Access Point: Play to Win
"Are you playing to win or playing not to lose?"
- James McPartland
Airplanes deteriorate faster when not in use than when being used in the way they were designed for. And while ships may appear safer in the harbor, that is not what they were built for.
Each of us has great gifts, talents, and skills that we were uniquely created to use. And, 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 are inevitable.
