The Thrill of Victory and the Agony of Defeat

“I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.”
Michael Jordan

I can remember hearing “The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat” hundreds of times over the years watching the Olympics. Defeat can be seen as agony. It can also be seen as a stepping stone. One step closer to victory. The ability to see obstacles as a possible part of the process, (not that you purposefully project that you will experience obstacles) the easier it will be to see the blessings. The good. The next right and perfect step. This keeps your creativity open and reception to new ideas.

Vibrant Living Tip– Next time you experience something that some may see as defeat, change you perception. Make a list of the possible good that can come out of this situation. List as many as you can in 15 minutes. Then at the end write “I am so happy and grateful now that I am one step closer to victory!” Take action based on the list.
