Life Is Not About Winning At All Costs


An important quote came across my desk last week… well actually, it appeared on my phone, while I was having lunch in the kitchen, but you get the picture…

And the quote read:

“It is more important to be a good person than it is to be a good tennis player.” Ash Barty

Which is something that is easily achievable for me because I am a lousy tennis player. I can’t run and I can’t serve. And I can’t volley.

However, the quote has a deeper implication than its literal meaning.

The quote is really telling you the reader to be a good person over and above whatever else you do.

The quote is really raising a hand, or raising a finger, at those who have a WIN AT ALL COSTS approach to life, and who leave a trail of devastation and destruction in their paths as they travel on determinably.

Sure, life is about results, but it is also about relationships as well.

And when the quest for results comes at the expense of relationships, then you’ve got to ask the question as to whether that sort of person who behaves in such a mercenary manner, is the kind of person that you really want to be around?

Do you want to have someone like that as a friend?

Do you really want to do business with someone who behaves so clearly in such a mercenary manner?

As a business owner, do you think that being known as a nice person is more desirable than being known as a not so nice person who is good at his craft?

Business owners do need to be strong, but not at the expense of being nasty at the same time.

You should always be fair.

But you can be firm and fair at the same time.

And when you do, you will be respected for being fair…
