John Wooden, in the forward to Sometimes You Win Sometimes You Learn, writes about a guarantee in the real world:
“And that real world is going to sting. It is going to hurt. Sometimes it is going to bump and bruise you; other times it is going to knock you off your feet. The losses are going to come in every shape and size, and hit you in every area of your life, from your finances to your heart to your health, and more – that much is guaranteed. ”
But the guarantee of loss is not a guarantee of failure, of despair. There is hope, and hope is a choice.
And that choice is what John Maxwell’s Sometimes You Win Sometimes You Learn is all about.
