“If you lose, be patient. If you win, stay humble”

"If you lose, be patient. If you win, stay humble” is an inspirational saying that has been printed on many images. “If you win stay humble, if you lose, put your head down and figure out how to do better next time” was printed in the Des Moines (IA) Register on March 20, 2009. “When you win be humble. When you lose be patient” was posted on Twitter by Dwight Gunning on March 5, 2010.

“If you lose be patient. If you win, stay humble” was posted on Twitter by ヒルミ on June 5, 2013. “If you lose, be patient. If you win, be humble” was posted on Twitter by Dawson M on August 27, 2013. Authorship of the saying is unknown, but it was probably at least popularized by an image.

“If you win, be humble. If you lose, be gracious” is a similar saying.


20 March 2009, Des Moines (IA) Register, “Senior Wieben leaving Iowa State as winner” by Dan Johnson, pg. 2C, col. 3:
Her coaches talked about, “if you win stay humble, if you lose, put your head down and figure out how to do better next time.’”
(Spoken by Iowa State coach Bill Fennelly.—ed.)

If you lose, be patient; if you win, be humble!
Right from school, we are taught that Success and Failure are opposites. But as we grow up, we realize that failure is an important step before achieving success. In fact, failure, or rather the lessons that we learn from failure, form an important part of the journey to success.
