Winners and Losers

For many years now our educators have been dismissive of the notion that society is an amalgam of winners and losers. 
In sport children (and their parents) have been encouraged to applaud the virtues of participating in the game rather than focus on the result of the competition that sporting occasions demand.
Undoubtedly this has broadened the appeal to a far greater number of people and unearthed talent that might otherwise have remained dormant, so the argument for diminishing the emphasis on competitive outcomes has substantial merit.
The drawn series between the visiting Lions and All Blacks however has belied the fundamental truth that society wants winners and losers. Media across the globe are bemoaning the fact that fans are universally deflated by a result that did not produce a clear outcome.
Celebrating the experience, to have participated, either as a player or spectator, and the acceptance that the teams could not be distinguished on points as desirable and legitimate goals for sport, are only seemingly acceptable in some fantasy PC world.
Winning and losing is an important part of the human psyche.
The learning should be that there are no universal winners and losers.
Every dog has their day!
Educators who wish to prepare our children for the real world should not forget these sentiments  that have been so overtly on display in these past few days.
Anyone who has followed Grant Dalton's journey to the America's Cup knows that he has lost many more times than he has won.
It is a lesson we should not forget.

I own a bracelet that reminds me to stay hopeful in our low days and stay humble in our highest, this helps me to keep my balance in life. Winning and losing are two of the most important experiences in our lives. We have our own goals and for us to achieve it, we go through circumstances that would help us grow. Losing does not tell us that we have failed to conquer our challenges, but it is a way for us to learn something new. Through these lessons we become a better person and achieve all our goals in life.

Advertising is your main tool to have the business ready to go. Actually, everybody is busy in their company marketing over the World Wide Web. Unfortunately, online company is scammed with scammers. On occasion the provider hires you freelance, or occasionally it is a site designer which orders the copy google At an identical time, if you decide on the most suitable company having excellent reviews and reputation, you will enjoy well composed works. http://google.com/

It's true! I really liked your post, it is very thinking provocative. I think that the education needs changes. Because what we have now is so lame. Children need to study there the true life, they must to be prepared for the future life. And what we have? The place where our children just sit so we could work safely.
