What Losing Teaches Us

A few months ago, I was thrilled to learn I had been nominated for a Hometown Media Award for the TV show I did with fellow Inside919er, Diogenes Ruiz. I had the press release ready to send out announcing my win—-but then—this week I learned I did not win in my category.

Was I disappointed? Yes, but then I remembered an interview with Michael Jordan some years ago when he was talking about the years leading up to his NBA championships with Chicago. He said, “Losing teaches us those things that make us better.”

Losing is a necessary and important life lesson. Losing not only teaches us humility but it also teaches us how valuable it is to dedicate ourselves to something. If you are dedicated to your business—if you truly LOVE what you do, the accolades and praise won’t matter. No amount of awards can take the place of having satisfied and happy clients who walk away appreciating how much you’ve helped them.

Success is about what you do when you don’t win or when you don’t get the sale; it’s how you handle a loss.

Yes, there is still a press release to be written because being a finalist among hundreds of others is a victory in itself.

Losing Weight & Organization

1 in 10 U.S. workers report increased snacking during the day because of concerns over the current economic situation. 43% say they have gained weight in their current job.

If your kitchen doesn’t support a healthy lifestyle (no room to cook meals so frozen food or takeout are the best options, etc.) you might be sabotaging yourself. A disorganized environment could be making you console yourself with food; most often sugar, fat, chemical and processed foods.



So, if losing weight and better health is a priority, getting organized is a step in the right direction!

Families May Be Losing Their Home Movies and Tapes!

Holidays fill us with memories of the past, but how long has it been since you’ve taken that proverbial “stroll down memory lane” by watching your old home movies and tapes? Well, if you hurry, you can give a holiday gift to yourself and to your entire family that will last more than a lifetime – much more! Home Video Studio – Visalia, CA., an affiliate of the largest national network of home video studios, can help you preserve your precious home movies and videotapes that are probably gathering dust in your attic or garage. More important, your old 8 mm movie films and VHS videos are deteriorating every day! Even if you still have the old equipment to watch them, they may already be unplayable.

Arthur Zepeda, national winning Video Producer/Editor and Owner of Home Video Studio – Visalia, CA., advises everyone to “search through your home immediately! Find all of those old 8 mm home movie films and old VHS tapes and get them transferred to DVD as soon as possible.”

Mr. Zepeda knows what’s he’s talking about. He has been rescuing movies and tapes for Visalia, CA. residents in his home-based video studio for years. “Some of the films and tapes we see are already in very poor condition. And it would be a shame to lose those family histories when it’s so easy to move them all onto DVD.”

Mr. Zepeda’s system not only transfers the movies and videos to DVD, but also it allows you to add titles and even music thereby creating a memorable experience for generations to come.

“The DVDs,” Mr. Zepeda adds, “really are the gifts that keep on giving, generation after generation. Imagine your grandchildren or their grandchildren being able to watch and hear their grandparents or great-great grandparents long after they are gone! Or, just think about being able to relive your own childhood simply by popping in a disk that will preserve those memories into the next century!”

Whether for the holidays or any special occasion, Home Video Studio’s service solves the frequent problem of what gift to give to the “hard to buy for” relative. He explains, “We can transfer any kind of film or video to DVD, but we can also do other creative keepsakes, for example, putting slides and photos on DVD, editing your vacation videos, making sports highlight programs for your son or daughter, and even repairing broken video tapes.” Mr. Zepeda also mentions that they can also transfer audiotapes and cassettes to CD.

Mr. Zepeda hopes that folks will contact him soon, especially if they want to create a Christmas gift for this season. “It takes some time to transfer the movies and tapes to DVD,” he adds. “We don’t want anyone to be disappointed. But whether it’s for the Holidays or after the Holidays, you really do need to preserve and, in some cases, improve those precious memories!”
