Recently, I have just realized that our approach in handling failure, rejection , and stress should be the same way on how we accept lost in a game.
Let me share my experience to you to better elaborate my idea. Recently, I have just learned how to play mobile legend. I don’t want to deny the fact that I invested some time learning it and I really enjoyed the game. Then eventually, while facing successive losses, a thought came in my mind. I notice that most of the time, when I was playing it, the more I loose the higher my drive to excel and get a better score or ranking. Why didn’t I surrender immediately? Why did I keep on playing it? Why did I keep on repeating the same process over and over again to be an expert there? Probably, It was because of the idea of reward, challenge, and happiness.
Now, why did I say those things. In life, we surrender easily when we face failure. We get afraid in repeating the same process. We don’t see the idea of reward. We don’t see the learning. Unlike, game we keep on going and pushing ourselves. We should have the same mindset all the time when we have problems. Go and never get afraid, because at the end of the day, if you do it again and again, and you just feel the process and enjoy it, You will be an expert in what ever field you belong.
