“I never lose. I either win or learn.” – Nelson Mandela
What a beautiful way to look at all of life’s endeavors. This quote takes away some of the fear of doing something new and reminds me to GO. FOR. IT.
The truth is that I will learn regardless of the outcome. What is better than that?
When we are learning, we are growing and evolving into a better version of ourselves. Whether it’s seeking new business, teaching a yoga class, or trying to spackle and paint a wall on my own.
What may happen?
Success – embrace the win and celebrate!
OR, I may make a mess. The learning I gain will position me to do better the next time.
My father taught me that he always learned more from the loss than the win. I agree.
I certainly do not like to lose. In fact, I hate it. However, I have learned WAY MORE from the losses than the wins.
