We live in a world where we are not only encouraged but expected to be first. First in line, first to be picked for the team, first one to finish the race in work or play. Our egos are primed to be first. Being first sets us apart and gives the feeling of dominance. When we are first, we can shine in our efforts, skills, and achievements…isn’t that all that matters in today’s world? We are taught at a very young age to be proficient and remain first or as close to first as we can, win the praise and esteem of others. As we age this is what makes us successful and provides us with a comfortable satisfying life.
