No stories on this one, thus, I’ll cut straight to the chase on this one.
Here’s what my mobile dictionary says about defeat ; “The act or instance of being defeated, of being overcome or vanquished; a loss“.
In the real sense, nobody wants to lose. Nobody wants to be left behind. Everyone wants to win.
There’s a lot of theories about defeat or losses. Some claim losing is good ; someone like Gary Vee.
Some avoid it while some don’t even believe it exists.
Regardless of what you believe, defeat is way beyond what we mentally believe it is.
Defeat goes beyond losing a deal or football match. It obviously is beyond getting rejected.
While we get stuck labeling circumstances that don’t favor us as defeat, that’s not the actual defeat.
Actual defeat lies in the little things. Defeat lies in little habits we don’t even count.
A good example of defeat (That most people never pay attention to) happens when you always fail to honor your words.
The truth is ; success and defeat lies in the strings of your habits.
Do you procrastinate? Do you actually do what you say you’re going to do ? Are you a punctual person? Do you give up at every roadblock?
Do you do the right thing when no one is watching?
Are you loyal to yourself much less your friends? Are you afraid of making tough decisions? Do you rise when the alarm clock rings?
Do you treat people right? Do you even have a high positive image of yourself?
Are you willing to take risks?
Can you handle the truth or you just want the pleasant lies?
These little questions are what you should be asking yourself. Little things matter. Pay attention to detail. That’s how you win.
Oh, you already lost or got defeated? Here’s what to do in one line ;
Don’t quit. Keep pressing forward!
By the way, success and failure is hidden in your little daily routine.
A small leak can sink a ship. Pay very detailed attention to how you spend your days/time.
Merely looking at your daily routines/disciplines plus who you hang around with can tell a lot about your future.
At this point, I guess it’s time I hit the publish button but before that, remember ;
