Remember that time when you lost to that other kid at school? Of course you do. Everyone is a loser at one point in their life and if you are lucky, you’ll be losing a lot more in your life. You’ll probably be more of a loser after this article than you deserve to be.
What does winning teach you? Nothing. Winning teaches you to hold onto that one moment when you thought you were a winner. Sure, you were a winner at that one moment in time. That brief moment you were a champion. You were the best. And you hold onto that moment forever.
But what does it mean to lose? Losing teaches you that your best just wasn’t good enough. You didn’t make it to the top of the heap. But you survived. You got up, shook off the defeat, and move forward.
You aren’t reliving the glory years of “how your team won the championship that year” inside the local tavern over a warm beer. You aren’t retelling the same worn out story every time you see your friends of how you caught that game winning touchdown pass. You didn’t catch that pass. You lost and you moved on. You didn’t dwell on failure or defeat. You learned from the losing experience and it made you a tougher person.
If anything, you should have learned why you lost and took steps to improve yourself and your ability to succeed next time. Losing is a learning experience and motivates us to do better, to strive for improvement.
