Embrace Defeat

Optimism Thought of the Week.

Why is defeat essential for success?


We fear defeat. Just that simple sentence brings up two of our most frightening components that we live with daily (fear, defeat). We fear because at one time we were defeated. Defeat knocks the wind out of you, or defeat can cause you to withstand the wind.

Defeat is not the enemy, defeat is the necessary ingredient for success. We will never see how strong we really are, until our strength is tested. If you don’t become friends with defeat, you will never get the opportunity to meet his nemesis, success. – Glennel Hardy
