One simple fact of life is that nobody likes to lose; everyone wants to be a winner. We’ve all heard the sayings that compare the daily grind to a rat race. For some of us, it even feels this way.
But what if you don’t like the race and don’t enjoy the grind at all? Does this automatically make you a loser by default? And what does winning even mean?
Imagine if we were to begin to look at life as a sort of dance or musical performance and, instead of watching others while trying to win – everyone was trying to learn new moves, perform them gracefully, and enjoyed the quatrains of life’s more precious symphonies?
What if we focused on just being happy instead of winning life’s game?
I think that would help us to be happier for others, too.
I want to win as much as anyone but I prefer to win by my own definition of winning. I can not compare the speed or elegance of my race to that of another because my background, experiences, skills, and soul are different than that of another. We are all unique.
To me, winning is a thing of integrity, compassion, optimism, and resourcefulness.
And In order to be a winner, true winning means that you also applaud the wins of another. I vow to always applaud the wins of another, big or small, whenever chance presents itself.
