|Blog: Breaking Away Victory or Not|
|Thursday, 03 November 2011|
We can learn a lot from both winning and losing in life. Trust Mr. Jaeger on this one. Dave, Mike, Mooch, and Cyril take on the college guys in the final race. Here's the question: If they win, what benefits do they get? Conversely, if they lose, what benefits do they get?
Answer both sides of this, and identify at least three benefits to each outcome, then say which ending would be better, in your opinion.
3 benefits to winning
3 benefits to losing
Your opinion of the best ending
For those of you who don't think losing can help someone: If I write a story that does not get published, I might learn something. Or if a politician I don't like makes some decisions I don't like, I may do something. If I fail, I might try harder, I might try a different way of winning, I might change the rules for what is winning, I might realize my limitations, I might acknowledge that others should win and deserve it, or I might give up and try something better for me. Also, if you win, you're often expected to keep winning, which creates pressure.
I hope you can think of reasons for winning being good all on your own.
