On Winning and Losing

There is one truth in every sport, and life. You should strive to win, not not to lose! In the words of one the best commentators of the game of cricket,

“The more you get defensive trying not to lose, the more is your chance of ending up on the losing side. That’s the great truth of every sport.” —Harsha Bhogle said at Adelaide Oval on January 27, 2008.

In life, most of us take precautions, which is not bad. We keep thinking of the future, keep trying securing it. That is not bad either. But in most cases, we aim to be on the side that has not lost, and never try to be the side that has won, even though all of us want to be on the winning side.
