Five Things about Winning.


A few lessons I’ve learned about winning from watching the Olympics this past two weeks:

  1. If you cannot lose with grace, you shouldn’t win either.  Exhibit A: Hope Solo.
  2. All the world roots for an underdog.
  3. Winners require determination, but a bit of luck is usually in the mix.
  4. If you fall down, pick yourself up. If someone falls in front of you, help them up as well. (See #5 for why).
  5. Winning isn’t always about achieving first place or receiving a medal.
