Difference in Temporary Defeat and Failure
The man or woman who understands the difference between temporary defeat and failure is very fortunate in their learning and understanding.
They understand that defeats are learning processes. A good NBA team will lose 20 to 30 times in a given season, yet that team may still win the NBA title.
The season was not a failure.
More fortunate than the man or woman who understands the above difference is the woman or man who has learned the truth that the planting of success is simply asleep in every defeat they experience.
The failure believes the seed of success was killed in a defeat, not understanding it was simply dormant. If you totally understand the difference, you will be a totally successful person!
What is something you’ve taken as a failure not realizing it was a temporary defeat?
