Better Yesterday Today



Quote of the day:

Second place is not a defeat. It is a stimulation to get better. It makes you even more determined.”
-Carlos Lopes




Life is a race.
Life is a game...
Winners and losers.

With defeat one shouldn't ever give up..
It's always difficult hearing the victory songs of others-whilst our own songs remain silent from our trembling lips.

Being first at all times takes dedication...and even with that it's never guaranteed.
We all wish to be first in all aspects of our daily lives.

No one goes about thinking "Oh I'd like to be second place in this or that"....

Thing is...society tends to dictate how our existence and confidence should be. People look up to the winner, looking past those forming a long line behind him-forgetting that second place, third, fourth....is not defeat...just a motivation to get better.

So... as you go about living your life daily, remember this....
You can't always win.
But you can always get better at things....

  15. "Winners and losers".

    yes i guess then no again. Life is about fulfillment and living for something bigger than self but then maybe that is just philosophy.

    God is bigger than society so i think God defines a whole lot of things many people think society defines

    He always holds the ace cards...

    Good thought provoking post, i thought for at least 6 mins because i had a response that made sense to me.

  20. Hello Blogoratti,

    I am waving @ you from Iowa, USA. Someone stopped by my blog via yours, so I am here "listening" to your readers. You have a nice spot and a very intersting crowd. I see Trybes is in the house... *waving* @ him.

    And thanks for including me on your blogroll.

    Btw, how did that come about? I am just a small fish in a big sea.

    As for the Blog Roll thing, you are welcome! I tend to add interesting and sometimes thought provoking blogs to my roll, i came across yours a while ago, and the rest is history...

    In the end we are all but small fishes in a big blue sea :)
    Cheers!

  22. Hmmm.. this reminds me of a quote too... "What makes successful mean isn't that they do not face defeat but they are not defeated"
    Insightful post.
