At the end of the day, a winner is always selected.
Whether it be a presidential candidate, a sport, or even a job opening at the office, there will never be a tie.
When ten or twenty teams play for a championship only one team wins. When dozens of job applicants are interviewed for one job position only one candidate is selected.
Sometimes you win, many times you lose. In fact, most of the time you lose.
Even if you lose, you can still win, if you choose to win.
You can see pain at a catalyst for growth. You can see setback as perspective. You can see obstacles as the raw materials for growth.
When you play to win, you grow, even when you lose.
When you set a goal to lose twenty pounds and you lose only seventeen you still win. When you start a business you may not succeed but you’ll learn, be stretched, and become stronger.
When you run a marathon, you’ll most likely not take first but you’ll still win.
Challenge yourself, think big and bold, and take risks. That’s how you’ll succeed.
