Playing Not To Lose

A lot of us want to succeed, but we are playing it too safe. Success does not come from playing a safe game. Success does not come from playing not to get hurt. Success does not come from play not to make mistakes.

Playing a safe game is playing to be comfortable. Playing a safe game is playing to remain in your comfort zone. But if you want to move yourself to the next level, if you want to grow, to be successful, to be happier, to be healthier, you MUST be ready to play the real game.

You cannot win at anything unless you are ready to be uncomfortable. You cannot win at anything unless you are ready to do things differently. If you keep doing the same thing over and over again, you will continue to get the same old, boring results.

If you change what you are doing, how you are doing it, the result will change.

“It is impossible to win the race unless you venture to run, impossible to win the victory unless you dare to battle.”- Richard M. Devos

Don’t play a safe game, play it differently, and you will get a different result. If you play it safe, you will be safe, but nothing will happen in your life. There will be no growth.

You will always win if you are ready to get dirty, to be honest with yourself. Doing something the first time is scary, and it will always be scary. But don’t let that stop you from facing your fears. Don’t let that stop you from aggressively pursuing your dreams. If you don’t do it, no one will do it for you.

Success is within your reach, but ready to be uncomfortable.
