Our Competitive Life Views

Our Competitive Life Views Tagged with:

Ours is a culture that values success in any venue. Competition and the ideal of ‘winning’ are key in any type of competition and every area and aspect of life is one in which we believe competition takes place. For example, in the arenas of beauty, attractiveness, music, making money, size of house, amount of money, disposable income, talent, athletics…it is clear to all of us that winning is the only acceptable goal. We heap riches and praise on winners, we ignore or ridicule losers. Even being the “most pitiful” is rewarded over being merely “pitiful”. Being America’s Most Greedy is rewarded over being simply greedy. It is almost impossible to engage someone in a conversation about an artist, athlete or other prominent person without comparing their performance to that of another person in the same field- with the clear task of deciding which is better.
