It should be no surprise to you that the price of success is hard work, and a lot of it. That’s a given. But the price of success is also being able to deal with your shortcomings in a positive manner and not beat yourself up over them.
No great accomplishment ever comes easy and nothing worthwhile ever comes without having to face defeat, or a loss, at some point or another. Just take a close look into the lives of any top performer in your field and you will see the truth…
“The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.” Vince Lombardi
So facing defeat doesn’t mean that you are a total failure and have not experienced success. As long as you have given 100% to every task each and every day you have indeed experienced success. Failing at something is really a valuable weapon in the battle to achieve your goals and live out your dreams. We learn from our failures and all greatness is built upon the rocks of defeat.
Failure teaches you valuable lessons and injects you with the wisdom and understanding to see where you went wrong and where, why and how you can correct your path. Experiencing failure is an opportunity to learn how to experience the victory that you are after.
The key is to always know that as long as you have given 100% to each and every day, you are a success. So become not only dedicated to achieving your goals and living out your dreams, but also to giving all that you can all of the time.
