5 Ways Winners Conquer Defeat

Do you ever feel like you’re in a race against something that does not want you to see the light of day?

We’ll just call this thing “defeat”, because evidently that’s what will happen if it gets to the finish line first, and you know it because you’ve been there. But it seems to get worse. Every time you go through another challenge, the circumstance is no doubt tougher than the last.

In the beginning, maybe you feared your own greatness; how amazing you can be and that kept you from advancing. But now that you’ve been through the ringer, there’s nothing that sounds sweeter. You welcome the chance to finally be free and to finally taste the victory that awaits you.

“Do the thing you fear, and continue to do so. This is quickest and surest way of all victory over fear”. – Dale Carnegie

It’s there. No matter how dark things get, your freedom is still there. It’s calling to you right now, and it is not an illusion. It’s not some mythical goddess in a distant ocean fog haunting you with something you can’t have. It’s very real, and it needs you now more than ever.

You are the missing puzzle piece to that life, and without you, we will all miss out on what could have been.

You have to conquer defeat! So here are 5 ways to do it:

 

1. Drown out the noise

I’m talking about the garbage you see on the news, TV shows, the commercials, and the tabloids that are currently flooding your mind with useless and debilitating information. It’s doing nothing but harming your efforts and slowing your progress.

If you are sitting down watching TV, maybe nothing else excites you and so you live vicariously through other characters that are living their dreams. Shut off the TV, and go live your dream, not theirs.

 

2. Affirm how great you are

Especially if you’ve been watching the news and have been filled with a ridiculous amount of negativity, you need to bounce back and never stop affirming to yourself how awesome and amazing you really are. Write down all the positive attributes about yourself, including the kind of person you’re stepping to.

The perfect you! Make sure you read this to yourself every day. Perhaps when you wake up or when you go to bed. Just convince yourself of this truth, because it is true. You are every great thing you know you are and want to become.

 

3. Live with a sense of urgency

Again, this year has flown by! Another year is almost gone and then next year will do the same thing. This kind of puts the pressure on me to not miss out on my freedoms, to not miss out on this world, and to not miss out on my dreams.

Your dreams are valuable, and if you don’t live them; if you don’t maximize your chance to live your dreams you’ve wasted a great opportunity. Live each day as though you’re on a timeline to reach your freedoms because you are. Time will not wait for you. Don’t waste another moment.

 

4. Flood your mind with good, positive and uplifting information

This needs to be an intentional act in your life. Obviously you know this, or you wouldn’t be reading this article right now and spending time on websites like this. It will propel you and give you the juice you need to succeed much faster.

It will make you an expert in your field much faster, it will make you feel good, and you will live a much happier life because of all the good stuff you have filled your mind with. You need all that happiness and wisdom. It is fuel to get you to the next level and it’s the kind of fuel that just keeps making you better.

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn

5. Surround yourself with winners

People who are driven and like-minded like you, the coaches who want to help you get there, and the people who are already succeeding at a level you want to be at, are all part of that world of winners that you need to keep in your life.

It makes you much better because you start to take on their habits by nature. People pick up each other’s ways. If you hang around thugs, you’ll probably do thuggish things. If you hang around five millionaires, I’ve heard that you’ll probably soon become the sixth.

 

Thank you for reading my article! Tell me, how do you conquer defeat?

    Rachel, thank you. Appreciate the kind comments and for sharing the message. Defeat is constantly trying to beat us to the finish line. If we can just be intentional about applying these 5 principles defeat doesn’t stand a chance.

    Powerful article, very moving, and very informative. Defeat is a strong thing that can pull us into being deterrent. If that happens we loses motivation, we loses hope, sometimes even the will to live. That is why it’s important for us to fight and conquer defeat. A person may not be rich or popular but if he knows how to conquer defeat he will be a winner and will definitely be happy in life. Thank you Robert for this article. I will share this to my friends in order to spread inspiration.

“Ugh, I gotta get up,” I said to myself as another episode started within three seconds of the last one ending…without my permission. “Alright, I’m gonna go get some work done after this episode.” Of course, the episode ends on a cliffhanger that leaves me more motivated to find out what happens rather than go send emails. “Alright, when I figure out what happens, I’m gonna turn the TV off.” Geez, why am I still on the couch three hours later?

All my childhood, I studied hard and got good grades because I was motivated to escape my mother’s disappointment and wrath on failure. Others in my class were motivated by their desire to excel and get into a good college. Still, others were doing it to maintain their social status and to be recognized as excellent students. The word “motivation” holds a different meaning for different people, as what motivates you may not be sufficient for me and vice versa.  (more…)

Motivation is something we all strive to have, but can also be one of those feelings that’s hard to keep. Whether we’re attempting to reach a new fitness goal or trying to stay motivated in our role at work, sometimes that motivation just isn’t there. You feel motivated for a while – you’ll listen to podcasts, read books, keep yourself accountable – but then it’s lost. You feel so much energy at the start, then feel yourself slowly losing that inspiration. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. (more…)
