The full moon was exceptionally, vividly bright in the sky. The hike through the woods started at midnight and ended up in a clearing just as the moon was at its peak over the ridge. Laura had never quite seen anything like it: pure nature meets celestial inspiration – where earth meets heaven. Breathtaking, inspirational and motivational. Exceptional and gorgeous. Within the quite of the night, Laura said out loud to the others, “We are so winning right now.”
What is a win? A win is that feeling of pure gratification: either in sport, business, nature or any endeavor. A “win” isn’t how much money you collect or how shrewd you are in business. A “win” isn’t the number of lovers you can count. A “win” isn’t the power you have over someone. A “win” is the feel-good-now, smile-on-your face, appreciation, tolerance, satisfaction, recognition and attitude that comes with a moment in time. Your win is just over the next ridge.
“The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.”- Confucius
