Super Bowl weekend . . . thinking about a victory

Are you making plans for the Super Bowl weekend? Although I can be quite excited about high school sports, I’ve never been able to muster interest in professional sports except from a psychological point of view.

I’ve learned that how we play on the field or court is probably how we play out our lives. A study of the personality profiles of 15,000 athletes showed a low interest in receiving support and concern from others, a low need to take care of others.

It may do me well to reflect today on how I play a game, how I have fun. When do I have more fun:  when I compete to win or when I cooperate to make sure we all have fun? When am I at my best: when I develop my skills or help others develop theirs?  Do I want victory for me, or do my relationships grow because I want what’s best for another?
