Survival of the Fittest
Darwin has wrote about the ‘Survival of the Fittest’, I’ve realised its not only that, that is necessary. Those who survive, succeed, get ahead or gain victory are those who have a more need, a want and a must coupled with a passionate desire to reach the goal. I drew the above picture to express a little better.
Two cars racing to the end. Looking at the car slightly ahead, it has been drawn in red to emphasize a fiery passion to reach the goal whereas the other car is a much cooler yellow. Those who have odds in their favour are the ones who keep a keen eye on their opponents or rivals and keep them pushed back. This behaviour can be seen in this art, where the red car is keeping the yellow car pushed back with a subconscious arm.
However, at the same time the red car is also reaching out to the goal with its other arm; keeping a firm watch at the rear and what’s ahead of itself. The foot pushing against the ground denotes a deep yearning to win, as one must also have or give ones self an extra passionate push, more than it thinks it is capable of. Therefore, it’s not just about Survival of the fittest but Survival of the fittest with passion and desire.
This approach deeply applies to my every day life, especially when I am engaged in my favourite sports, such as football and swimming. I see it happening all around the work place, even at charity organisations. Those who passionately want it, get promoted! This picture particularly expresses how my thoughts and feelings take over and bring about this sort of attitude within me when I’m competing.
All is Fair in Love and War
