You can overcome your defeat if you are willing to learn from it. As Robert Collier once said, “In every defeat is a lesson showing you how to win the victory next time.”

To overcome your defeat, here are six simple ways to do just that:

If you want to overcome your defeat, you must believe in yourself.

“Your chances of success in any undertaking can always be measured by your belief in yourself.”- Robert Collier

Whatever you wish to achieve in your life, you can achieve it if you believe in yourself. Things are not always going to go your way. Whatever you have, celebrate it. Don’t beat yourself up for what you don’t have. Always learn the act of celebrating what you. The more you celebrate, the more you will have to celebrate.

If you want to overcome your defeat, you must accept yourself as you are.

Dr. Maxwell Maltz once said, “Accept yourself as you are. Otherwise you will never see opportunity. You will not feel free to move toward it; you will feel you are not deserving.” You deserve to live your life. Don’t worry about what other people says about you. What really matters is what you say about yourself, your life.

If you want to overcome your defeat, you must not stand in your own way

The great Saul Aliskey once said, “The greatest enemy of individual freedom is the individual himself.” No matter how many times you have been defeated, if you want to overcome your defeat, you must not stand in your own way.

If you want to overcome your defeat, you must take responsibility for your life.

Al Bernstein said, “To the victor belong responsibilities.” Remember that you can’t change your defeat, but you can change how you react to it. But when you are clear about what you want, then you can overcome your defeat.

If you want to overcome your defeat, you must discipline yourself.

There are no overnight successes in life. Everything takes time to come to fruition. Plants take time to grow. Human beings take time to grow. If you can discipline yourself, you can achieve greatness in your life. Because success requires discipline. According to Jim Rohn, “Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.”

If you want to overcome your defeat, you must be willing to learn from it.

Bob Proctor says, “You are the only problem you will ever have and you are the only solution.” Don’t worry about defeat. All you need to do is to learn from your defeat. Open your mind to everything. To do that, according to Mark Twain, “All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence, and then success is sure.”

Do You Have The Courage To Follow Your Heart?

It takes courage to listen to our hearts. When you pay attention to what your heart is telling you to do, you hear better. You connect with yourself better.

If listening to our hearts is so important, why are we not doing it?

We don’t listen to our hearts because:

  • We lack the courage to do so
  • We want to fit in
  • We lack confidence
  • We don’t believe in ourselves
  • We don’t know what we want
  • We listen to other people

When you listen to your heart,

  • You learn better
  • You know what you want to achieve in life
  • You feel good about yourself
  • You connect with your real self.

If you want to achieve success in life, you must connect with your real self- your inner self. When you listen to your heart, you are at peace with yourself.

If you ignore what your intuition is telling you, you are at war with yourself. Your heart is your master planner. Your intuition is your guide. Listen to your heart. Listen to your intuition.

Attention is key. No matter what, don’t permit people to dictate your life for you. Listen to your heart. Do you have the courage to listen to your heart?
