Life is cyclical with many ups and downs. You think you’re getting ahead, and life comes and knocks you back down. The thing that makes the difference between the winners and the losers are their willingness to not accept failure. Whether it means finding another way, or going straight through the problem because victory is the goal.
By not accepting what life gives you, puts you in a different category. The category of people that become leaders. The self starters and the ones that dictate their life versus allowing it to be dictated to them.
Be the victor and not the victim. You will find comfort in one, and agony in the other.
