The same holds true in sports, and life. For example, a team may “win” a game on the scoreboard but suffer injury or fatigue to such an extent that they are weakened and made worse. A man may earn many dollars but sacrifice his honor or his family in the process. Before you compete, consider the cost of victory as well as the cost of defeat, and proceed appropriately. Victory is meant to strengthen, not weaken. Stay strong!
