Believing you're smarter than others can lead to justifying making a living off of their work, while excess capital from positive-sum games is being harvested by zero-sum game players, leading to societal degradation and financial crises.
Believing that you are smarter than others can lead to a slippery slope of justifying making a living off of other people's work and lack of empathy in extreme gaming.
The excess capital created by those playing positive-sum games is being harvested by zero-sum game players, leading to societal degradation and financial crises when the latter group gains too much power.
Legacy matters: focus on leaving a positive impact, setting a good example, and choosing positive-sum situations in life.
Legacy is what makes people feel good about themselves, and many rich people are unhappy because they are concerned about their legacy and realize that making money and making an impact are not the same.
Think about the legacy you want to leave and the lesson you want to teach your children when dealing with problems and imagine what advice you would give to someone else in the same situation.
Be a positive influence by setting a good example for your children or employees and strive to contribute to society in a positive way, as material possessions and vices do not lead to true happiness.
Choose positive-sum situations in life, whether it's a startup, job, or relationship, as it will have a better impact on others and pay back in ways you can't imagine.
