Compete to Include

Is inclusion possible in a competitive world?  For me the most rewarding competition is that which is won not at the expense of another, but one that increases value or understanding to those who participate. It is cliché to say I am in competition with myself, yet I am.  I am trying it be stronger, faster, better each day.  To be more patient, less angry, and give others a sense of inclusion.  How is this competition?  Maybe it is the focus.  I think of runners racing. Sure there is only one winner, but the competition made them all faster.  Think of the generous winner who celebrates in everyone’s growth. Now think of the last place runner taking pride in the best time they ever ran.
