This article encourages one to not be lazy, but to do the physical and mental work in order to create a better world for all of us.


You Must Always Try to Put Yourself and the Others Around You in a Better Position to Win in the Game of Life!


Are there winners and losers in the game of life? Is it really possible to put yourself in a better position to win in the game of life? Is it possible to put others in a better position to win in the game of life? Urrr!!! I have all these questions and life seems so confusing sometimes. I wonder if I should just listen to that someone who once told me not to worry myself over all this confusing stuff because life was all-random anyways, and none of it really mattered…

If this person is wrong and it isn’t random, and you really can put yourself and others in a better position to win in the game of life, then why would you want to do this for others? If others are winning in the game of life, does it mean that I’m losing? I mean, aren’t there winners and losers in the game of life? So if they win, then I lose, right?

Urrr, all these questions! I’m still confused and I don’t even think I can lead myself, let alone, others.

Wait a minute. I just had an epiphany. I’ve learned somewhere that if you ask the right questions then eventually the right answers will surface. Maybe asking myself all these questions is a good thing. Maybe we have all been following the wrong paradigm in this game of life; that we all seem to see as a competition. Maybe it’s not a contest after all. There doesn’t have to be winners and losers. I think we can all cooperate and win a better, higher quality of life for all of us.

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, and all the boats rise and fall with the tide, okay? The point is: helping each other out is the answer to us all rising together rather than undermining each other, and all of us falling together and all of us failing to live up to our true potential as individuals and a society. Helping each other is the key to us all stepping up our game!

I imagine this cooperative winning probably goes back somehow to planning. We all need to stop being mentally lazy and invest the mental energy to plan out our winning cooperative strategy for this game called life. In addition, everyone also needs to stop letting the human fear of scarcity control us. We all need to realize that there is enough for all of us. Every one of us can help every other one of us to do what we have to do. If we do this we will all be in a better position to rise up and to win in this game of life. Now I would call that real leadership, wouldn’t you?

Do your part and don’t be afraid. With some planning, love, and commitment to creating a better and higher quality of life for yourself and others we can all do this together cooperatively. Finally put to rest the crazy notion that it’s all random. Now teens, go learn, lead and lay the way to a better world for all of us. Thanks in advance.
