Win humbly. Know that the pendulum swings... the yin has a yang… the ups have a down… everything has a flip side.
Lose with grace. There are more lessons in losing than in winning. When you lose you grow a little bit taller. You become a little bit wiser. You speak a little more humbly. You live a little more thoughtfully. You love a little more carefully. You remember the feeling and can readily help others who have lost something as well along the way. Your heart grows bigger and warmer because of it… and you’ll also have something to look forward to... winning ... some day when you’re least expecting it and it doesn’t matter anymore because you’ve forgotten all about whatever it was you were trying to win.
The race is with yourself.
You are already ahead of the game.
