We all get knocked flat.
Our joy stolen from us by bright expectations fleeting into "failure".
Defeat is painful.
Defeat, like all other states of being, is just a mindset.
One is not defeated if he chooses to get back up, learn and keep striving for more.
To be better.
You can never be defeated if you arn't playing in the same game.
Play for something greater than a single moment.
An accolade or reward.
Play for a lifetime.
This man is never defeated.
"There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so"
Defeat is a state of mind.
