Are You Winning?

When I Help Others Win, I Win.

Our son Josh joined some other kids over the weekend volunteering at a Special Olympics event.  He came home wearing a bright yellow t-shirt and an even brighter smile.

When I asked him who the winners were his response was heartfelt, “Everyone there.”

“The purpose in life is not to win. The purpose in life is to grow and share. When you come back to look on all you have done in life, you will get more satisfaction from the pleasure you have brought into other people’s lives than you will from the times that you outdid and defeated them.”  Rabbi Harold Kushner

I agree with the Rabbi.  As we continue to grow, we grow in our ability to share.  Hopefully we are sharing goodness.  As we become more aware of others needs’ we will find far more satisfaction in their gains and successes than we ever thought possible.

Today, I play for the win.  Not mine, but theirs.  Because when they win, I win.

Who will you help win today?
