One defeat does not determine a persons potential nor does it determine how high they have the ability to rise. Oftentimes we place more emphasis and power on a loss rather than a win primarily because of our natural reaction to both events. We respond and react to a loss with a mental attitude of the sky is falling or the world is ending. That is a typical reaction to a loss. Although your reaction can be typical, your goal should be to ensure that it’s temporary.
What matters after you’ve failed or fallen short of your goal(s) is that you get back up again. Figure out why you failed, analyze the reasons and make the necessary adjustments to secure a victory moving forward. Maintain the understanding that failure is an event and it is not a person. Just because you experience failure doesn’t necessarily make you one.
A loss of any kind can certainly be devastating; I know. What is even more devastating after you’ve experienced a loss is if you choose to wallow in your sorrow and marinate on the loss. Thinking about a loss never created a win. If you want to win, you have to be determined to win. You have to do whatever it takes in your power to create and produce your desired outcomes.
Do you want to win or are you satisfied with losing?
