If Everyone’s Special, Then No One Is

If you always win, what’s the point of the game?

I mean why even keep score, right? And if that’s the logic, why even play?

If you can’t be the best because everybody’s the best, why even try?

This general everybody wins mentality isn’t working. Because of the thought process above. If I get rewarded for doing nothing then why not just do nothing?!

This is why:

In the real world you fail.

In the real world, not everybody gets a trophy.

In the real world the are winners and losers.

And it’s all okay. You will fail. You will lose sometimes. It’s all about what you do with it when you do.

                                                                         What did you learn?

                                                                 What will you do differently?

                         You may not be the best at everything but you can be the best at SOMETHING.

All important lessons that were denied so many of us by this “everybody wins” world we grew up in.

                                                            From Disney/Pixar’s The Incredibles:

                                                                Mom: Everyone’s special, Dash.

                                                    Dash: Which is another way of saying no one is.

If everyone is special, then no one is. Straight truth from our awesome Pixar friends 🙂

It’s okay to fail. It’s also okay to win. Do both. Often.

Happy Tuesday Awesome People!
