Now I recognize that the title of this very brief editorial piece may sound confusing and contradictory to many, but there is a certain logic to it. It really does make sense.

Sometimes you really do need to lose in order to win.

If that sounds crazy to you, here are a few things you absolutely need to lose if you hope to truly succeed:

  • Excuses
  • Negative people
  • Bad habits
  • Fearing change
  • Blaming others for our mistakes
  • Ego
  • Doubt
  • Procrastination

If you are able to discard all of these, you are already a winner even before the contest, any contest begins. Sometimes when you lose, you gain. Yogi Berra and Casey Stengel would be proud.

And here’s another kernel of wisdom from the incomparable Michael Jordan about success…

“Some people want it to happen;

 Some people wish it would happen;

 Some people just make it happen”

[Ed: On this Joyous Day of Christ’s Birthday, be thankful, full of hope and determination entering the new year. We’re knee-deep in a battle to return this Nation to God and to the consent of the governed.

I hope you and your family have a Blessed and Merry Christmas!

God Bless you and God Bless America!]
