The French writer Anais Nin said it best, "We don't see things as they are, we see things as we are." Our perceptions of reality are distinctly our own. Understanding how we cultivate these perceptions and how others do the same is more determinative of our sense of success or failure and happiness or sadness than perhaps all of our other efforts combined. To understand how to win at the game of life we must first know the rules by which the game is played.
