The Mississippi Beef Cattle Improvement Association (MBCIA) focuses on promoting performance records and encouraging good management practices while cooperating with other like-minded organizations to emphasize the economic importance of beef cattle production in Mississippi. Headquartered in Starkville, Mississippi, the association utilizes Mississippi State University through research and education to promote the beef cattle industry nationally. MBCIA is a member of the national Beef Improvement Federation where S.R. Evans, Jr. from Greenwood, MS served as Past-President in 2005. MBCIA hosted the Beef Improvement Federation annual meeting for the first time in its near forty-year history in Philadelphia, MS in April 2006.
The MBCIA encourages the production and identification of genetically superior animals by purebred breeders and promotes the purchase and use of these animals by commercial producers through various sale offerings.

So you're telling me that the top neurosurgeon in my organization, who made over $1,000,000 last year, is a loser because he chooses to work for someone else? Or the surgeon who did my foot, who probably makes close to $500,000/year, is a loser because he works for a firm that isn't his own? Or Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein who made $23,000,000 last year. Yes, he's the CEO, but technically he works for someone other than himself, so he must be a loser. So, please, tell me how these people are losers because they work for someone else. I'd love to hear it.
For starters I didn't say that, this is what I said, and stand by it 100% "And someone who doesn't care if they lose is a loser." I played sports with quite a few very successful people and only a couple that actually made it by playing a game. And not a single one liked to lose at anything, and as a matter of fact they were leaders and still are. Individual sports teach you to go out and get it, and don't depend on someone else. Team sports teach you how to get along and the need to trust your teammates. Sports are a win win deal for life, show me someone who doesn't want to win and they are losers. And it doesn't matter how much money someone has if their a loser.
You said, and I quote here: Those that play to win are winners, and those that don't care one way or the other usually work for someone else and don't give a darn. And someone who doesn't care if they lose is a loser.
ie, those that work for someone else, essentially are losers b/c they don't care if they win. It does matter how much someone makes. A person making that much money is obviously a go getter, and whether or not they played sports is a moot point. Some of the worst leaders I have ever seen, and worked with, are the most competitive people. Conversely, some of the best leaders I have known refused to play team sports. I know a lot of folks who were pretty good at sports that have turned into losers later in life. Sports will teach some lessons, but without an academic piece, you're still going to end up working in a dead-end job-UNLESS YOU'RE VERY, VERY LUCKY-that won't really pay the bills. My sports background got me zip financially, my education got me everything I own.
