What does this metaphor, “The slowest of the Fastest” mean?
It means very simply this:
We have a choice every moment of every day.
To be positive, or, to not be positive.
Here’s one of life’s invisible truths: Everybody is fighting a hard battle. Everyone. Even the people who appear, on the surface, to have a great (easy) life.
We all have a choice on how we live our lives.
There are two choices:
- To be the fastest of the slowest.
- To be the slowest of the fastest.
On our deathbed, if we are lucky (blessed) to have this moment, we can look back on our lives and say with a peaceful joy, “I gave it my best effort and have no regrets about what I could have, should have or would have done“.
