American actor, producer and Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman, once said that
“The best way to guarantee a loss is to quit.”.
Over the years, there have been lots of books written on winning a race, winning at life and how to be a winner. Indeed, an area to be read and written about. We all strive to succeed, be famous and dwell in the pride that comes with all of that. The life of young leaders, winners and achievers inspires us and motivates us to be better every time. The very essence of winning is in the root of participating and we all must catch this rope at least once to experience the waves of success and even the not so successful one. There is no failure in my dictionary of participation! I am already a winning candidate if I participate. I love something. I work hard to achieve it. I am already a gainer!
Winners get medals and recognition for their winning spirit but participation gives us lots of learnings:
- It is motivational for all.
- It humbles us.
- It helps us to understand our mistakes /shortcomings and work on them.
- It ignites a deep sense of self-love, self-respect and self-worth.
Participation is beyond losing and winning.
Sweet high spirit song
Rum pump rum pump rum pump re,
Open your eyes to a bright day
I will make, bake a new cake
Because I love to participate
I may not know how it will be done
But no harm in taking my turn
Extra sugar cream and Ray
Will make my cake a little more grey
But when I become an elite in it
I can share my experience and bank on it
All that we learn in a day
