I heard this phrase from a co-worker of mine when several people were discussing the weekend football results. The Monday armchair quarterback syndrome of analysis and woulda coulda shoulda ideas of coaching college and NFL teams.
What struck me about this phrase was how true it is. The question I thought about was, how often do we let ourselves lose because it is easy. Jim Rohn spoke about this idea many times. It may be easier to get a snickers bar when you have that afternoon lul because you don’t have to walk too far. when you could by-pass the candy and take a short walk around the office or go outside for a few minutes and walk around the parking lot to get fresh air to revive yourself. It might be easier to hit the snooze button rather than get up when the alarm goes off because your tired or it is cold or it is early. It may be easier, but when you wake back up after 30 minutes and realize how late you are, your day starts out way too crazy.
These small items are forms of discipline. Discipline will not let us lose in our life. We can have discipline to study, work harder get physically fit, spend quality time with family. These type of activities will let us win and not lose in out lives. Yet these small acts of discipline may be hard at first, but will get easier, allowing us to succeed.
Lets not make Losing Easy. Lets make Succeeding Easy.
