I learned much more from defeat than I ever learned from winning.
It hurts to fail. I’ve failed and I’ve never liked it. A mentor gave me some wonderful advice, which I share with you. He said, “Ray, give yourself 24 hours to be upset. When the 24 hours are over, ask yourself what lessons failure taught you. They are there if you’ll look. Be grateful for them, learn from them. Then, shake it off and move on.
When has failure taught you an important lesson?
What was the lesson you learned?
How did your failure make you a better person?
You carry the torch of a champion. You may not fully recognize it, but it is with you, wherever you go. Its fire is your winning spirit. ~ Denis Waitley
