Defeat generally is a huge blow to one’s sense of worth. After a defeat, most of us will have trouble to keep going with enthusiasm and energy.

If you set objectives you must accept the risk that you may fail to attain the desired outcome. When this happens, how do you cope with it makes the difference!

Business is a series of ups and downs. Some years may be bad , but they do not stay forever. But every entrepreneur knows that problems and challenges are just lessons waiting to be learned. The important thing is to have a never -say-die outlook and to refrain from using the losers language. Entrepreneurs who have the ability to bounce back after every failure usually make it to the top.
