“Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.”
– John F. Kennedy
I was dropping my daughter Jane to a local soccer club for an Easter Soccer Camp for girls when something on the clubhouse wall caught my eye.
It was a simple but powerful message:
(We never lose)’
A powerful message to give to children and young adults. And certainly one to remember with regards to success in business and life.
We only lose if we refuse to learn from defeat, failure or a set-back.
The greatest learnings are usually to be discovered when we are feeling the greatest pain. But it often takes a large conscious effort to put our ego(s) to one side and step back to ask ourselves some questions:
– What did I/we learn here?
– What would I/do differently?
– Where can I/we get better?
– What’s the number one thing I’ve/We’ve learned from this?
– And what will I/we do about it?
Easy to say. Easy to put on a wall.
But in my experience, it’s much more difficult to live by it.
And if you’re looking to increase your profit in business AND in life, that’s definitely one place where the magic is.
