Of course not. Many people don't realize that winners don't always win. Yet, you may have heard the expression "Winners never quit." Sometimes it will take multiple failures before one can claim a victory. The odds may not be stacked in your favor and some level of irrational thinking may be required.
Your ultimate victory may take a lifetime. Resilience and persistence are what will carry you through to the finish line and your attitude will make all the difference. In the words of Henry Ford, "Whether you think you can, or you think you can't – you're right."
"Whether you think you can, or you think you can't – you're right." — Henry Ford
Life is replete with wins and losses. Winners don't always win. May you find triumph in the end.
