In the words of Ferdinand Foch, “The will to conquer is the first condition of victory.” To conquer other people, you must first conquer yourself. You must develop the courage, the power to face yourself. Find the courage to be your true self. Don’t pretend to be who you are not. Don’t hide yourself. Give yourself the power to pursue your dreams, to defeat your fears, and to conquer yourself.

When you are faced with a problem, believe in yourself, face it, and move on. Don’t cry. Don’t complain. The Scripture says, “All things are possible to him who believes.” Just keep learning to be what you really are. According to Henri- Frederic Amiel, “Learn to … be what you are, and learn to resign with a good grace all that you are not.” From now on, resign from treating yourself badly. Resign from pretending to be who you are not. Because life is not about pretending; life is about loving. Life is about sharing. Life is about doing. If you are not learning to be what you are, you are learning to be who you are not. That is scary!

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.”
