This week's Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Double Up Edition's Weekly Challenge becomes fiercer as the competition heats up between two groups with a weekly budget is at stake.
The competition was powerfully evocative and emotional experience between the players and its TV viewers have witnessed the emotional waves of each players, the inappropriate behavior and emotional outbursts of the and appropriate reactions of hard losers. And tonight, the game ends with a thrill of victory to House B Team and a crushing agony of defeat to the losing House A Team.
My mind was riveted on the powerful feelings shown by the losing PBB housemates, their emotional outbursts and violent reaction in facing their failure.
I admit that losing is not merely as fun as winning, it is frustrating, disappointing and downright discouraging. If your ego or self-worth is tied up with the outcome of a competition, then losing can be big-time threatening to your sense of self. In these situations, losing can trigger feelings of inadequacy followed by protective surges of anger and even rage.
Failing is nothing more than an important part of the overall learning process in life. Keep in mind, you don't have to like losing. You can even hate it with a passion. However, you can't really get better in any competition or anything else you do unless you fail or lose enough times and then look to these failures for their valuable learning.
It’s absolutely critical that we learn to handle anger and intense emotions that get stimulated by tough losses and failures. Remember, when you let your anger steer your ship, you’ll end up on the rocks!
To achieve excellence you must learn to harness the success-generating power of your failures!
