Ten years ago I was a first year business owner- a cheer gym owner – and coach of a team that had a very losing season.
They didn’t just lose, they came in LAST every single competition we went to… Like dead last. But finally, at the VERY last event of the entire season, they got their first and only win. And here’s the thing- at the time, I really thought that win was what made me (and them) successful.
Ten years later, what I know for sure is this: the win was never the success. The success was the people that stuck by my side loss after loss. It’s easy to stand next to someone when they cross the finish line, but what you want is the people who cheer you on when you lag behind in the race. ✨
