The Time You Lost But Won

What if that failure was actually a victory in disguise? Stories to help you identify the bigger win.

The ‘lose but win’ moment. We all know the feeling of putting our all into a goal, only to fall short at the last hurdle. But what if that failure was actually a victory in disguise?

Take the movie Cool Runnings, the Jamaican bobsled team may not have won the Olympic Gold they were after, but they learned the true meaning of teamwork and resilience in the face of adversity. Their lose-but-win moment became a powerful symbol of the human spirit and a reminder that success isn’t always measured in medals.

Sharing stories of the times you found yourself falling short of a goal but gained insight, a skill or a new relationship in the process, is a great way of helping others assess progress holistically and realise that sometimes the bigger win isn’t the one you thought you were aiming for.
