513. Games and Attitude

If you start a game, finish it. Don’t forfeit. Don’t quit. Win or lose, see it through. Even though it’s only a game, keep your self-respect and see it through regardless of the outcome. How you play games is an indicator of your character; it’s a small thing, but it’s real. There are worse things than losing, like delaying the inevitable, having a bad attitude about it, or quitting when it’s clear you won’t win. Everyone loses now and then, and the same goes for winning. Your attitude makes the difference.
