We’re going to talk about winners and losers. This is going to be really easy. There are no losers. We may have set backs. We may have a disappointment. But we are not losers.
Wayne Dyer says in his book Everyday Wisdom for Success,
“If you play the game of Life, know that you’ll have plenty of wins and losses,regardless of your talent level.”
So know that you win some, you lose some. The trick is getting back on target when we have a “loss”/ set back.
It helps to have a back up plan, then we can recover that much sooner. Sometimes if we have a disappointment, it’s ok to feel sad, two feel down, to feel a bit discouraged. Let those feelings happen and embrace them. Then get back on it. Go to the backup plan, or take time to evaluate what went wrong and make a new plan . Get some advice if you need it and are feeling stuck, and at a dead end. But don’t give up. Keep going. You have no idea how close you are to achieving your goal, your dream. Try again!
It is often no reflection on you or your skills. Sometimes things just go in a direction that’s not your choice. But just make your plan and go around the obstacle.
So, and I’m talking to myself as well, before you beat yourself up, just know in the game of Life you’ll have plenty of wins and losses regardless of your talent level.
So just smile … Pat yourself on the back for the effort made thus far … for your wins just far … and persevere.
So, turning to you dear reader…What advice would you give to someone who has suffered a setback? What advice do you give yourself when you suffer a disappointment or a setback?
Let’s share! Sometimes I do get discouraged but because my desire to achieve this or that goal is so strong that I pick myself up, I figure out what I did wrong or how I can improve and I press on.
How about you? What’s your philosophy? How do you cope? We can do this. We are winners. We care about ourselves, our friends, our loved ones . We can do it.
Just flow as best you can, with the ups and downs of life!
