Multiple Teams · Winning is Giving

Winning is giving your best self away

Winning is serving with grace every day

You’ll know that you’ve won when your friends say it’s true.

“I like who I am when I’m around you.

You look for the best in the others you see

And you help us become who we’re trying to be.”

Winning is helping someone who’s down

It’s sharing a smile instead of a frown.

It’s giving your children a hug by the fire

And sharing the values and dreams that inspire.

It’s giving your parents the message “I care.

Thanks, Mom and Dad, for being so fair.”

Winners are willing to give more than get

Their favors are free, you’re never in debt.

Winning is giving one hundred percent

It’s paying your dues, your taxes, your rent

It’s trying and doing, not crying and stewing.

Winners respect every color and creed,

They share and they care for everyone’s need.

The losers keep betting that winning is getting

But there’s one law that they keep forgetting

And this is the Law you can live and believe

The more that you give, the more you’ll receive!
