In a competitive environment usually one-of-two outcomes will happen.
The first is you win. You or your team bests the opponents, and you are crowned winner.
The second outcome is you lose. Your opponent is better, scoring more point, records a better time, lifts more weight. And you receive nothing but heart-break and ache.
That is our current model of competition. It’s a broken model.
Instead of seeing losing as a demotion of esteem and ego…what if you try a different view?
A winning perspective
What if you learn instead of lose?
You learn what went right…and what you need more of. And you learn what went wrong…and what you need less of.
The athletes and teams, businesses, performers who are consistently competing at the highest level do just this.
Certainly a loss can sting. But instead of a set back a loss should be a set up—for a future success.
It is a winner’s and winning perspective.
