Access Point <Play To Win>

“In the great game of life, we either play to win or play not to lose. No matter what the outcome, we can never win when we play not to lose.”

- James K. McPartland

Airplanes deteriorate faster when not in use than when being used in the way that they were designed for. And while ships may appear safer in the harbor, that is not what they were built for.

You have great gifts, talents, and skills that you were uniquely created to use. Like in the preceding examples, when we are not living with passion - and on purpose - we deteriorate from either misuse or lack of proper use.

Even if you go "all in" and do not get the result you are after - you will have played to win. If you are truly committed to your outcome, you will take the "until" approach. Keep at it "until" and the learning and ultimate win is inevitable.
