Realize that if a door closed, it’s because what was behind it wasn’t meant for you.” – Mandy Hale
Something our society loves is winning. At times I believe we love it more than anything else in the world. We want the crown, the medal, the top of the podium, and everything else. We want it so badly that when we lose we don’t know what to do.
The truth is winning is a part of life but it is never something we are taught how to do. We are taught how to win but never how to lose.
When we lose it can trigger the desire to stop. We thoroughly believe that if we lost, even if we just lost once then we deserve to not continue on. While this may be true in very few areas of life, it is a mindset that cannot be carried into the rest of life.
Losing is inevitable but when you lose it is crucial that you look at it like it is a new beginning, the end of the chapter not the end of the book. Even if you didn’t win you still won a new beginning, you won a new chapter, you won a fresh start. There are wins and losses in everything in life, feel the loss but also feel the win, you have a new beginning.
