Is a winner really a winner if he has never lost?

Think about that. How can someone be a winner if he never lost before. How would he know what it feels like to be a winner and appreciate it more if he didn't know the other side? Kids are great at showing this. If a kid always won and lost for the first time, what does he do. Cry his eyes out, right? Kind of like money too. Ever notice that poor people that become rich have a better appreciation for their wealth? What do you think?

hmmm well, i am trying to digest the question, but i guess it depends. in a contest, one is a winner among all the losers. so i guess it depends on the situation. in life, however, when we remain on top and has never experienced being down, then maybe the term is not winner. lol..now, i don't understand what i am saying. good day dj ! hehehe

I agree. And winning isn't everything is another important thing to think about. Starting at such a young age children become obsessed with being the best in everything; even having the best stuff. And that's sad!
