Winning vs Losing

“For me the joy of athletics has never resided in winning.  I derive just as much happiness from the process as from the results.  I don’t mind losing as long as I see improvement or I feel I’ve done as well as I possibly could.  If I lose, I just go back to the track and work some more.” ~ Jackie Joyner-Kersee

“Some men give up their designs when they have almost reached the goal; while others, on the contrary, obtain a victory by exerting, at the last moment, more vigorous efforts than ever before.” ~ Herodotus

“Winning is not a sometime thing.  You don’t win once in a while, you don’t do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time.. Winning is a habit.  Unfortunately, so is losing.” ~ Vincent Lombardi
