Are you playing to win or playing to not lose?

I’m preparing for an upcoming event and the phrase, “Are you playing to win or are you playing to not lose?” kept coming up for me. The topic of the event is building confidence and this saying hit me like a ton of bricks.

For the last two months, I’ve been playing to not lose. For that matter, I think I’ve been doing that for the past three years!  Post-Covid brain had me playing smaller than I wanted to be.  It feels awful and much scarier than taking a big risk.  I’m committed to myself and my personal growth and from this point forward, I am playing to win. I’ve got big dreams, and I am going after them.

Playing to Win

🏆 Playing to Win: When you’re playing to win, you’re all in! You’re fueled by ambition, driven by goals, and ready to take risks. It’s about seizing opportunities, pushing boundaries, and embracing challenges with gusto. Winning isn’t just about the end result; it’s about the journey and the growth that comes with it.

Playing to Not Lose

🚫 Playing to Not Lose:  On the flip side, playing to not lose can mean playing it safe, sticking to the status quo, and avoiding risks at all costs. It’s a mindset rooted in fear of failure, which can hold you back from reaching your full potential. While there’s comfort in staying within your comfort zone, it often comes at the expense of missed opportunities and personal growth.

Food for Thought

💡 Food for Thought: So, which mindset resonates with you? Take a moment to reflect on your approach to life, whether it’s in your career, relationships, or personal pursuits. Are you playing it safe, or are you ready to step up your game and play to win?

🌟 Your Something Better: Remember, regardless of your current mindset, each day presents a new opportunity to shift gears and embrace a winning attitude. Whether you’re aiming for personal growth, professional success, or spiritual enlightenment, choose to play the game of life with intention, passion, and a fierce determination to win!

If you want to attend the abovementioned event, join me on Saturday, May 18 for the Connect-ING event.  It’s from 10:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. and it’s all about building confidence.
