You can win by losing. Really.
I, and some others are doing it. It is going to be fantastic for all of us.
My friend has crafted a plan by which about 24 of us can actually benefit from loss.
Of course, you guessed it; I’m talking about weight.
We will benefit physically, and a couple, maybe more, financially. We will lose and win after a six-month challenge. What could be better than, for the next six months, learning to live healthier, eat better and work out regularly? From where I sit, soon to be working out, I think that is a win.
Now, what about life?
How can you win from losing?
I think that there is a trick to it. Here it is. If you have to go through some tough stuff, make it pay! Don’t go through with complaint; go through with getting a wider angle, a larger reference, a shifted paradigm.
That’s how it works. You either let it wreck you for the bad, or you let it wreck you for the good.
I think that Andy Stanley said it, “Wisdom is simply the widest angle of perspective possible.”
So, if you are going to go “through it” at least get the wisdom, that is readily available, from it.
Then, and only then, you will win by losing.
So, let’s talk about loss!
You Don’t Have To Live; You Get To!
