Finding the victories in the defeats
It is in our defeats we can find the lessons for the greatest victories. We were all created for victories. We can only be truly victorious after we learn how to deal with defeats. We are never finished when we are defeated; we are only finished when we quit. The majority of men quit after a defeat but only the few, the brave, will search their souls to find the victories in their defeats.
Here are 7 important questions to ask yourself when you lose an important battle. Answer the questions truthfully, without self-deception, and you will not only endure, but you will prevail.
1. Did I demonstrate class after the defeat?
2. What cause and why am I really fighting?
3. What lessons can I learn from this defeat?
4. What good is going to come out of the defeat?
5. What will I do different during the next battle?
6. What and how would I prepare for the next battle?
7. What can I learn from the strategies and tactics of the opponent?
Will you join my cause to fight mediocrity in the world?
Pass these nuggets on to others.
We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give. Be a giver in a world of takers.
Be blessed and be a blessing to others.
