Meaning of the Idiom
zheng xian kong hou（like hot cakes）
During the spring and autumn period，Zhao Xiangzi had been learning chariot driving from Wang Yuqi.
Before long, Zhao Xiangzi contested with Wang Yuqi. Zhao Xiangzi changed horses three times and lost three times. Then he reproached Wang Yuqi for not having taught him all the techniques.
Wang Yuqi said, “The most important thing in driving a chariot is to coordinate the body of the horse with the chariot and pay all your attention to controlling the horse. Now when you lagged behind, you just wanted to keep up with me. When you were in the lead, you were afraid of being caught up by me. In a driving contest, there is always someone who lags behind, and someone who is in the lead. If you pay all your attention on me, how could you control your hoarse well? This is the reason why you lost.”
