The thing about winning and losing

“The thing about winning and losing” was written by guest contributor, Babajide Faseyi.

Sometimes you’ll win and sometimes you’ll end up losing. Sometimes you’ll think you have it won, only to find out that it wasn’t a win after all. That’s just the way life is and no one will ever only experience one side of the winning and losing coin.

You may try to avoid winning and losing by saying to yourself: I am only going to attempt the things in life where I can’t win or can’t lose. But there aren’t any such things in life. Everything you attempt to do in life comes with its own set of ups and downs.

The game of life is made up of opposites. What winning and losing do is that they make you carry yourself as someone who is more of a winner than a loser, or more of a loser than a winner, but neither of those is true about who you really are.

Who you really are is just a player in the game of life who is playing the game like everybody else is playing the game. The game of life is a sweet game regardless of the fact that there are ups and downs and winners and losers.

Don’t carry yourself around as a winner or a loser because in this life, you are guaranteed to experience both. Rather, carry yourself with dignity and respect and a sense that who you really are is beyond the ups and downs of winning and losing. And you are playing the game of life like everybody else in order to experience the different sides of what life has to offer.

Blessings, Babjide

About the Author: My name is Babajide Faseyi.  I was born and raised in Nigeria and then moved to the United States for college at the age of 19.  In my 20’s, I became acutely aware that there was more to life than I had been taught and this led me to a deep search.  I read voraciously.  After a period of disillusionment with not having an outlet for the creativity that I felt within myself, I encountered Eckhart Tolle’s book, The Power of Now.  And thus, the journey of knowing who I truly am and the discovery of what I have to offer creatively began.  The links to my facebook pages where my writings are posted are – and
