Defeat is a temporary glitch

Look upon temporary defeat as a signpost that says, “Stop, go this way instead.” One of the qualities of leaders is that they never use the words “failure” or “defeat”. Instead, they use words like “valuable learning experience” or “temporary glitch”.

The great football coach Vince Lombardi had the right spirit. After a game in which the Green Bay Packers were defeated, one of the reports asked Lombardi how he felt about losing. Lombardi replied, “We didn’t lose, we just ran out of time.”
