Day 39

Updated: Jun 14, 2019


Losing is not fun. Whether it's losing a baseball game, or losing your wallet, it's stressful, frustrating, irritating, the list goes on.

Winning is hard.

Anything worth doing is hard. But without knowing what losing feels like, winning wouldn't be so sweet.

Life celebrates winners, but often forgets to acknowledge the losses incurred along the path that provided the winners with the roadmap to success.

Nobody is undefeated in life. Winners don't let the losses define them. They use failure to forge even greater strength and resilience.

Being a winner is a choice. It's a choice that requires the will power and the discipline to do what others will not.

Every human experiences loss and failure. Losers choose to dwell on those experiences and expect to lose or fail again, unwilling to change the behavior that led to failure in the first place.

Winners choose to use those experiences as a reference for what they need to improve, doing whatever is necessary to behave in a way that gets them closer to the success they know they can achieve.

The question isn't, "Do you want to win?"

Everybody wants to win.

The question is, "Are you willing to do what is required to accomplish what you want to accomplish.

Winning is hard.

In the words of Nick Saban (who is pretty good at winning), "It takes what it takes."

Be a winner. It's hard. And it's worth it.
