Success at Any Price?

I consider it a really complex issue that must be treated from several points of view. The initial response that probably would come to us, is that getting success at any price should never be the goal. It is much better get success when respecting the main life values.

Certainly I think that the universal principle that a father teaches to his child or a teacher teaches to their students is also clear, the first things in life are the values ​, and the accomplishment of those values can ​​lead you to the success.

But, does that happens in most of cases in the real world? Can we find any excuse that lead us to skip the values ​​and achieve success at any price?

Actually in the real world everything it's allowed, sadly we find that success is priceless, success makes enemies even to friends, success changes us, success is a fragrance that sometimes is like a drug, we loose reality and we get addicted to it.

We can analyze different success situations, as I told in the beginning of this article, but one easy situation to analyze is what happens in sports, such as football (soccer).

What is better in sports? To win without having a good image, or not win as much as expected but been identified by your values?. Actually is possible to maintain your values trying to win (trying to get success). There were another life period where things looks like to be like that, values where more important that success, but today it seems that times have changed and the sport also points to the success as a main value, even if this way leads them to loose their original values.

We should stop that, it is a bad image for the new generations, because they will grow with wrongs values, not giving priority to respect, education, citizenship ...

Do we want this for our future generations? I certainly do not. Although I am a very competitive guy, I like to think that I'm a good loser and for me it will never worth to win at any price, and what is more important, I'll never teach my children that winning is above the main values.

Increasingly our society is going this way, and this is one of the dangers of this society. Let's all try to give preference to the good values ​​among all, we will not change the world, but we'll feel much better.

Success is ephemeral, our values ​​can be eternal, and getting and keeping them should not be complicated. Let's go for it.
