What you can learn from Maria Sharapova

This past weekend I watched an interview with Maria Sharapova, the tennis champion. The gal is incredible. She was at the top of her game and then had a major setback with a shoulder surgery. She had to fight like mad to reclaim her status as number one.
What can you learn from Maria Sharapova? Accept your losses. Sometimes you are going to be on top and the next moment you could have a major setback. Maria said that on her road to recovery she took the losses to become the best.

I had never thought of that concept- accept your setbacks because they make you stronger. The losses make you fight for your dream. They also teach you how to deal with roadblocks.

Welcome the losses and setbacks, because nothing can stop you from achieving your dream.

Accepting your losses is a huge idea. It goes right along with rolling with the punches. You have to recognize them and work with them if you're going to roll with them. Then use the momentum to roll back to where you want to be.

I think setbacks also teach us to be that much more appreciative once we do get back to where we were before.

The road we're on isn't always a smooth one... setbacks remind us of it.
