Don’t be Defeated

If there is one lesson I am learning as I grow up and begin working with people it is this…No matter what you do, you won’t please them all. Not everyone is going to like you. You can either a) let it ruin your day or, b) let it push you to be better. It would be a whole lot easier to throw up the white flag and give up. But, it is a lot more courageous to smile, keep chugging a long and never let anyone get in your way of your success. The only person that can keep you from being successful is yourself. You will win some and you will lose some, but just because you lose doesn’t mean you are defeated. It means your growing stronger. Strength and wisdom aren’t developed over time. They are developed through struggles, experiences and failures. So, as my mother used to say, “You are going to get back on that horse and you’re gonna have fun damnit!”

  1. Well said! Sometimes it’s a challenge to remember “this too shall pass” when times get tough, but it always does.

    Thanks for the post!
