(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.
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.
