Tag Archives: Kendo losing vs failure
An interesting facet about a kendo match is how different persons view losing. The definition of losing is “be deprived of or cease to have or retain (something)”, the definition of failure “is lack of success.” Everyone loses a kendo match from time to time yet even so some champions view the prospect of losing as the worst outcome. Losing a match means you have lost on that particular day, nothing more. Viewing losing as somehow a failure does not leave the one that loses any room for future improvement. Anytime you have lost a kendo match one must plan and develop strategies to prevent losing the next time. Discard a strategy that is not working and find a strategy the works for you. Not seeking a new strategy that is different from the one that is not working is truly the failure. Because each day and each opponent is different one can not avoid losing sometimes even for champions.
