DAY 058 – Defeat is a Matter of Perspective
Author and motivational speaker Roger Crawford states that, “Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional.” I spent a large part of my life running from what challenged me or rather hiding from it. I have always remained where it is safe. I’ve spent years being a risk adverse rule follower. As I got older and my responsibilities grew, I found that encountering challenges was inevitable. I learned to thrive when challenged. By doing the research, setting a plan, and executing on the task, I found that most challenges could be overcome. I begin to accept defeat as a lesson learned rather than a loss. So that even in defeat, I walked away with something that would help me going forward. I often have feelings of uneasiness. Where in the past, I would retreat to my sanctuary and remain tucked away in my safe space, I am now more apt to move forward. With great rewards comes great risk and I have found no easy way around that.
