When you win, say nothing. When you lose, say less. – Paul Brown
Meaning of this Quote
If you are winning in the fight in your life, various things tell you that you are winning. You will improve your skills to perfection. With these newly upgraded skills now, you can go far; you can fly high with these experiences that you have gathered all these years.
However, bragging about your most successful feet is nothing but a step to make you overconfident. Therefore, we should always be concerned about our failures instead of what feet we have achieved in our life.
When you lose, you will learn, gather more experiences to try again. These experiences will make your life better. They will tell you how to do change your game plan to win next time.
If you keep working consistently, success, wins will eventually come, but if you do not properly know what the things that have gone wrong the last time are, you will never understand what it took you to win the challenge.
These are the times when winners over-celebrate, and they think they can do anything. Then, they will eventually jump into the next challenge, thinking that they will win the next one eventually, and then they lose the next challenge miserably.
So never say a lot of things while you are winning. But when you lose, don’t be a sore loser. Talk more, precisely with yourself. This way, you will understand what has gone wrong and how you can make sure that you don’t lose the challenge next time for repeating the same mistake.
