Whether you like it or not, everyone loses
You win some, and you lose some. Even if during these recessionary times it feels like there is more losing than winning.
But it's how you handle your loss that determines if you are going to be a long-term winner in business and your career.
In our competitive culture, losing often means you are "below average," "mediocre," or "not good enough." We are taught at a young age that being on the losing side is not the place we want to be. Oftentimes when we lose, we just want to pack it up and give in.
