Life is a series of games. Sometimes you lose, sometimes you win. We all know this.
And yet, we often keep on playing games we lose. Why is that? Don’t you like winning? I do. You know what I don’t like? Losing.
I don’t mind losing a few games, but overall, I want to win. And I don’t think you’re any different. I’ve never met a person who said, “I LOVE to lose.”
That person doesn’t exist. People who pretend they don’t mind losing gave up on life years ago. I get it. Life is hard and when you lose a lot, you become numb. That’s why this concept is so important.

Getting started with anything is easy. Anyone can become a writer, singer, designer, illustrator, entrepreneur, you name it. But only a few keep going.
For example, a lot of people want to start a business. But it seems like the emphasis is on starting. Most businesses don’t exist after 5 years.
Same thing with creative professions. Aspiring writers start off strong and write for several days, weeks or months, and then move on to the next thing that catches their attention.

What human traits predict career and life success? I’ve been curious about that question since I was 16. But at that age I didn’t think ambition was important.
That was also the time I became interested in personal development. I wanted to improve my life and become a better student, friend, son and human being.
I decided to build a good life for myself and the people in my life. Now, 16 years later, I think that decision was probably the most important decision of my life.
