    Secrets of Getting Ahead in Life

    By Dr. Mercola

    This is a bit of an unusual post, in that, this is not a link from an Internet site but an article I wrote.

    I have been running since 1968 but have only competed in road races and cross-country, and I've never raced in a 10K event on the track. Lapping is a phenomenon associated with track distance races in which the competitors are mismatched.

    Typically, in track, this is the 10,000-meter event. Toward the end of the race, the faster runners have an advantage over the slower runners that is greater than the length of the circular track. They pass those runners at the tail end of the pack.

    If a spectator came late to the event, he might conclude that the slower runners are quite fast. After all, they are right behind the leaders. Yet, they are so far behind that they are completely out of the running.

    They will go through the motions by staying in the race for sportsmanship's sake, but they might as well save their energy. They have no chance of winning.

    Life is like this too. It is a long race. The faster runners who possess the greatest endurance will lap the competition. It may appear that the losers are still in contention, but they aren't.
