From an early age we are taught to excel, be better than the other guy...be supreme...at times run over the other person in order to get ahead. We learn to be separate...break away from the pack and be rewarded with trophies, accolades, money and jealousy. We are glad others are envious because it shows we are the best. You know where that ultimately leads us? Isolated and alone. It is wonderful to have talent and achieve, and I'm not saying do not create and develop your gifts, but shutting ourselves off from people who all possess talent in some way is NOT good. I may have abilities different from yours but that does not make me better than you. The sooner I realize that the sooner I get along with others and stop putting me first. The world is a better place for that.
