Losing is for winners. Winners lose. And then they stand back on their feet and fight on. That’s what they do, knowing that they could lose again. And likely will. But that courage is what ultimately makes them a winner.
Remember when you thought you were special? That you were going to beat the odds. Then you figured out how bad things were. You started listening to the doubters. Ignorance isn’t just bliss. It’s the secret to staying motivated.
Success is a battle. There is no middle ground when conquering the hill. You can either stay in the foxhole or fight to the finish. Turning back just gets you shot in the back – and no one wants to finish as a coward.
You aren’t tough enough to win until you’re angry enough to do what’s extraordinary. That only comes when you have thin enough skin to feel the sting of getting of wrong and work relentlessly to make that feeling go away.
