You hear more and more these days that it’s not important whether we win or lose, but that it’s all about how we play the game. Many people in this camp will tell you that it’s bad to keep score because someone will feel bad and develop poor self esteem if they lose. One the other side, you see people talk about how important it is to win, and that nothing else matters. “Do whatever it takes” they say, and “failure is not an option.”

Are either of these correct, or can there possibly be truth in the middle? I believe  the middle ground is where we should be, and that it is important to realize this if we want success in our life, and in that of our whole society.

Not long ago one my good friends  told me something that should have shocked me more than it did. He said that his son was told in school that it is wrong to try to win, that it’s all about having fun and playing nice with others. They don’t keep score in their games. I was told the same thing by my nephew who goes to a completely different school.

This sounds good on the surface; we want to be having fun and we definitely should play nice. But think about what this really teaches our children; the future leaders in our society.

Leadership And Liberty

It’s important to learn as much as we can on the concepts of freedom, because if we don’t understand what it is and where it came from, we might as well say goodbye; we won’t see it being taken away a little piece at a time.

One of my biggest passions over the past two years has been the concept of freedom. I have always believed that people should be free to do as they wish as long as they aren’t hurting others, but have learned so much about the concepts of freedom that although my core values remain the same, many of my views have changed.

There are two sources of information that I have found to really help me understand what it means to be free, and that shows us how we can impart this information to others; helping to promote a free and prosperous society.

Quebec tuition hike protestAre the students who are ‘striking’ in Quebec right or wrong in demanding to not have to pay more for school?  With everything that has happened, it is not really important who is right on that topic. What is important to understand is the actions of the students; what it does to individuals and how it infringes upon their freedoms.

If your interested in who is right when it comes to the tuition increases, There is a lot of information available on those ideas through the Austrian school of economics, and so I will not bring up those ideas here.

Regardless of whether or not the students or taxpayers should pay, their actions are wrong. The idea of a strike with today’s laws, goes against the freedom of individuals in society.

 Check out what Chris Brady, one of the top leadership gurus in the world had to say:

The Mental Fitness Challenge: We’ve all heard about physical fitness programs since time immemorial. Nearly everyone has a product or program designed to help people get and maintain their fitness. Some of these are quite excellent. However, our physical condition is subservient to our mental condition. In other words, in life, to get and stay physically fit, one must ultimately become mentally fit. This applies in all the categories in which we live out our lives, such as finances, relationships, and the like. If we are not thinking correctly in these areas, aka “mentally fit,” then we will not have any real sustainable fitness in those areas.

economy

If you are new to the subject, this article will be for you. You will find no complicated formulas or theories here, just a few basic concepts. There will be some in depth explanations and examples through the embedded links for those who want to pursue the concepts further.

What is Economics?

Contrary to popular belief, you need no understanding of math to understand economics; logic and reason on the other hand can be of vital importance.

Economics is about choices. It is looking at the choices of what you or someone else does with your time and money. It also involves who is best to make these choices. It is about how people act and interact, which leads to how wealth is created and maintained. It is about incentives.
