One loss doesn’t make you a loser.

One mistake doesn’t mean that you’re a mistake.

One failure doesn’t define you as a failure.

Sometimes we need a reminder of this.

We can become too harsh on ourselves.

We can become too self-conscious about what others think.

We can focus too much on the threat of failure, rather than the threat of doing nothing.

And in doing so, we become risk averse and struggle to progress as we should.

So lose and keep smiling.

Make mistakes and keep learning.

Fail more and progress more.
