WINNING


WINNING IS….

HARVESTING an attitude of loving tolerance.

PATIENT and kind.

LIVING fully in each moment, even in the face of adversity.

PROTECTING and building trust with, those around you.

HELPING those who cannot do for themselves.

APPRECIATING the fact that you CAN help.

DOING the next right thing, especially at your own expense.

WINNING IS not….

ENVIOUS, bragging and proud.

BELITTLING others, or seeking to make yourself look better than them.

RECEIVING what you want. Losers suffer from self-will run riot.

ANGRY and vengeful, holding grudges against others.

WEALTH of material things, or even the appearance of such.

    Well put. We each face the daily battle of selfishness vs selflessness, love vs hate, and empathy toward our fellows rather than apathy. I hear alot of apathy, so I always try to find and applaud empathy wherever I find it, and I find it here.

  6. Isn’t this patterned after a biblical verse in the new testament, Corithians I think.

    • Yes Bruce, I didn’t hide it very well.
      The reason I wrote this whole thing, I dunno….I been watching Sheen’s war on whoever, whatever it is….and I’m thinking’ to myself, “Self, this guy’s whole attitude of selfishness bothers me.”
      So, me. I’m taking the softer easier way here by not matching his rant with another (mediocre) rant.

      I hope someday Charlie gets a new definition of “winning”!
