ODM DAILY 2 August 2022 – WHY BRONZE MEDALISTS ARE HAPPIER!
TOPIC: WHY BRONZE MEDALISTS ARE HAPPIER!
Have you noticed that a Bronze medalist is always happier than a Silver medalist at the end of the game? Studies have shown that the silver medalist should be happier, but it is not so, from experience!
Yes! It is not an incidental finding, but a proven fact in many research studies after studying the reactions of Silver medalists and Bronze medalists.
During the last AFCON (African Cup Of Nations football tournament), Cameroon won the third place (bronze) on penalties and they were jubilating. But Egypt lost the final on penalties to Senegal and they were crying.
Ideally, a Silver medalist should be happier than a Bronze medalist, but the human mind doesn’t work like mathematics. This happens because of the phenomenon known as COUNTERFACTUAL THINKING.
The Silver medalist thinks, “Oh, I couldn’t win the Gold medal. Why couldn’t I win the Gold medal?” The Bronze medalist thinks, “At least I got a medal!” Silver medal is won after losing, but Bronze medal is won after winning!
This also happens in our lives. We don’t appreciate what we have, but feel depressed over what we don’t have. Let us be grateful for our blessings! Learn to always count your blessings to stay positive and motivated!
The HOLY GHOST IS SAYING: “STOP LOOKING AT WHAT YOU LOST! START LOOKING AT WHAT YOU HAVE LEFT! I WILL DO NEW and GREAT THINGS FROM WHAT IS LEFT – THE ROD – IN YOUR HANDS! Ask Moses – Vs. 2: “And the LORD said unto him, ‘What is that in thine hand?’ And he said, ‘A rod.” Though he lost his Egyptian throne, that ROD in his hand was enough! Look at what you have left!
