I was just listening to ‘I’m Yours’ by Jason Mraz.
I love the attitude in the line: “Nothing’s gonna stop me but divine intervention, I reckon it’s again my turn to win some or learn some.”
What a great one-line reframe on win/lose thinking; “Win some or learn some.”
But wait a minute; does that mean that when we win we don’t learn anything? Watch out winners, this may be true. When we are at the top we may stop learning; we can easily become complacent: Whilst everyone else is learning the winners are static and the tortoise overtakes the hare. Worse still, we can cling to our successes and become fearful of failure – we become risk adverse, we do the same thing over and over again, which is a really good way of making sure you do fail.
