The disadvantage game

When we disadvantage others to get ahead, we disadvantage ourselves.  Many will decry the notion that every person has some kind of art to bring into the world, but what do they offer instead, what’s their advantage in believing that?:

Art isn’t only a painting.  Art is anything that’s creative, passionate, and personal.  An artist is someone who uses bravery, insight, creativity, and boldness to challenge the status quo.  Art is a personal gift that changes the recipient.  The medium doesn’t matter.  The intent does.  Art is a personal act of courage, something one human does that creates change in another.”*
