Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence. - Vince Lombardi

Winning or losing ? Does it really matter ? In the grand scheme of things it probably does not. Is that a reason not to want to win ? Or make it a goal ?

 

Of course it’s not. It might not matter but it is worthwhile. At least in my opinion it is. The pursuit of excellence in a field where one is willingly participating is fulfilling and honourable.

 

The problem is most of the time we get too attached to the ending, the results, the fame, the accolades, the praise. Winning becomes part of our self-worth, of who we are.

 

And it should not. We have to aspire to be the VERY best we can be without in the process losing ourselves and our faiths. Let the pursuit of excellence be the reward.

 

The reward is doing something, consistently with diligence and perseverance. Never giving up regardless of the obstacles, regardless of the naysayers, regardless of any hurdles that you encounter.

 

That in itself is the best reward. Not necessarily being the best in the eyes of others. No. Being the BEST version of yourself. It is more elusive perhaps for most of you it seems pointless.

 

Winning is the most important thing. The Buddha said : “A man who conquers himself is far greater than a man who conquers a million men on the battlefield.

 

I will let you ponder on this quote.

 

Does everyone deserve a medal at the end of a competition ? Is competition an obsolete concept ?

 

In my opinion there’s beauty in competition. It can propel you to greater heights if you know how to deal with failure, with ups and downs. Making you realise that everything is transient and nothing last forever. Winning is a very transient concept if it means being number 1 ahead of all others.

 

There should be winners and they should be losers. Labels don’t matter much. It’s what you do with them and how they boost you to another level.

 

Losing can be winning and winning can be losing if you don’t know how to deal with it.

 

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster

    And treat those two impostors just the same - Rudyard Kipling

 I will let you ponder on it. Understand that if you can.
