Losing sucks. Everybody wants more winning in their lives. But for the aspiring Stoic, this poses a problem, a problem of interpretation. You want to win and you want to be a force of good at the same time, right? I ask: Can you be a winner and a good man at the same time? What about other people? Shouldn’t I care about them too? Let them win as well?
