Not My Rat Race

I work not because I have to. I work because I want to work and I love to work.

Wikipedia defined Rat Race as a term that used for an endless, self-defeating or pointless pursuit. It conjures up the image of the futile efforts of a lab rat trying to escape whilst running around a maze or in a wheel. In an analogy to the modern city, many rats in a single maze run around making a lots of noise bumping into each other, but ultimately achieve nothing (meaningful) either collectively or individually.

Don't let negative thoughts pollute our mind.

This world is a strange place. Our mind is even more strange. It programmes to what we want it to be. So, if you think you are in the rat race, then you are. The only difference between Optimist and Pessimist is the former "Sticks To Principle".

Honestly, I could be in the rat race in many angles I look at myself - BUT I refuse to accept the norm.
