What is Winning ?
Too often people get the term “winning” confused.
If you ask most people what winning means, I bet majority will answer: being the first not the last or something like being the best in achieving that goal you have set up.
These viewpoints might be right but don’t best describe the word “winning”.
Think about it for a moment, it’s like asking yourself:
Can you win and actually lose at the same time…?
Can you be a winner if you don’t reach your goals…?
I once had a conversation with a friend regarding a certain goal, and i told him I was winning. He looked at me and laughed, then said: how can u be winning when you not at the top (first), do you have an idea what winning is he added.
I smiled back at him and replied: funny how people confuse winning and winner to be the same, but actually it is not. Me using this phrase means i’m referring to the fact that i was moving forward, getting closer, gaining results and seeing myself progressing, moving toward to a desired outcome, getting there on track. My actions are regulating towards my desire, purpose and my dreams.
It’s not about being first or whether you win or lose but how hard you try. If you put all effort in it and try hard and harder every time, then you are winning/a winner -regardless of you not being first and losing.
This is how i define Winning. Moving forward with actions of getting closer to that desire.
Think about it: what is winning to you and how does it reflect in your journey…
Few quotes i find best describe winning to my own viewpoint:
-Winning is about hanging on in there when others give up.
-Winning is having belief in yourself and the business you run.
-Winning is about standing in your power, living on purpose in harmony whilst making a profit.
-Winning is about embracing your creativity, inner wisdom and all that is unique and important to you.
-Winning is a game of inner transformation”.

You should never try to be better than someone else.
Learn from others and never seize trying to be the best you can be.Is not what others think of you, is not what others perceive you to be, Is what you really are and you are the only one that really know that.
