43. If you continue to look the other way when the other side cheats, you are a fool not to

recognize that you are going to lose.

Just this weekend my friend shared a learning experience with me. She was in high school and they were voting for class captain, or maybe it was team captain of a sports team. She lost by one. The person who counted the votes went up to her and told her, if you aren't going to vote for yourself, you don't deserve to win.

Why that's so eye-opening is that most of us who grew up in households where our parents were public-servants would have had difficulty voting for ourselves. We are taught from a very young age to be selfless. Truly selfless.

We learn these lessons the hard way.
