W is for winning…

27 Apr
You can win without crossing the finish line simply because you tried. You don’t have to cross over first to be considered a winner either. There are so many opportunities where awards are given to those that have finished ahead of the rest yet the real winners were at the back of the pack.
I love to see people work really hard at something when they know they aren’t going to accomplish what other people have done. The mere fact that they try makes them winners. If you read the definition of win it doesn’t say where the person finished. It just says the act of someone or a thing that wins.
I had a book signing today. I didn’t sell all of my books but it was a great experience. I made amazing connections with people I had never met and discussed future events. Some may have seen the event as a failure because I took some books back to my car. However, because of the combination of things–the sales, the connections, exposure and scheduling of future events, I won.
You’ve got to try in order to be a winner. Put your best foot forward and you’ve already won!
