Success or Failure: a Matter of Degree

Winners and Losers

It was a strange dream, last night, even by my own standards: I kept seeing two outcomes for a potential ‘success’ story. In the first instance, it was obvious that what was supposed to happen, didn’t. In the second, the odds seemed against success, but it happened anyway. In other words, nothing is a dead cert…

Sometimes, winning is an accident:

In this case, the winner tripped at end of the race and fell across the finish line first.

Sometimes, the declared loser is actually the winner when the photo finish is reviewed:

Sports makes the struggle more visible, and we ‘ordinary’ folk only witness the events. But everyone goes through stuff, all the time. And in our own estimation, we think we are the best in the world, or, at least, second-best. We don’t like to think we’re losers.

It’s only a matter of degree.

Conclusion

If you meet with failure along the way, see it as a step on your road to success.
