    Heads they win; tails we lose!

    I know of people who believe that winning is everything and that they have failed in a sense, if they do not win. Winning and losing are not mutually exclusive.

    Even if one should ‘lose’ there is so much that they could have ‘won’.

    If one’s perspective is grounded in respecting the journey then so much can be learnt from a loss. Winning and losing are not mutually exclusive and should not be perceived to be so.
