Losses vs. Failures

December 13, 2020 1 min read

Andy speaking into a microphone

I see “losses” and “failures” differently.

I am willing to accept losses…

But I am not willing to accept failures.

There’s a difference.

If you are a fighter…

You are gonna lose some fights…

But what did you learn?

Did you learn how to avoid landing in the same position again?

As long as you apply the lessons you learn moving forward…

LOSING could be a great thing.

But FAILING is more of a personal decision.

Failure is when you quit.

Failure is when you DECIDE not to try again.

Failure is when you don’t look at why it was a loss for you, and you instead focus on why you didn’t win.

Most people blame it on external circumstances….

When 99.9% of the time, it’s them.

When you get punched in the face while working toward your goals...

Instead of quitting or blaming someone else…

Say this…

“Alright ... I lost.

What can I learn from it?

What did this teach me?

What did I do wrong?

What could I do better next time?”

When you see the “L”...

Remember that “L” does not stand for LOSS…

It stands for LESSON…

And that lesson, if applied correctly, will contribute to a new thought process…

That will help you win.
