Denis Waitley, an American motivational speaker and writer, and a best selling author preach about ‘winners’ in society:
“The winners in life think constantly in terms of I can, I will, and I am. Losers, on the other hand, concentrate their waking thoughts on what they should have or would have done, or what they can’t do.”
This man, which I do not know much about, has authored 16 books and has released hundreds of audio lectures to boost confidence and self-esteem to people that think, well they are, ‘losers’ in the society. He is probably a good man, but he is also one of the ‘winners’ within the world economy, and benefits from other individuals being categorized as ‘losers’. His income and well being is dependent on the fact that the society always will divide winners form losers, successful form the unsuccessful, is one humans victory based on another humans failure? Is that how we measure winners?
Winners in the global world economy are in my head associated with greed and stinginess, bit harsh? Well maybe… But that’s my opinion. Look at this image:
This is the ‘losers’ of the global economy.
Do you think he ‘concentrate his waking thoughts on what he should have or would have done, or what he can’t do’?
What global world economy exclude is the fact that not everyone has the opportunities to succeed economically, and be involved in the global economy. As Donald Trump said in The Apprentice: ‘Everything in life is luck’. Why does the global economy have to increase the gap between winners and losers? One thing is the eager to succeed, but why does that have to involve exploitation of, as mentioned earlier on this blog, other humans? I do not have the answer to that, but I know that regardless this will continue to happen, we all know it and even if we are not aware of it we are all using the outcome of this exploitation at some level.
Do we need to have this structure of successful and non-successful people in the world economy?
Would it be possible for global happiness if everyone received the same goods and services?
I know the answer to that, even me with my socialist spirit and my tiny-tiny communist view on certain things, know that this is not possible in the world economy. But it would be a great thought wouldn’t it?
So if you don’t think you can make a change globally, just keep this in mind:
I believe we are ‘winners’ and privileged, we are the future of the global economy, pence by pence, use them wise.
