For those who spectate, life is a zero sum game. You either win or your lose.
For those who compete, there is no such thing as zero sum. Even if you, so call, lose as a competitor, you have an opportunity to learn. If you are competing you are winning something . . . the chance to understand yourself, for there is nothing like competition to let you know what you are made of.
If you compete in a spectator paid profession . . .
Getting into a career that requires spectators to pay you is, well, ironic,
Watching sports is frustrating.
