Wanting Less Than Best
Wanting something is as basic a human experience as you can get. When we were babies, we wanted to be fed at all hours of the night. Not best for our parents, but we cried when that want wasn’t met. Good parents shape that behavior out of us by saying no to our wants so that we can learn to recognize what should happen when what we want isn’t best for ourselves or others. All too often now, we encounter that poor unfortunate soul that had misguided parents that never really said no to them. The result is the same as an infant. They may not cry like a baby, but they do make life as inconvenient as they can for others until they get what they want. Unfortunately, these people’s parents raised terrible teammates. Don’t recruit them.
