What is your bounce back game like? Like really, how do you react in times of failure, loss, or any of that other bad mess that can happen to you? The bounce back game must be strong and part of that is faith and belief in yourself. Understanding that no matter how the cards are dealt or how they play out, you will be good regardless. You have to believe that if you lost it all, you can get it all back, plus some. Remember the saying, “you ain’t a boss until you take a loss.” Well I do believe there is some truth to that.
For myself, I look at failure as lessons learned so I know that once the experienced scenarios come around again I should be able to handle and react differently so that the outcome is a bit different. There is this Jay Z line that I always go back to time and time again. “I will not lose for even in defeat there’s a valuable lesson learned so that evens it up for me.” And since then that is exactly how I have approached life. When things don’t turn out for your favor you can mope around about it or you can level up and do better. For me, the only option is to level up. Remember, if you lived through it then you have another chance.
This post is something short for those dealing with life’s lessons. That is what we will call them, not losses, not failures, but life’s lessons. Always know after a lesson, you are built for this shit!
