Do not accept defeat!
Once you accept defeat, it is easier to be defeated. Once you accept losing, it is easier to lose.
Defeat is a distraction that is designed to keep you from becoming the best version of you. When you focus on the pain that is often associated with defeat, it begins to control your life and define every facet of your existence.
It is important to keep in mind that there is a difference between experiencing defeat and seeing yourself as defeated. Because you suffered a loss does not mean that you are a failure. Not overcoming an obstacle simply means that a goal you were working toward did not materialize as you had imagined. A process or step did not work out because the right strategy has not yet been adopted, which suggests that you should keep adjusting and experimenting with various corrective actions until you accomplish your goal.
Do not see loss as an enemy to be conquered. Instead, see loss or defeat as an ally that could help you accomplish that coveted and ridiculously impossible goal. Rather than focus on the pain of setbacks, refocus on the goals you are trying to accomplish and use that pain as fuel to become stronger spiritually, mentally and physically.
So, do not accept defeat. Keep a positive mindset and attitude, and remind yourself that you are good enough. Accept that you are a uniquely compelling individual with unlimited potential. Embrace the mindset that you were born to live a life of purpose.
