Zero Sum Games

It is commonly believed that in order for one person to win, someone else has to lose.

This is simply not true.

There are a gazillion examples, in life, where every side wins.

Just ask the giver who ends up receiving far more than she ever parted with.

Or the once defeated who later returns to claim a medal.

I can even take the opposite side of a winning trade and turn it into a gain – eventually.

It seems to me that those who believe life to be a zero sum game clearly underestimate the value of time and patience.
