Losing Is Not An Option!!!

I used to hear people say "You Win Some, You Lose Some" and I guess that was supposed to help you cope with when things don't quite work out.  I mean in some respects I guess I can see how that might apply, especially in sports or in competition events, but not in going after your goals and dreams.  If you are chasing something you are passionate about, while there may be some set backs, every step you continue to take in that direction is a win.   Speaking what you want is a win, learning how to get it, is a win, making a plan is a win, executing said plan is a win.  Set back happen, not to discourage or break you, but to strengthen you and groom you for where you are going.  I once had a teacher tell me that "every set back is a set up for a come back" and from the moment he told me that, that became my approach to life.  That it all works in my favor.  Never mind the doubters and those that think or say I can't, what that does is let me know who I need to cut loose.  Who's thinking is limited.  Never mind the time that it may take or what it may cost.  Look around you, everything that we see, eat, wear, go, and enjoy took someones time, money and 1st and foremost ambition, not just any ambition, but a fighting ambition, a never say die ambition, a losing is not an option ambition, that no matter what comes, as long as I am breathing and able, it will become a reality ambition.  If you make losing an option, then you give yourself an excuse to quit, to let yourself off the hook, when you should only hold yourself accountable.  Your vision is just that yours, and its for a reason.  How can you lose when you see something that is clearly for you?  Set back's may come, to set you up for come backs so that you can win your race.  Losing is not an option.
