Chapter 10, Page 15, Book 20

You never lose.  You either win or learn.

October 15th - you always come out like a winner when you learn as you go

A mistake should be your teacher, not your attacker.  A mistake is a lesson, not a loss.  It is a temporary necessary detour , not a dead end.


Everyone wants to try and win all the time, but losing provides many opportunities to learn new things.  We become better by losing and making mistakes so that we can analyze ourselves and show up as a bigger and better version of ourselves

We should never let a loss fail to teach a lesson on how to be better.  When we fail, we need to pick ourselves up and move on.  There is no stopping until the finish line.  If we find ourselves lagging behind, then its time to pick up our boots and find a way to get there.  

Lessons in life are not always easy to take, but they do teach us something.  I was always told that its not whether you win or lose, its how we play the game.  Life is such a gift, its worth learning all the lessons we get thrown at us.  We can keep enthusiastic and we go through it Its all a matter of the choices we make, I for one choose to learn as I go.  Everyday is something new and wonderful and there is always a surprise or two coming our way .We’ll always come out winners !

You fall, you rise, you make mistake, you live and you learn.

Don’t take the lessons of failure for granted. Celebrate whatever level of successes you can.

Love this encouraging message! I may not have enjoyed this lesson in my early years, but realize there's still lots to learn .....and it's okay to forgive myself for the occasional mis-step.

Hey, I graduated for the school of hard knocks. LOL... I just like teasing like that. We need to learn from things we do wrong and then the things we do right, we should pass along to others. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

A mistake should be your teacher, not your attacker.
