Our losses can change us. But we cannot allow them to control us.
Winning creates a positive cycle in our lives. When we win – we gain confidence. The more confidence we have, the more likely we are to take action when it’s necessary. However, losing can also create a cycle in our lives – a negative one. Losses, especially when they pile up, can lead to insecurity. When we are insecure, we doubt ourselves. It causes us to hesitate when making decisions. Even if we know what we should do, we are reluctant to do it.
We can allow our losses to impact our future decisions and let them define us. Or, we can choose to change – to grow, and to learn from our losses. The choice is ours. Do we get bitter – or do we get better?
