“Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn,” says the title of John C. Maxwell’s book. This means we never lose but learn. It requires a mindset change detaching us from outcomes and focusing on processes.

We understand the implications of evolution by the outcomes, but every one of them is the result of a process.

If we set our mindset on cherishing every process experienced in our life, every event becomes a learning opportunity and opens our mind, heart, and hands to new possibilities.
