Any sports fan knows it's better to win than lose. Athletes or teams that have a losing record and over time rack up consecutive losing seasons can easily fall into the trap of seeing themselves as losers. (You are what your record says you are.) The challenge in sports and life is to see ourselves as winners despite our actions that led to losing an argument, the sale, a job, a spouse, a friend or the game.
Every loss requires an individual or team to bounce back from defeat. That requires seeing ourselves as winners, believing in our heart we are worthy of winning, and taking the steps that we know lead to winning. It also requires us to be accountable for our role in the loss. Only then can we move forward with conviction, commitment and resolve to never give up, never ever give up!
