The main difference between being competitive and being inspired is that competition thrives on defeating & destroying another by any means , any way. The lack of conscience is normal. On the contrary , being inspired is the virtue of a truthful heart that likes and appreciates something and doesn’t necessarily imitate it. You feel happier when the person who inspires you improves compared to the competitive mind that feels defeated. That is when the idea of making plans to inflict pain for the pleasure of doing it seeds. Isn’t it beautiful to lose sometimes when winning requires falling that low ?
Because, when a flower is crushed , it leaves its fragrance behind. Because , every power that leads someone towards destruction might not necessarily have the strength of nurturing and nourishing. Most often it doesn’t.
