Don’t see failures as a backward step. Never forget the bad experiences in your life. There is so much learning you can derive from them – you need to dig deep and reflect on that experience. Setbacks are temporary. You are already on the path of learning and discovery.
“I really think a champion is defined not by their wins but by how they can recover when they fall… I don’t like to lose at anything… yet I’ve grown most not from victories, but setbacks. If winning is God’s reward, then losing is how he teaches us.” – Serena Williams, Grand Slam tennis player
