Who is a winner? What does it means to be a winner? What is winning? Is it any rocket science hard to crack by any common person? Is it quantum physics which is not easy to grasp by any average student? What is it then?
Winning is something that everyone can achieve. Winning or success is not only considered when you do extraordinary things or work. Yes that to is winning but it is extraordinary winning which cannot be done by normal people. But to do extraordinary things, you don’t need extraordinary people. You only need extra amount of effort to be extraordinary than anyone else.
There are two types of winning in this world. One which is decided by other people and one which you decide yourself. The one decided by people is only when the result you provide after any work or game or match is positive. At that point, the world will only judge by your result and not by your work or effort you put in. But when you are the one who decide whether you won or lost is the true compliment.
Being praised by someone else is a proud moment for any person, but it’s not the only thing needed. What matters is how you feel after your work or match. In worlds point of view, if you win, you will be praised by them, will provide you prize and what not. But if you lose, some people will still praise you but most of them will say you didn’t give your best. The one who praised you even after your loss is the one who knows your effort.
Don’t let others decide whether you gave your best or no. You should be the one deciding because you were the one at the ring of competition and not them. How will they know without fighting for it. You were the one who was fighting from the beginning to the end. You should be the one to decide for yourself.
The point when you decide you are still a winner even when you lost the match just because you gave your best, believe me you will be more victorious than the person who actually won. You will have better opportunity to grow more. Yes it will hurt at the very moment. But it is the main thing in life. To accept failure and work on it without blaming yourself. This is the true mindset of a winner.
If you feel you didn’t give your best when you failed, that thought will always be there at every moment of you life and will make you blame yourself for not working hard. Blaming is not the answer to your loss. Accept the loss and believe in yourself. If you blame, the belief in you will start depleting. Never think low of yourself when you don’t get the result of what you imagined for. If you didn’t work upto your limit, that might be one mistake but if you have worked past your limit then no need to blame. This might you might have failed but next you will definitely be victorious.
The one who accepts his failure without blaming anything or anyone is the real winner. He/ she might have failed now but this failure will bring them back even stronger and will shine throughout with their hard work and determination. Your mind is the one deciding your fate at your loss. Don’t let it decide negative about you. Instead feed your mind with the hard work and effort you put in to have better mindset about yourself.
