Your thoughts?

A dear friend sent me this quote today:

You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, and how you can still come out of it.

— Maya Angelou

Your thoughts?  Have you encountered a defeat that tested your limits?  If so, what did you learn from the defeat?

    Well, defeat is a regular part of life if you’re trying to stretch yourself at all. It’s like my father in law says when we go skiing. If you’re not falling down, you’re not trying hard enough.
