My coaching school just completed a 12 week question-asking competition.
I participated every week that I could, which was all but one.
Of the first 11 rounds, I made the top 10 results in 2 of those weeks.
Week after week, I took what felt relevant for me to learn from and I grew not only professionally, but also personally.
Regardless of the fact that I was often not ‘successful’ in my answers, simply from putting myself out there each week and playing the game, I felt I was winning as there were many things I gained each week through this process.
Turns out, the last scenario of the game was to ask a question of yourself from your higher coach. I found a question that has been inspiring and motivating me every day since connecting to it. So much so, that I already considered myself a big winner from all I am gaining each day as I ask myself this question now.
Today I learned I was the big winner of this final week’s question and the entire competition!
While the acknowledgment is fun, the truth is I already felt I won as a result of showing up each week to play, and receiving my own inspiration from this last personal question.
How do you define winning?
