If you really want to make a difference in your own life, you must learn the act of accepting defeat. If you want to grow, you can’t avoid defeat. All you need to do is to learn from it.

In order to learn from defeat, you must first accept it as a learning opportunity. If you don’t accept it, you can’t learn from it. According to Robert Collier, “In every adversity there lies the seed of an equivalent advantage. In every defeat is a lesson showing you how to win the victory next time.” Defeat is your friend, not your enemy. If you want to make it your friend, you must accept it as your friend.

If you want to be successful, failure is normal. You just need to learn how to manage it. If you can manage your failures, you can make it in life.

There is no success without failure. But failures bring success to you. So when you make a decision to succeed in your life, even when you don’t know what is going to happen in the future, your thoughts will drive you into taking the right actions. You know, without the right action, failure is certain. Period. But you can change it. To change it, you must be willing to change. You must be willing to learn from failure. You can do it. You have done it before. You can do it again.

You can succeed in life if you keep your mind set in the right direction all the way through to your final destination (if there is one). You can succeed in your life if you are willing to learn from failure.

Remember, it doesn’t matter how many times you have been knocked down. Focusing on getting back up is what is going to get you going. It doesn’t matter how many times you have been knocked down. When you are down, don’t stay down. Because if you want to do well in your life, you must get back up. If you don’t get back up, you will never succeed. H. G. Wells said, “If you fell down yesterday, stand up today.” If you fell down yesterday, you must do whatever you can to get back up. If you don’t do it, you will never succeed. The choice is yours.

Don’t Sell Yourself Short… You Are More Important Than You Think

Happiness comes from embracing your life. It doesn’t come from hiding yourself, your life. Don’t hide yourself from success. Open yourself to it. If you want good things, you must stay where good things are happening. If not, you will miss them.

If you want light, don’t stay in the dark. You must get out of where you are hiding. Go out there and meet positive people. Go out there and meet happy people. Happy people will not come to you; you must go out and meet them. They are waiting for you. On the contrary, unhappy people are waiting for you to come and make them happy.

If you isolate yourself, you are isolating your growth. You are isolating your life. You are isolating your progress. And most importantly, you are hurting yourself. You are hurting people, because you have missed the opportunity to increase your happiness.

Happiness is everywhere. Every minute is an opportunity for you to connect with positive people. Every day is an opportunity for you to share your love, your happiness. Every day is an opportunity for you to make a difference in your life. Now is an opportunity to change the world. You can! You have what it takes to do it. So don’t waste it.

In order to be happy, you must go out and search for your spot. Position yourself where happy people can see you. Sell yourself to the right people. Work on the right project. Don’t sell yourself short. You are better than you think. Pursue your greatness, not your weakness. According to Robert Fulghum, “Don’t sell yourself short. You may never have proof of your importance, but you are more important than you think.” In other words, if you want to achieve greatness in your life, you must NOT settle for less. Never!
