Mindset Mondays with DTK – Ep #079 — Always do your best …

It’s true. I hated losing. Even when I was only competing with myself: falling short of a goal, missing a target date or revenue mark or milestone or weight. Even in those arenas – or especially in those arenas! – I hated losing. Yes, I used the past tense: “hated.” It was a quote by Jackie Joyner Kersee that turned it around for me:

“I don’t mind losing as long as I see improvement or I feel I’ve done as well as I possibly could.”

So long as I am moving forward, so long as I am making progress, so long as I am seeing improvement … then a “loss” is easier to navigate. The real currency for me is growth, not victory. A win without improvement or growth is tantamount to a Pyrrhic victory. In the end, I’ll always take growth.

Which currency is more valuable in your world?
