Our goal should be to keep improving ourselves, rather than "being the best."
Someone who feels the need to be "the best" should ask himself, "Why do I really have to be better than others? What is so awful if someone else is better than me in any given area?"
People who feel the need to be "the best" often suffer much anxiety. They frequently tell themselves, "If I am not the best, then I am a failure. I am nothing."
There is no basis for this. In ultimate terms, no human can really say who is best. Comparing yourself to anyone else is arbitrary -- so why cause yourself misery by doing so?

Bible Codes Connect Arson in Israel With Nibiru and Messiah [WATCH] Read more at https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/79252/bible-codes-connect-arson-israel-nibiru-messiah-watch/#OfFO44KFqwGEHtJu.99
According to international Bible Codes expert Rabbi Matityahu Glazerson, the fires that have been burning in Israel from Haifa to Jerusalem are "a sign that we are nearing the time for Messiah."
The series of Bible Codes videos, released in quick succession by Rabbi Glazerson, connect the fires with Nibiru, the arrival of the Messiah, and terror.
In the second of two videos, released on November 24, Rabbi Glazerson finds, in the same table, Bible codes for Hamas, haFatah (Mahmoud Abbas's political party, Fatah), terror and mitzitim (arsonists). In addition, he points out that the code for hatzatot (arson) crosses with the code for haAravim (the Arabs).

Rabbi Glazerson often calls the Torah "the blueprint of creation". This point can be seen especially clearly in this table when he points out Bible Codes for srayfot (fires), Israel and Cheshvan 5777 (the Hebrew month and year that corresponds to November 2016). In other words, Bible Codes contain specific details of events that would not happen for thousands of years.
Toward the end of the video, Rabbi Glazerson mentions several times that, according to Kabbalah (Judaism's mystical tradition), there will be many troubles all over the world toward the End of Days. Paradoxically, such troubles reinforce the hope of those waiting. "According to Kabbalah," he teaches, "this is a sign that we are nearing the time for Messiah."
Rabbi Glazerson expanded on the point that constant troubles are a sign of the End of Days. Speaking to Breaking Israel News, he said, "As the Vilna Gaon (a world-renowned Jewish sage from the 18th century) says that, like the birth pangs are frequent before the birth, so are the troubles before Moshiach. And like the darkest night before dawn, so are the troubles before redemption."
This video, connecting the fires and the coming of the Messiah, came short on the heels of another, released November 23, in which Rabbi Glazerson mentions earthquakes, fires and floods as by-products of the dwarf star Nibiru's influence on Earth. He points out the code for Nibiru in the table.
This is significant because the table in this video is based on the Book of Numbers 23-29, which Nibiru expert and End of Days blogger Menachem Robinson points out, "happens to be exactly where the Torah tells us about the Star of Jacob, Nibiru. It is all coming together."
I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not nigh; there shall step forth a star out of Yakov, and a scepter shall rise out of Yisrael, and shall smite through the corners of Moab, and break down all the sons of Seth. Numbers 24:17
Reflecting on the large number of disasters occurring in the world today, Rabbi Glazerson said, "These are all signs before Messiah to bring us to the understanding that the world is not in our hands."
Rabbi Glazerson also points to several codes related to Messiah. This table includes the codes Ben Yishai (son of Jesse, a reference to King David and the lineage of the Messiah), David (King David, of whom the Messiah will be a descendant), Moshiach (Messiah) and Moshiach Ami (the Messiah of My people).
Rabbi Glazerson ends the video with a piece of advice: "Everything which is happening is in the Torah, and therefore keeping the Torah is the only way to bring us Messiah and peace and quiet."

The Most Incredible Image of US Waterways "Flint" celebrates the beauty of Georgia's Flint River. It features three local people – Robin McInvale, Jimmy Miller, and Paul DeLoach– and their special connections to the river.
New technology has allowed geographers to create stunning maps of U.S. river basins. There are 18 major river basins in the continental U.S., with the largest belonging to rivers that feed the Mississippi River.
The color-coded maps make it easy to visualize the magnitude of the basins, which is otherwise rather abstract. Seeing the vast expanse of river basins that cover the U.S., and the interconnectedness among them, it's also clear that rivers make up the fabric of America, each with its own story to tell.
In the short film, "Flint," for instance, you can hear stories of three people and their connection to Georgia's Flint River.
There's Robin McInvale and her story of finding love on the river, Paul DeLoach, a cave diver and co-founder of conservationist group Flint Riverkeeper and Jimmy Miller, who's been fishing in the Flint since he was a boy.
The personal connections to the river are immense and not unique to the Flint. Similar stories can be found nationwide, and the connections aren't only sentimental in nature.
The Flint river, for instance, provides water to more than 1 million people but is at risk from pollution, including runoff from agriculture and industry — another common thread among U.S. rivers.
What Is Upstream Will Travel Downstream
While it's easy to understand the massive effect a large river like the Mississippi has on waters downstream, small streams and wetlands also play an important role in larger downstream waterways. This even includes small streams that only flow after heavy rainfall.
This revelation came from a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) report, which reviewed more than 1,200 peer-reviewed scientific studies.1
The study "unequivocally demonstrates that streams, regardless of their size or frequency of flow, are connected to downstream waters and strongly influence their function."
In addition, wetlands, floodplains and open waters in transitional areas located between land and water ecosystems (known as riparian areas) act as buffers in helping protect downstream waters from pollution.
Wetlands and floodplains not in riparian areas were also found to affect the integrity of downstream waters, even when they lacked surface water connections. "Some potential benefits of these wetlands are due to their isolation rather than their connectivity," the report noted.
The study was particularly important because it helped to define the definition of "waters of the United States" under the Clean Water Act.
Establishing these waters as crucial to protecting waters downstream was then used to establish the Clean Water Rule, which more clearly defines waters protected under the Clean Water Act.
Currently, about 1 in 3 Americans, or 117 million people, get drinking water from streams that are protected under the Clean Water Rule.2
once upon a time we could assume that a Jew would naturally support the survival of the Jewish State. Once upon a time we suspected all Christians of being secret antisemites. Well, those days are gone forever! Here's hoping that President Trump appoints a dedicated Zionist to the post of Ambassador to Israel, and that does not necessarily mean a Jew.
