Famous football coach Vince Lomardi once said: “It isn’t about winning or losing; it’s about winning.” Victory comes in many forms. The mindset of winning cares little about the scoreboard, yet the score favors the Winner. This is because planning and practice for success is a conquest in and of itself.
Preparing for triumph has the mind, body and spirit declaring win regardless of the outcome. U.S. Olympic gymnast Mary Lou Retton was asked after scoring a perfect 10 in competition:
“When did you know you were a 10?”
Her immediate reply?
“I knew this morning when I woke up.”
