Learn to Accept Defeat to Enjoy Winning

Learn to Accept Defeat to Enjoy Winning

Accepting defeat can be very difficult, but it’s very important to learn how to accept defeat. One of the best ways you learn how to accept defeat is by losing, and that’s okay. Part of the problem we have in our society now is many children are not allowed to lose. They’re always put on winning teams. They’re always put in situations where they will succeed. That isn’t necessarily the best thing. Losing makes the fact that you win every now and then seem far more enjoyable. It’s through that path that you get a great deal success.
