Whether you like it or not, life is one big competition.

You can either choose to compete for the life you want...

Or you can choose to sit on your hands, hoping that someone will just come along and give it to you.

The truth is this...

The real world is only going to reward the people who go out and put in the work.

The internet may try to tell you that winning is a horrible, selfish thing...

But that couldn't be further from the truth.

Winning should be encouraged and celebrated ... because when you win in your life, you are paving the way for other people to win in theirs.

So quit putting in the minimal amount of effort to make ends meet in your life...

Play the game, and play to win.

Society Doesn’t Want You To Win

One of the biggest issues I see in the world today is how much we celebrate mediocrity…

That's something that should never be celebrated.

An entire generation is being taught that “it’s okay if you don’t win as long as you did your best”.

Is it really?

What do you think would happen to an employee that "tried their best" and lost the company millions of dollars?

They'd probably lose their job.

What do you think would happen to a football player that "tried their best", but fumbled the ball every time they touched it?

They'd lose their spot on the team.

This is the same reason why trophies for participating or getting 13th place should be wiped off the face of the earth.

While I’m sure they were created with good intentions to help build confidence in our youth…

We should be teaching them how to win instead.

We have to let them taste failure...

We have to let them understand what it’s like to lose...

Otherwise, there is nothing incentivizing them to win ... until it’s too late and they are sent out into the real world, where there ARE winners and losers.

True confidence is built through putting in the work that it takes to win on a day by day basis.

All we are doing is building a generation of people who are entitled, lazy, and confused about what it really takes to win and be happy in life.

You Have To Earn Your Wins

No matter how much you complain, kick, and scream, you will never be handed anything in life by anyone.

Life isn’t fair.

You don't deserve anything.

The only way you’re going to make life “fair” is by putting in the work and earning your wins.

This mindset of what's fair and not fair is the reason why most people struggle their entire lives.

These people never connect the dots and realize that their life sucks because they put in the minimum amount of effort just to skid by.

If they actually wanted a great life, they would approach every day with an urgent and relentless attitude.

Always remember...

Losers get nothing…

Winners get what they want.

You can earn everything you want in your life if you play to win and push yourself to start dominating the competition.

Why You Should Play To Win

Do you care about your friends?

Do you care about your family?

Do you care about your future?

Then you need to play to win in your life.

Succeeding in life is the best thing you can do for yourself and the people around you.

By winning, you are setting an example of what it’s like to be happy, have confidence, and actually reach one's goals.

Not only are you encouraging and inspiring the people around you to fulfill their potential, you’re also able to serve people in a much more impactful way than you ever could otherwise.

You’ll have the skills…

You’ll have the connections…

You’ll have the wealth…

You’ll have the platform…

You’ll have a much greater ability to serve those around you because of what you’ve been able to build through your journey.

By having monetary success, you will be able to leave a much bigger footprint on the world if you use your money to make the world a better place.

A $20,000 donation is much more significant than a $20 donation.

Winning is the most noble thing you can do in life.

Play To Win In Your Life

If everything you did today could dictate the life you live tomorrow…

You would work extremely hard and make sure to win.

While your actions today aren't going to reap results immediately...

They will in due time.

So why not act with a sense of urgency, passion, and enthusiasm to win every day?


Nobody is going to give you a reward for just living and participating...

Play to win, because once your life flies by…

You’re going to wish you did.
