It may not be more complex than this: You win some, and you lose some, and some get rained out. But you have to suit up for them all.
Winners shouldn’t gloat, losers shouldn’t whine. But we need to face the fact that “what is, is.” We ca’t lead our lives based on whatever we think “should have been.”
That’s a fact in business and in our own growth. Deal with the facts and reality and you’ll do better than those denying them.
