- Many of us might say we are not competitive, and yet in this paradigm we all play a game called compete-for-survival. What happens when the volume of fear is turned up like this? When it becomes win or die? Use or be used? How much of your motivation is driven by this circumstance? Do you choose what you would truly want to do with your life? Or do you have circumstances superimposed on you in ways you do not want? Can the volume be turned back down? Perhaps an entire order of magnitude? Can we transcend compete-for-survival? Choose to play a different game in life? What other games are available for us to choose? What do those paradigms look like?
