Are you winning?

By Marion Nixon

February 28, 2023


Did you watch the Women’s cricket T20 World Cup? It was great cricket and South Africa did well even though we lost to Australia.

The match left me thinking about winning and losing, not just in competitions, but in life. In SA we often say to someone working on a problem, ‘Are you winning?’  It’s much more encouraging than just asking how they’re doing.

The disappointment of the SA cricket team was obvious yet they summoned the energy to congratulate the Australians. Now the question is, does losing that match by just 20 runs make them believe that next time they can win and create the determination to improve their game, or do they criticise themselves into believing they’re not good enough?

How do you respond to disappointing results in challenges you’ve taken on? Do you acknowledge what you did achieve (this is the first time the SA team has reached the finals plus they beat the previous champions in the semi-finals) and then look at what you can improve?

If your Inner Critic has a field day putting you down after something hasn’t turned out as well as you wanted, talk back to it. Point out what you did achieve and the things you’ve learnt. In entrepreneurship it is recognised that you learn more from the businesses that don’t work out than from those that do, and those learnings make you a better entrepreneur. My ebook Turn Your Inner Critic into a Supportive Fan below, tells you how to reprogramme your Inner Critic into a supportive voice. It’s a useful skill to have as you can’t get rid of your inner voice, so best improve the way it serves you.
