What if you are playing your partner at a game of pool and are winning so much that you are humiliating them. You would attampt to fail and miss so that they have a chance of coming back, wouldn't you?
Been there, done that. In this example it's competition. Humility is good, not bad and the fact that you are implying it's negative, shows that you are only seeing one side of the equation. Nope. I do my best and if the person refuses to do the same or cannot handle my best, then that is their problem.
First off, I don't have children. Secondly, I have two nieces which I do play games with and NO I don't take it easy on them. Taking it easy on them, provides them a false sense of accomplishment and it does more damage. Every person, including children need to learn and handle disappointment. If they do not, then they will not learn from the experience.
Have you ever found a loser of a game, still consider it fun?
If so, then you have found a rarely unique individual, such as myself. I have no fear of failing at any game I play, because I learned earlier in my life that I am not going to win everything I play, which means there is something for me to learn from the experience.
I personally, haven't found too many people who have no problem with losing a game, but then again, I haven't found too many people to be consciously active enough to understand their own life either.
It is a trick question to see if you have succeeded at failing or become successful. I don't believe many people deliberately try to fail unless to hitch up with some hot chick in summer school for those who failed.
I have been reflecting recently on the direction that this site has taken, in particular the growing number of people who sign up and then ask 7 days or 14 days later when they will begin making money. Or they ask...
Feel free to try this exercise with me people The idea is that if I post my To-Do list here for wandering eyes to see, maybe I'll get it done and stick by my word to myself? I know it's a long shot but hey...what can it...
