Life is What You Make It: Chapter Three: The Myth About Fair Game Field

Everybody talks about a fair game field. A fair economical situation. A fair political situation. A fair situation in everything.

We all hope so. We all hope that everything is good in this place called world.


But then, a perfect world exists only in our minds, yes?

The world is not fair.  Bill Gates himself has said that.

What we need to do now is to make it a little bit fairer. A little bit brighter for many people. A better world for everyone.


Buffett shows us two basic rules to play the game:

1. All humans are equal. We give help because we want to help, don't ever feel like we give help because we are socially higher than those we give help to.
2. We must acknowledge humbly that we don't know how much we can give, how much that we can do. By this we'll be challenged to do good things more and more.

Buffett also says that help without a name is the purest.

Eventhough the game field is not fair, we must remind ourselves that we have the power to make it better, we have big enough heart to help the others.

Everyone must decide for himself what their true passion is; even if the game field really disserves us. For a better world.
