Week 4 - Winning and Losing

  • Inathletics in life sometimes it's good to lose
  • When you lose, you need to ask yourself tough questions…What are your weaknesses? How can you improve team chemistry? What can I do better to make sure that it doesn't happen again?
  • Mark of a true winner is defined by taking the losses and learning from those experiences
  • Any day of the week I'd rather win but in order to be great sometimes you have to lose
  • The key is to make sure your not repeating the same mistakes that made you lose
  • LIMIT your mistakes and you will always have a chance to win in life
