We live in a world that glorifies "winning." Whether it’s position, power, recognition or acceptance, our goal is to achieve a position of acceptance and worth.

The problem with "position" is that it tends to be based on what other people think, not what really is true. Eric Hoffer, a social philosopher, who won the Presidential Medal of Honor, taught that however much we guard against it, we tend to shape ourselves in the image others have of us. And living our lives in that way comes from a lack of true meaning in one’s own life.
