponent stands in the way of that success, and therefore acts boldly. He expends himself, whereas the complacent person reserves himself. The Bears compete...well, at least they should.
