We, humans, love to win. But we can choose what winning means to us. Eating a hundred sausages is a win for a hotdog eating contestant. Not eating a single sausage is a win for the guy who just started a vegan diet.
Think about what you count as winning. Is it getting the most amount of money, the biggest car, and the most fluffed up job title? Or is it making someone smile because you can, doing what you enjoy for a living, and having more time for your friends and family?
One is easier than the other. One is more positive than the other. One is more likely than the other.
