Competition is great, but it does have a price. Our minds might have been at unrest, but it really depends on which environment you are in.
The challenge is somehow simple: can you isolate yourself (your mind) even if you are in the hyper-competitive environment? Can you recognize a moment when you are walking through a park and notice that spring is awakening (for instance you smell wildflowers)?
Being able to catch these opportunities makes our lives wonderful. In a way you can see a modesty — nature is showing us that she was there before us and will be also there when we leave this world. And by acknowledging this we might feel grateful/peaceful because then we can say that things are as they are.
