We may be playing the same game but with very different intentions. We may be playing for fun, money, legacy, or other reasons. It is our intention that makes all the difference, however.
The person playing for legacy may put in everything for the sport. The person who plays for money may make many compromises along the way.
Business is a game, too. It is often good to know our motives for playing this game. It helps to partner with people with similar intentions as us. It just makes the game much more valuable!
