A common trait I notice among great bloggers is that their energy is always forward-oriented. They ruminate on the last thing just long enough to learn from mistakes, and then they move on to the next conquest.
They absorb the wins and reflect the losses so as not to get bogged down in self-doubt.
They have failures, but they never let themselves be defined as a failure. They simply broaden their definition of what it means to win in order to accommodate a specific failure, and they extend their time horizon to achieve ultimate success.
Don’t let the trials define you. Just the triumphs.
