Top of Mind Thursday July 10, 2014: A Difference in Reality

Top of Mind Thursday
Reality changes with your point of view.

Leverage2Market LogoThe four World Cup finalists have very different views of this week’s games, depending on which end of the score they wound up owning.

For Argentina and Germany, it’s time for a short celebration before preparing for Sunday’s final match.

The Netherlands team goes home frustrated, knowing that but for one more penalty kick made or prevented, they could be headed to that championship game.

And Brazil, the host country, leaves in shock. They were on the losing side of one of the most lopsided scores in World Cup history.

We don’t win every contest we enter. The key question for the losers is how well did we compete? Did we give it our all? Was it a tough fight? Or were we simply outgunned?

The big question is what do we do with that reality after the match is over.
