Competition may be fun and even necessary, but this doesn’t mean it’s fun and necessary all the time.
Is a flower in competition with another flower over which appears more beautiful? Of course not, both bloom with no thought of the other.
It’s with this mindset that we should do a lot of our work–especially work that revolves around helping others by solving problems. “Blooming” in this context is working hard and bringing value to the organization. It doesn’t matter whether other “flowers” are thriving or withering; generosity, compassion, and honesty are required everyday.
It’s important to note that blooming is rewarded more often than not.
