Spectator or Participant

A spectator watches a performance or is a member of an audience. Benefits:

  • Don't have to train to watch - no effort
  • Don't have to commit to a result - nothing to lose (unless betting)
  • Change teams, sports, performances at a whim - no investment

A participant is someone who takes part in something. Benefits:

  • personal growth - learn new skills
  • sense of accomplishment from completing
  • learn how to handle reversals, lack of progress or defeats
  • learns the power of persistence
  • willingness to try new things for improvement
  • freely learns from others

Are we spectators of Life or participants in Life?
