Right. Crew, crew. Welcome to a Daily Mind Medicine Daily Dose. Let's talk about winning and losing. Start with winning, particularly what is the point of winning?
There's a lot of people, I think they'd have this weird philosophy of like, ev winning is everything. And I, I love, listen, I love Tim Grover, I love Michael Jordan.
I love these legendary figures who prioritized winning just like over everything else. I think the world is changing a little bit though, and I think that there are advantages to having more than just winning in business or with money on your docket of goals.
Now, I don't wanna water you down. I want to do the opposite. I don't want to dilute you. I want to do the opposite.
I want these podcasts to give you literal fire and energy and focus. But here's the thing. I know from experience that winning something on the surface is futile and it's worthless, and you'll eventually regret it.
You know, I've done, there's, there's been nine figures that's run through my organizations and multiple nine figures that's run through a few ex.
If you extend that out to clients, and here's the thing, I, I've realized. I love money. I love making money.
I love being the biggest. I love being the best. I love all of these things. But winning is has one job, and that is to let you try again.
This is the point of winning and losing. They're the same. To a professional, to a true blooded winner. Winning or losing are both the opportunity to get back in and play again.
]That's all that it is. It presents an opportunity for you to wake up again tomorrow and do it all over again.
It gives you the opportunity to play the game. I'll tell you this, if you want to make sure that whatever game you play, you win, you must train yourself to enjoy the game more than the final score.
You must train yourself to enjoy the process and the discipline of just going through it more than you enjoy the process of crossing the finish line.
It's the old saying, the one who enjoys walking will always walk more than the one who enjoys the destination. This my friends, is the secret.
If you enjoy what you get to do, then it does not matter. You can go through temporary setbacks, you can go through extended periods of failure.
You can go through it all because you're not transactional the game for the outcome. You are just simply enjoying the game.
Fix it. You gotta fix it. See you tomorrow.
