Everyone’s a loser, and how you can be the better loser
There hasn’t been a case where someone has won in every situation. all of us have encountered failure from the earliest stages of life and we persevered through all of it. We have little victories which declares us a winner for 15 seconds and then we encounter a new task which makes the last task look like child’s play. This is why I think it’s far-fetched to say that there are winners and losers because at the end of the day, we are all losers because we keep moving ahead starting a new challenge where we face failure again. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing, in fact, I think this is one of the most applaudable characteristics about human beings because this is why we are always in a constant state of advancement and evolvement. These people are the better losers, the ones who don’t give up when faced with failures, and the ones who do are the ones you don’t want to be like.
The better loser
These people are the ones who don’t care how many times they lose as long as they reach their end goal. It can take them hundreds if not thousands of tries to achieve it. I think even the most successful people shouldn’t be considered winners; they should be considered the losers who didn’t give up. That’s what differentiates them from the rest of the losers, they don’t give up after the slightest inconvenience because most people love instant gratification. You will eventually win after losing so many times. You can either lose once and quit if you don’t win or lose multiple times, learn from those mistakes, and then win. The second method will always guarantee a win and the first rarely ever will. It’s a simple practice and shouldn’t be hard to do with the right mindset.
This is a thinking I think everyone can borrow. When you start thinking of life as your own race it’s much easier to succeed because you stop caring about what others think or if they are ahead of you. If you think of it as a race and quit halfway then all that build up will go to waste and you’ll have to start over again, so just finish it. This is just my perspective on life and how I deal with negativity when it comes to defining my own success. Keep trying, because at the end of the day you are either the better loser or just a loser.
