      No disrespect to Dusty, and I do like the video, but I tend to disagree with the logic. I think if you focus on the result (1st place) and not the action needed to get there (preparation/effort/execution) you will be fooled by your result. You can finish first sometimes with poor effort and preparation and finish second or worse with great effort and preparation. I believe you should judge your success/failure on your effort & preparation instead of the end result.

        Very cool.

        This weekend, my 8 year old daughter was playing in a soccer game. On her team, whenever someone scores, they have a seat on the sidelines (dont get me started on this). The game is tied 3 all (my daughter had two goals). She looks at me and says," Hey Daddy, the game is tied...I really hope that I can get in before the game ends." A boy on her team heard her and said," It isn't important if you win or lose, it is how much fun you have." His Dad beemed proudly at his comment. Without missing a beat, my daughter replied," Ya..well I dont have any fun losing." That is when I beemed...definately my little girl.

          None taken and I actually agree 110% with what you are saying. I always say train for the win! Refuse to lose...but you can be beaten. In other words if you give 110% you cannot "lose" you can only be "beaten." I have no issue with someone coming out on top that is not me but I refuse to be outworked which means that I must train and suffer with the victory in my mind. When you compete you give 100% all of the time and the chips fall where they will, but typically if you give it everything you have eventually you get the victory too.

          I am sponsored by a clothing company called FNO or Failure's No Option. Their motto is 100% all of the time and it was an honor to be chocen as an athlete because they see that their motto is my way of living.

              Well put, that to me is the essence of focusing on the means and not the ends...it actually increases your odds of achieving the thing you want!

                So true!

                If you put the work in and fall just a little short, but you know that you really put every effort forth to achieve your goal, then there is no shame in that. To lose is to give up when you suffer a shortfall, but if you pick your ass up and get on your journey with true conviction, you will have added another layer to your strength and it will make the taste of achieving victory that much sweeter.

                      Top thread, ;loved the Vid and loved LearningDC's daughter.

                      I was once told: A man who beats another is strong but a man who beats himself is stronger.

                      This sums things up for me.

                      But I told my brother in law this and he said I was wrong "A man who beats another is strongest because a man who beats himself is just sitting around masturbating."

                      People look at the same stuff differently.

                          I strongly agree with this. This past season I did very well at my shows. Took overall the the first one and 3 firsts in my class. I KNEW I could have been better so even though I won I felt it was almost undeserved. I did put forth 110% effort but suffered much less than my previous shows as I prepped smarter not harder. My previous shows I suffered a lot more and that almost translated into feeling like I was working harder.

                              Some useful motivation now that exam season is coming up. Maybe I should spend less time on the internet if I want first place there, though.
