Fat Tiger. Is conflict really necessary to better yourself? Liking Star Wars a lot. Got me thinking about the Jedi and Sith. The problem with Sith is they are consumed with power. Addicted to having more power. When you become powerful you want more power and when you have more power you want even more power. But the drive and passion is incredible. But they never take the time to smell the roses. Like Elon Musk, I don't think that guy sleeps. Just work, work, work, work. Drive, drive, drive. Now Jedi on the other hand. What really motivates them? Why would you wake up as a Jedi? To be in the service of others? Like this guy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_of_Assisi But without the Sith would the Jedi be really necessary to exist? Maybe it comes down to push vs pull. Being motivated to have more power or being inspired to help others? Maybe it comes down to inspiration. I think you can be motivated or inspired or both. I'll think about this some more.
