They hate losing.
They hate it with a passion.
Paraphrasing Kevin “KD” Dorsey, “Passion = How much pain are you willing to endure to achieve your goals.”

What are the keys commonalities between these people?
- Learning, education, and practice.
- Have you ever watched these people after an event? They are happy of course to be on the winning side, but they always say something like, “Well, we did this well, but we still need to work on this and that”.
- In some cases, they simply say, “We were terrible on executing this one thing”, even if they did win.
This is why when they win the ultimate in their sport, their joy is pure. They are embracing the motions of their passion that got them there. And for a time, they can enjoy the ultimate.
