“If a competitor is hell bent on pushing forwards when you’re content to sit still, don’t be surprised when they win”
Brendan Mitchell

I was watching a film the other day and it had the following line…

“A man learns nothing from winning, but the act of losing elicits great wisdom, not least of which is how much more enjoyable it is to win… it’s inevitable that you will lose from time to time, the trick is not to make a habit of it”

I’ve often said that I’ve never made a mistake in my life! OK I admit, that may sound a bit pompous… sure I’ve made errors, big ones! but I’ve always learnt from them, so I don’t see them as mistakes, but as learning experiences.

The day I stop learning from them, is the day I start making mistakes!
