You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare and expect to win. -Zig Ziglar
Winning is a mindset. You have to believe, know and prepare to win. One of the problems I faced growing up was fear of winning or having my dreams come true. I felt more comfortable with defeat or disappointment than victory. Never understood why that was the case?
There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance the next time. – Malcolm X
Next time you feel defeated think about this quote. Go to the balcony, process the full picture and find the opportunities for self-growth as well as improved performance beneath those feelings of failure.
