Parents always have high hopes their children will have a bright future. New parents hear it all the time from relatives and strangers, “One day, he’s going to be President” or “She’ll be so smart, she’ll be a brilliant surgeon.” Parents don’t really believe it, but somewhere deep down they hope that, just maybe, it’s true.

A lot of times we are told things as children that we just accept and don’t challenge, only to find out later that they tricked us. One of my favorites is the saying, “It’s not whether you win or lose that matters, it’s how you play the game”. No, really, winning matters.
