What's this "How to win at life"?  Life isn't a game where one wins and everyone else loses. 

Life's more about being successful (perhaps "content" would be a better word) in "being oneself" and "being a valued member of the community."

"Godliness with contentment is great gain."  1 Tim 6:6-11.  Here's what "winning" is: righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.

 

 But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
11 But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.

Maybe they think they've "won at life," with having ripped off believers worldwide for lots of dosh, amassed to their own comfort and never distributed for what the donors thought it would be used for.  Nice places to live, nice campuses, nice grounds for personal use, vehicles (such a shame they had to lose the private jet), swimming pools, quiet location, army of slaves - sorry, staff on minimum wage - to service grounds, vehicles, buildings - and that's without the other aspects of "servicing" that we know about. 

Law of thieving more than law of believing.

So, yeah! they've won at life.  If you count that, as winning.

yup - note on the box cover "spin to win" = spinning your wheels = use a lot of effort without achieving anything.

Once again you have broadened my horizons - I had to look up panto season:

"In the UK a Pantomime, or “Panto” as it is usually affectionately called, is a form of interactive theatre, performed around the Christmas season for the entertainment of millions of families...

Ugly sister: “I’m much prettier than Cinderella”
Audience: “Oh no you’re not!”
Ugly sister: “Oh yes I am!”
Audience: “Oh no you’re not!”

This happens frequently with a variety of lines throughout the show and it is up to the Actors to decide how long to keep it going before they go back to the script. No Panto script is complete without the “It’s/he’s/she’s behind you!” moments. Either on stage or “front of tabs” (in front of the curtain), the children are asked by one of the main characters to let them know if a ghost/spider/gorilla or anything else appears."

from: what is Panto Season

 

sounds like a lot of fun

You don't have pantomime season in the US?  It's mad, bizarre, crazy, and completely over the top.  Let your inhibitions go, and enjoy a laugh at theatre in the insane.  The season is December-January, sometimes early Feb (at least, it used to be, prior to CoVid-19) (who knows what'll happen to live entertainment now).

If we have a panto season this year, though, I'm sure there'll be lots of topical references to coronavirus - maybe that'll be the "it's behind you!" lurker.  Yep, the panto nasty, felled by the pantomime dame (a male in female dress-up) or the principal boy (a youngish female in male attire).  Hmm, yes.   I can see it now.

Panto best undertaken with a small child or two.  And possibly a comfortable quantity of alcohol (please drink responsibly).
