Learning to lose

When my boys were young they played competitive baseball and went on to play in college. As you might imagine, winning was always a desired outcome and most of the time they did.

When you are use to winning, losing doesn’t come easy. On those days when the “W” didn’t come, I often shared this quote, “Anyone can be a great winner but it takes somebody to be a great loser.”

During these times of national elections, the sports advice still holds. Learning to lose graciously takes class and statesmanship.

Losing is often an opportunity to reset, regroup and reorganize our perspective, approach and direction. It is counter intuitive but there are times when losing can often lead to being a champion.
