How winning is done

MedalWinning means victory. A victory in a competition when competing with others is one fine example in sports. You are either one of the losers or you are either the top dog, the one who has bested the best. In life it is the same. Take for an example a job interview you had once. You wanted to get the job but were told you didn’t make the cut because some other person was better than you, or maybe you did get the job and all the others had to now wallow in the thought that they were bested. You either win or you either lose there is no in between. There are no trophies to be earned just by participating like they would have you believe at school, and when you lose it means you weren’t the best at what you set out to do.

How then, do you win and not taste the bitter fruit of losing like so many have?


The answer is everyone loses. Everyone. Not one successful person has not lost in some point of their careers, whether it be sport or business, and tasted that sour taste. Losing however is what makes them win. Losing is what teaches the lessons that need to be taught. Losing is what eliminates the imitators, the talk but no walks, and all the people that never had the heart to do what they said they would do long term.

Winning is done when you learn all your lessons from your losses and when you finally become strong enough from that heavy load you have lifted and carried, that the others by comparison, haven’t lifted and carried as much as you have. 

In training people seem never struggle. They always look for the secret, and the easy way out. They do something they KNOW they can do. They do something that is well within their comfort zone. They succeed everyday against the barbell, the dumbbell, or however they train. So with that, they never learn, they never lose. When no lesson is learnt, how then, can anyone get anywhere close to the body they want? They can’t. They haven’t earned it.

In business people seem to never take a risk when it is needed. To do the time-consuming research, to test methods that may seem too hard and not work, to think outside the box of finding a solution, and to just take the easy way out by falling prey into false formulas and snake-oil talk. When they make a few dollars that’s all they’ll ever make. They’ll never make it to the big leagues. Why? Because they haven’t earned it. They haven’t lost and learned any lessons.

The people that win in training struggle. They do that one more repetition that they THINK they know they’ll fail but give it a go anyway. They don’t follow internet templates, they try out things for themselves by pain, sweat and a daily brutal grind. Because they love it. They LOSE many times in training by not getting that one repetition, or by focusing on the wrong things because it didn’t work for them, but they have learnt, they have got strong and now they’re ahead more so than the ones that don’t struggle, precisely because they have struggled.

The people that win in business, take the risks. They don’t wallow on the fact that they’re spending cash to see what happens, they spend that cash and instantly know that they have to work to make the money they spent work for them. They’re the ones that try every method available to them that doesn’t seem like it only takes minutes a day, but know that it’ll help them out with their hours a day, because they know that’s what it takes. They LOSE by sacrificing their time on methods of advertising, as an example that didn’t get them the prospects they wanted, and maybe dealing the wrong ways. Probably losing money in the beginning and not earning much profit either due to this process. But they’re much farther ahead now than the rest of the people that never learnt, and never struggled. They learned to be better with their money, they now know what methods to focus on and how to deal better.

Whether it be training, business or any aspect of your life, just know you will always be competing. You must put yourself in positions that you are unsure you will win, and find a way to win. You will lose many times, but you should never EVER lose permanently and call it quits. Every loss makes you stronger every time you get up and give it one more go. It’s painful, but just remember, pain doesn’t hurt.

“Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.”Arnold Schwarzenegger

“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
Now go out there and win!
