Every amazing winner is also a big loser

Most winners are good at losing.

A big winner is probably a big loser.

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” — Michael Jordan

What’s the scoop? Winners tend to be great learners. They do stuff and learn from the results they achieve. Then they do more stuff.

Losers

And, as a result they tend to fail alot.

You can’t help but fail if you are constantly trying new things and there are few silver bullets to success out there.

It turns out that the absolutel best learning experience is failure.

Failing at something offers the greatest opportunity to learn (as long as you don’t make the same mistake twice which would indicate you didn’t learn anything!)

The best learners have more failures under their belt. They fail often and they learn. They apply what lessons they learn from failing. And they win.

Do you have the guts to fail a lot?

If so, you have the critical ingredient to win. And win BIG!

Cheers,
Roy
