Get ONNIT!!

Get ONNIT!!

 

So you train hard, go to the competition and lose. You weren’t the fastest, you weren’t the strongest, whatever it was…and you lost. What was the point? Why go through the torture, the embarrassment, the negative feelings that come from falling short of a goal? Because the scars fade in time and the good thoughts stick around. Going to one tournament and losing doesn’t sting nearly as bad 10 years and a black belt later. Training and traveling for a competition only to underperform stings less when you win the next one, when you go to Regionals, when you succeed.

Failure teaches you. When out of a pile of failed attempts you rise out of it, goal in hand, the euphoria you feel makes it all worth it. After years of dieting and exercising I lost that weight, I got a six pack, I did my first RX workout, I finally like the way I look in the mirror. No matter the fumbles and failures you made along the way, success tends to rose-color the past.

Failure is empowering. After you’ve endure 10,000 attempts, failures, heartbreaks, and close calls and you’re still here? What’s left that could possibly keep you down? Failure helps you identify what in your life is and isn’t solid, what do and don’t need, what helps you and what hurts you. It would be hard to argue that identifying those things is good for us; the only problem then, is that we have to get comfortable with the price of knowledge. We can’t let the sting of failure, the cost of learning the lessons, stop us from daring to learn.

Perseverance is the name of the game. Quotes abound on the topic of trying again, never giving up, to just keep moving. Men and women full of wisdom who lived generations ago are telling you what they’ve learned in their time.

Fall down seven times, stand up eight.”

– Japanese Proverb

 If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again.”

– William E. Hickson

“Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”

– Harriet Beecher Stowe

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

-Theodore Roosevelt

If you never quit success is inevitable.

-Conrad
