Winning and Success

I recently spoke to someone about the importance of understanding winning and success. Winning is something we’ve all come to know. The Patriots and the Cavs won and the Falcons and Golden State Warriors lost. You close the sale or you don’t. You get promoted to manager or your teammate does. Winning, is somewhat binary.

Success on the other hand is a more nebulous, and thus harder to define. In fact, if I were to ask you right now what success means you may or may not have an answer.

Furthermore, what you determine as success is going to be different than what someone else might view as success. Winning is not bad, neither is wanting success. It’s just important to define them for yourself and to know the difference.

    This is by far one of the best representations of success and winning. At first, I was a little hesitant because the length was so short but after reading, I must apologize.

    You are exactly right. Success is nebulous. Everybody has a different definition as to what it is, whereas winning is clear-cut.

    Thanks Alex
