Great players and teams play to win…always, always, always. I recommend that you do the same. There is a reason they keep score in sports – to separate the winners from the losers. I am suggesting that life is not much different. There are winners and losers in life, and I do not want you to join the latter group. It is easy to be a loser. Winning, on the other hand, takes a lot…sometimes all that you have.
The Williams Sisters are a good example
We marvel at individuals and teams who play the game hard and win all the time. A good example of a winner is Serena Williams. She is the best woman tennis player in the world. She won her first grand slam title at the age of 17 in 1999. Over the weekend she won her 23rd grand slam title which is an amazing achievement. No doubt – she is the best and always plays to win, even when she plays against her own sister.
I have already talked about playing fair – it is essential. All true winners, play fair and do not cheat. Simply put – cheaters are losers. I encourage you to play the game of life hard and play to win…always. Remember the words of the apostle Paul, a follower of Christ.
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 1 Corinthians 9:26-27
