Why read Monday Morning Power?

You will find a consistency and a focus in all of my content that can change your attitude which can fuel a positive change in your life, if you want it to. If you are happy with your attitude and your life and see no reason for changing, then you either already have a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude), or you are a victim and want to hold onto your misery. These postings will then serve to fortify the person with PMA, or, hopefully, convince the "victim" that there is a better way. This site will contain essays, poems, stories, humor and links, all with the same goal: The pursuit, capture, care and feeding of a Positive Mental Attitude. I have had readers tell me that they have spent hours on my site and feel great about themselves both during and after. I log onto my own site frequently to help fuel my attitude; I hope you will as well.

Are You Prepared For Success? (Section II - Installment #25f "A Smile” – Female version)

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

If you are a male reader please go to #25m

(If this is your first time on this site, I recommend that you begin with "Are You Prepared For Success?" [Introduction])

A Smile

Let others cheer the winning woman,
There's I hold worthwhile;
'Tis she who does the best she can,
Then loses with a smile;
Beaten she is, but not to stay
Down with the rank and file;
That woman will win some other day,
Who loses with a smile.

(Based on a poem of unknown authorship)

I strongly suggest that you write down your immediate reaction, after passionately reading this poem.
  • Think back to when you tried your hardest to win but didn't and were a sore loser.
    • List those times.
  • When did you graciously accept defeat?
    • List those occasions.
  • Try and recall how you felt after each.

Hi Mel!

I read this poem, and the first thing that came to mind was: I don't lose with a smile, cause I hardly lose (it all depends on what one considers losing...sometimes, it may seem like I'm losing but in the end: I win! I am that patient...)!
However it is true, one should lose with a smile - it would be an indicator that we already have a plan for next time, and thus we shall win next time :)!

I lost twice with my brother, and accepted it graciously:

1. at track race - he's much better than I am. In fact, I hate running! I didn't feel anything, cause I really detest running; I was just indulging my bros.
2. monopoly - he cheated. But hey, he's my baby I let him be (but deep down I wanted to kill him)!

I lost in a handball match at school:
1.I played well, and because the captain of the team didn't accept my strategy, we lost 31-1! I didn't accept it too well, there was a brawl over it (I was 10 years old lol)!

And that was it, cause after this match I always made sure I'd win in public lol! I only allow my brother win me :).

Wow, I think this is the first time that the length of the comment exceeded the length of the post. Thank you for sharing.

We can't win them all and I learned this a long, long time ago. I will also admit that there have been times I wasn't a very good loser either. Great post on how to approach losing. Have a great day. :)
