Win or Lose
Posted by Jon Gordon
Everyone loses but the key is to make the loss stand for something and in my family LOSS now stands for:

LOSS (Learning Opportunity, Stay Strong)

When we lose we ask what we can learn from this loss and how we can improve because of it. Then we stay strong and work harder to come back and try to win.

Ultimately, it’s a lot like life--sometimes we win, sometimes we lose. Yes, winning matters just like losing matters. Keep in mind that after a loss something is learned. Hence LOSS = Learning Opportunity Stay Strong!

Every LOSS is a chance to get better. LOSS stands for Learning Opportunity, Stay Strong.
