A well-known football coach once said, “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.” This is the motto that many of the sport athletes we see on television and on the field live by. This motto can be a good motto or a bad motto to live by. I disagree with the statement “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.

So I can’t stress it enough how important it is not to give up when you fail the first...
