Think carefully about the issue presented in the following excerpt and assignment below: (2012.10)
Some say that high achievers-people who reach their ambitious goals because of their determination and skills-always get ahead at the expense of others. When one political candidate is elected, others are defeated; when someone wins in any kind of competitive event, others lose. But this view of achievers is too negative. By improving the world around them and providing an example for all to follow, achievers benefit others as well as themselves.
