Defeat is Temporary
If you play sports, you know this is true. You can be way behind in a game or race but wind up winning in the end. Or, lose the game/race and then win the next one. Life is full of wins and losses.
While no one wants to lose, defeats teach us lessons and make us more appreciative of the wins. Defeats are part of a full life. They are also often temporary. So, don’t make them mean more than they do. Don’t give up and make them permanent. Stay in the game. Learn. Do better. Win the next one. You got this.
