Winning can mean getting a promotion at work, winning the lottery, getting a date for saturday night. The truth is any such external stimuli offers only ephemeral happiness.

Instead, win a competition done against yourself.

Do something you haven’t done before. Something that you have been too fearful to attempt. Something that you think about all the time but never dared take the steps to do it. This something when achieved, can offer you something more. The strength and belief that you did it. A feeling that never leaves. That’s winning.
