Context.

Why you can win.
In this “game” and real life, you can win and have a surviving and thriving future. To “win” that future, keep in mind that you are different with a different future already beginning. Whether that future appears bad or good, you can do better. To build a better future, use Thrive strategy, tactics and actions that have been used successfully at the personal level and on larger scales (community, country). They can work for you. As they have for others, this strategy can help you win by building, achieving and sustaining a surviving and thriving future.
 
Why you must win.
You must win and have a surviving and thriving future. You must do better whether your future appears bad or good. Why? Even if you have a good future, you are not fully thriving, are not likely to be fully thriving in the future, and are still facing uncertainties about the long term future. You want and need a surviving and thriving future because your future is endangered and because of our human need to survive and desire to thrive. What drives a person is our human need to survive and desire to thrive now and in a sustainable future. Further, because people (past and present) have broken some part of your world and endangered its future, you and others (present and future) must help fix what is broken and build a survivable and thriving future.
 
Key to winning the “game” is the strong desire by you to move from your current vulnerabilities through and beyond surviving to a sustained thriving future.
