Once you change the definition of winning , loss as understood in its classical sense fails to have its negative impact on you. If winning hearts with your performance matters to you, the medal-tally will have no significance. It is always about winning...but winning is not always about medals, trophies and cups. It is not so much in your hands and skills as much as it is in your hearts and mind, even if you lose the final tally ! Go out and win.
