When You Lose, Don’t Lose The Lesson

January 8, 2012 | By | Add a Comment

Eventually – some might say, regularly – things don’t go completely to plan in our world. Getting over this can be challenging, and it’s always vital that we do, so that we can move on in good spirits.

To help us on our way, ensuring that we understand why the plan didn’t work as we would have wanted and learning from it, enables added value to be gained from losing positions.

Rarely do we get a perfect result from the experiences we have in our lives.

So by ensuring that we add value back in from what we can appreciate to do differently next time, we can make the outcome 100%, even if the goal we achieved was less so.

For the very enlightened, the lessons we learn from the experiences we have, however painful, can be even more enriching than the achievement of the goal we seek.

And the additional benefit is where we take a constructive and productive position when we might be feeling disappointed or let down, we gain focus, energy and emotional strength too.

Which puts a much greater ‘win’ slant on the ‘lose’ it might have been.
