    Default What do you think makes a person a winner?

    What makes a person a winner, in your opinion?

    That tends to be rather subjective.

    Honestly, anyone who has the courage to wake up everyday and face the world.
    I realize how corny that sounds, but it's true.

    Anyone who continually does the right thing, and never gives up.

    In life? Well, if you're asking it as a world view kind of question, I'd figure it's probably the people with the most fame, money, power, blah, blah, blah. If your asking it on just an individual level, then I think if you like your life, you're a winner. As simple as that. It Shouldn't really matter one iota what anyone else thinks of your life. It's not theirs. They're not living it. Fuck 'em. Let them decide if their own life is a winning life.

    I'd like to believe that being a moral person and having principles counts towards that.

    I'd say its someone who can pay the bills, stay out of jail and not hurt people.

    Being able to put off easy pleasures for future greater ones is also a big part of it. Doing alot of drugs/hanging out with bad people and dropping out og school are all small pleasures. Dealing with all the bullshit, making it to college, getting out and having a nice apartment/house, good job, lots of money and a stable future is a much greater pleasure.

    If they are consistently happy.

    There can be millionaires out there who are miserable with their lives.
    And there can be people living in the woods in a cabin who have an awesome life.

    I consider someone a winner if they are happy, and able to sustain that happiness.
    Someone mentioned drugs, and I don't consider someone a winner if they utilize
    drugs to fuel a short-term happiness. That's no different than a millionaire buying
    a new car every week to make themselves happy. It's not real, and it's not
    sustainable.

    What if I utilize drugs to fuel short-term intense happiness, inter-spaced with medium-term general happiness? =P

    Drugs are a hobby, not a solution to a sucky life or attitude.

    Yeah, I was referring to people who use more addictive drugs on a regular basis.
    Like daily.
    So they might feel happy as hell due to the drug,
    but a mental state is not true accomplishment.

    Now someone living a happy life, through whatever means they choose, even drugs,
    is better than someone living a miserable life without them.

    But the question is what makes someone a "winner".
    And to me, a winner is someone who accomplishes things,
    contributes in some way, and creates their own cool life, reality,
    environment, and shares it with others...

    Someone getting high in an alley or staying home stoned all day long
    isn't accomplishing anything. They might be happy, but I don't see
    them as a "winner".

    I spend almost every waking hour on the highly addictive psychoactive drug 1,3,7-trimethyl-1H-purine-2,6(3H,7H)-dione. There's a 100 gram zip bag of the crystalline white powder lying in sight next to my computer monitor right now. =D

    I wondered where you'd been.

    An unwillingness to externalize blame.

    The determination to pursue resonant interests even when (and perhaps especially when) they seem like a bad idea.
