We all grow up on the belief that what placing we get within a competition or life situation, defines who we are & what we value ourselves on. Winning does not give you super powers, it should not make you believe you are better than someone else, a status doesn't make you more superior than someone else, neither does, the more money you have or however famous you become. When we are young, we get told that being the best at something should be a life ambition, that it defines who we are. Makes us better than others. However, this teaching only creates a negative impact for the future of us all. It makes us believe that loosing means we are worthless or not good enough. It makes us re define the purpose of life. it makes us judge people for what they have achieved, instead of who they are as a person. Its funny, everyone wants to be friends with a winner. & this is only human nature. but it breeds cowardly thoughts.
I compete & I loose oh boy do I loose, probably at times when I should of got through even as a flook accident. But I loose. & I'm sure people have their judgments of me because of how badly I may have performed, But I would never let the thoughts of others define me, nor would I let a loss define me. Winning does not define me. Loosing does not define me. I am more than a result. Everyone is more than a result & I find it sad that people judge others by how good they are at something. It doesn't make them a kind person. I am not saying that talent should not be applauded but it should not be the definition of someones value. and we shall not judge people if they are not excelling in a sport or career outlet, we all have our own journey & everyone's glory awaits them at certain times, within their existence.
