The psychology of winning - and losing

Here are some reasons why learning to lose is just as important as learning to win. In school, some children do very well in spelling or they always win in sports. While it is important for parents to teach children to win and succeed, teaching them to lose is just as important. By showing them that losing is not the end of the world, children learn that life is full of second chances. W inning a game or being the best in the class gives children a good feeling about themselves and makes them proud.

Chambers, and Ian P. Chambers and Frederick Verbruggen. We are very grateful to Myriam Mertens for testing all subjects and providing valuable data management support.

The unbending truth is that a race has exactly one winner. Every other competitor loses, and depending on their expectations, each of them has to deal with varying degrees of the emotions that come with losing. A single loss can be hard enough to deal with, let alone a string of losses that shake our very ability to perform. No matter what the sport, every competitor hates losing, and for good reason! Besides the blow to the ego, losing actually hurts; not in an abstract way, but in a very real manner!

As a competitor it is important to understand that you will experience winning and losing because both worlds exist for everyone, at all levels. As kids, the expectation is that they win.

Let me state the obvious: In every athletic contest there is always a winner and a loser, a winning squad or a losing one. As expected, the winner may experience a broad range of emotions in varying degrees of intensity. Similarly, the loser experiences his own wide array of emotions from distraught, depressed, angry, resentful, sad, anxious, like a failure, frustrated, inadequate, cheated, or sometimes, even satisfied and successful. Many athletes, parents and coaches have learned through experience how to successfully ride these strong emotional currents. As a result, their behaviors in response to them are both effective and appropriate. On the other hand, some athletes, parents or coaches get completely overwhelmed by these emotional waves and as a consequence, their behaviors are ineffective, inappropriate and, at times, quite infantile.
