Is it really possible to put yourself in a better position to win in the game of life? If so, how are we supposed to create this position of a winner and successful leader when we don’t know what to do or where to start?

Wait a minute… Wait a minute… A thought is coming to me… I’ve learned somewhere that if you ask the right questions then eventually the right answers will surface. Maybe we’ve been asking ourselves the wrong questions. Maybe there doesn’t have to be winners and losers in life. Maybe we can all cooperate and win a better, and higher quality of life for all of us.

Let’s picture corks in an ocean… Can you see it? When the tide comes in, all of us corks rise together, and when the tide goes out all of us corks fall together. What? You don’t want to be called a cork? Okay. You’re a boat now. Can you picture all the boats rising and falling with the tide? Great! The point is: helping each other out is the answer to us all positioning ourselves to rise together as winners in this game of life!

I imagine that positioning ourselves for cooperative winning starts with planning. We all need to stop being mentally lazy and invest the mental energy to plan out our winning cooperative strategy. In addition, everyone also needs to stop letting the human fear of scarcity control us. We all need to stop hoarding and realize that there is enough for all of us. Every one of us can help every other one of us to become more successful. If we do this we will all be in a better position to rise up and to win! Now I would call that real leadership, wouldn’t you?

So go ahead. Don’t be afraid. Just do it. Put yourself, and the others around you in a better position to win in the Game of Life!

Now, please share how you plan to position yourself to win in the game of life.

 

Thanks for your time,
