Question: Have you ever felt insufficient?
Answer: Constantly. And it’s a good feeling. If we feel satiated, satisfied, content, then we will never grow, progress, develop.
We need such a need, hunger, inner pain, even shame to push us out of comfort zone.
And this is most effective in a closed, purposeful, mutually supportive, mutually complementing environment, where all mutually committed to the same, common goal.
There they can help to increase each other’s sensitivity and constructively recruit the instinctive attributes of positive envy, jealousy, desire for respect for this purpose.
Then we can develop a healthy competition where we don’t mind being “defeated”, as it increases or hunger, motivation to try harder, move further, always beyond comfort zone, inherent limits.
