Losing is a roadmap to winning.
In life you win some and you lose some. Sport teaches that life lession very well. My team lost today and they had a lot of advantages going into today’s game. It was a weird contest but in the end the better team on this occasion won.
You can’t win all the time but hopefully you give your best effort in the attempt. Everyone has experienced a defeat in something. The lesson you hope to learn is to get back up and try again. Life is a game we play daily. Let’s hope we pickup more victories than defeats in the process.
You win some and you lose some. That is how life goes. Accepting losses is a statement of character and gives one the driving force to try again. When it involves power and politics then it’s a whole new ball game where some who lose shouldn’t try again.
Those who lose in the game of politics should have some grace about them and realize that when it’s over, it’s over. The people have the say in winning and losing in this case. It’s OK to lose and if you do it well people will respect you for giving it your best.
Maybe some folks need to realize that it’s not about wheeling and dealing your way into winning because it doesn’t work like that. It’s time to move forward and to prepare for a new chapter in the lives of people who have suffered so much.
It’s time to let go of the past and embrace the new things to come on January 20, 2021.
The best game to win is the game of life and you can score big points by helping others. Wearing a mask, donating blood, giving to a food bank, volunteering for a local charity, recycling, advocating for the less fortunate, all of it can be good for you and for others. Do these things because it will make you a winner in the eyes of many and a hero too.
This picture from Janet Faulk on Facebook has been making its way around and its very true. You have a choice to bicker in small groups or become a winner through teamwork to find ways to win. When given a choice, be a winner.
