Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 116

“Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn.” – John Maxwell

What a great quote that Spidey found for me to muse upon this morning!

This speaks so much to me, especially after all the mindset training we have had at school recently.

It’s all about the way you look at things, isn’t it?

So you have all heard the old adage, ‘You win some you lose some.’

The initial quote by John Maxwell is a much more positive way of looking at a situation that didn’t quite work out.

Yes. There are times you lose.

But is losing really a bad thing?

Winning or succeeding is always going to be the goal we strive for, but seeing a situation not reach that goal doesn’t necessarily mean you have to see it as losing or a loss.

Whatever went wrong should be seen as a lesson learned. A way to improve for next time.

Not a negative thought, but a positive reaction to do better next time.

It’s not that we can’t do it, it’s more that we can’t do it yet.

Yet.

That is one of the key words in fostering a growth mindset.

Yes there are things that we can’t do, but if we remain positive and open minded, seeing failures as learning opportunities then we know that we can’t do it yet.

One day we will get there!

So Peeps, enjoy your Sunday and embrace any opportunity to try that ‘thing’ you can’t do yet. Keep trying and you’ll get there!

    I’m living through this right now only in the backwards order. Lose some, win some! After a horrid loss, we are about to travel for the month of June. Crazy… all about destiny and taking opportunities.

    Spidey has come up with another cracker, Sis! As you say, we can often learn from when things don’t go according to plan. 🙂

    Learning from failure is a much better idea than trying to avoid failure at all costs. It’s also less destructive.

    I love this quote. I prefer to say that we don’t fail but we make experiences. That way this quote speaks to me a lot. We win or we don’t win but we never lose. What we always make are experiences! We tend to judge what is good or bad but actually, everything simply is. Great quote, Sis!

    Didn’t know spidey meditates hehe…Love the quote- that’s really a positive way of looking at things. And you’re right…not getting there or having it does not mean losing…it only means we still have things to learn and we’ll get there eventually when we keep trying… I also like the “YET” insight. So very true!
    Wishing you and your family a serene and lovely Sunday! ☺
