In game and economic theory, a zero-sum game is a mathematical representation of a situation where a participant’s gain is balanced by the losses of another participant. In common terms, this simply means that for every winner, there is a loser. The concept that there must be a loser for every winner is reinforced often through politics, sporting events, and even promotions that are handed out in the workplace. If someone is gaining, it must be at the expense of someone losing.
The zero-sum game, or “there must be a loser for every winner” thinking permeates many people’s thoughts on business as well. This is unfortunate as there are countless opportunities created in modern business that produce true win-win situations for all parties involved. In game theory, a nonzero-sum game―or a win-win game―is a situation by which cooperation or group participation leads to all participants benefiting. Examples abound of win-win situations in the areas of real estate and stock trading. Real estate networks and clubs often share information and pass on deals to one another. Wholesaling is a classic situation where two parties can benefit on the same deal. A stock market trader who networks with other traders passes on trade setups to their counterparts and both can profit on the same trade. The sharing of information, building a network, and working with others creates an environment where everyone in the network can benefit and profit by the contributions of others.
The classic expression “No man is an island unto himself” by John Donne has not only philosophical meaning to all of us, but true practical application in one’s daily business affairs as well. Yes, one can stubbornly move forward relying on their intellect, will, and talents and still succeed; however, by realizing that life and business are not a zero-sum game they can expand their network of opportunities and become involved in situations that are truly win-win for all parties involved.
Creating a Win-Win Opportunity – Rich Dad Education Affiliate Marketing Program
Creating a win-win opportunity requires that the objectives of two or more parties are be identified and a situation be created that allows both parties to achieve their objectives. For the stock trader, they share their information on a trade setup based on the hope that their counterpart will reciprocate with their own information on later trades that they identify. In this scenario, both parties have an objective of making money and the sharing of information creates a situation where both parties can achieve their objective.
