Stay positive. It’s inevitable that you will encounter disappointments, setbacks, and defeats, but it’s not how many times you get knocked down – it’s how many times you get back up. It’s through mistakes and failures that we can learn a lot about ourselves and that we are given opportunities for growth. When you look back, you will likely see these experiences as valuable because they showed you how strong you are and what you can rise from.
Game Plan: Let every defeat motivate you, taking a lesson from it that can help you moving forward. Recall times from the past when you have risen from defeats and you wouldn’t let anything keep you down. To know hope, you must know despair. When you do experience a setback, use it as fuel to keep going.
