To some, the traditional definition of winning is the one who gets the prize, get’s there first, or who demolishes the opponent. They might also argue that there can only be one winner and that makes everyone else by default, a loser. Now let me define winning. Everyone who takes a chance on their dream is a winner. Anyone who has courage to get in the race is a winner. Anyone that believes enough in their dreams to at least try is a winner. Anyone that doesn’t give up or make excuses even though the odds are not in their favor is a winner. Anyone who chooses to believe that the journey is just as important as the destination is a winner. So, I choose to define as winning any effort that gets me closer to my goal, teaches me important life lessons, increases my faith, makes me serve more unselfishly and more courageously, and also expands my horizons.
