Gotta Love to Play!

April 4, 2008

I love the winning, I can take the losing,
but most of all I love to play.

Boris Becker

A good attitude to have. With this outlook, life is so much easier. Because if the end result is not always what we had hoped for, we can always say: “Oh well… at least I had fun playing, and I gave it my best shot!” It’s like I’ve said before, it’s not always the goal that bring happiness, but more often the journey.

    In competitions people expect their team or player to win as if it didn´t mean that someone has to loose. But if 10 teams play, 9 will loose (and they may still have done a great job and really tried). When it comes to life I think it´s really important to keep in mind that to win doesn´t mean to make others loose. Then you haven´t really won at all. But to do as good as you can, not on the expence of others, is a game where you always win in the end.

    Kloka ord från Boris Becker…

    Läste idag intervjun i Aftonbladets söndagsbilaga, en jätte bra intervju som vinklar hur livet kan bli, när allt inte är så där perfekt som det brukar vara från början. Jag hoppas ER son nu i fortsättningen slipper fler operationer och får må jätte bra!!

    Kram

    The reward is the journey.

    Yes, well put. Too much emphasis is placed on succeeding, by society. But does one have to win, finish on top, to be successful? A better way is to love what you do, to love whatever it is that you play. If simply doing it provides you happiness and a thrill, then any victories along the way are gravy.
