Were you able to witness game 7 of GSW versus CAVS?
I am sure it was disappointing for the fans of GSW and a sweet victory for CAVS’ fans.
Looking at all the statistics, it was really a great disappointment for all fans of #dubnation, especially for the GSW as a team, who broke the record for most number of consecutive wins at NBA in this season.
Even though it is painful for the fans, I believe it is more painful for the players, coaches, and management team. Instead of us analyzing all the reasons why they should have won, why don’t we focus on what we can pick up from this experience?
So, what can we do if we experience defeat in life?
LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES
Nobody’s perfect. We all commit mistakes. We all fail. The good news is that we can use those mistakes and failures as stepping stones from doing better the next time around. Let’s not look at it as a hindrance. Instead, let’s allow these shortcomings to motivate us in doing the right things next time. We get better not because of our mistakes, but from learning from them.
YOU CAN WORK HARDER
In other words, ‘try and try until you succeed’. Never ever stop. Never ever give up! No retreat, no surrender. Never accept defeat as a dead end. Work and practice harder. If you need to double your working time, just go do it. No pain, no gain. Do something that you’ve never done before and do it now. It’s not how hard you lose, but how hard you bounce back.
THERE IS STILL HOPE
You may fail today, but it doesn’t mean that you will fail tomorrow. There is always a next time. If you lose today, you can still win tomorrow. Until there is an ounce of breath in you, don’t dare to stop. No one really fails in life. The only ones who probably do are people who stop and quit.
In closing, for us to win, we should be willing to lose.
The point right now is not just about learning how to celebrate success in life, but also how to celebrate losses; learn from it and move on to become stronger and better.
See you again next year, KING JAMES of Cleveland Cavaliers.
THINK. REFLECT. APPLY.
How do you handle defeat?
Do you learn from your mistakes?
How do you prepare for your next battle?
