It surely is at the World Cup. The winning team always gets attention; the winning team gets adoration; the winning team is worshiped. Winning seems not the most important thing; it's the only thing. In life, do we also want to win all the time? For some people, yes! They fight, struggle, trap, or simply do whatever it takes to win. Students burn mid-night oil in order to be at the top of the class, whether voluntarily or coercively. Employees work their ass off hoping to be promoted over co-workers. Celebrities strive to be the most popular stars by hook and by crook. Winning is sweet! But look at what we've probably lost when we won. We never enjoy small little things in life; we have less family time; friendship and cordial interpersonal relations becomes unnecessary; our health is deteriorating. We pay so much cost for winning, and we tend to lose the ability to enjoy the process of getting what we long for. Then winning becomes nothing
