Overview

Its not whether you get knocked down, its whether you get up. ~ Vince Lombardi Long ago, we recognized that one way to establish a human pecking order would be to compete in trials of strength and skill without weapons. That way we could get a second opportunity to compete with our opponents, ...a rematch!
As we evolved, we began to train athletes, often choosing younger and more agile competitors for contests.
Humankind has never lost the desire to compete for supremacy,
and athletics remains a relatively safe activity in which we compete for bragging rights. While winning is always gratifying, it is not the only satisfactory outcome. Past great athletes and sages have remarked on many precious life lessons gleaned from losses:
