Accept The L and Overcome
Sometimes in life things happen. Some of those are out of your control, others are within, some are pushed upon your plate or used as a catalyst to make a move at your expense. If it’s the latter learn from what just happened and progress but in accepting the L, ensure you learn the lesson.
Some people misconstrue the L for a loss however it’s essentially a learn because without failure, you don’t tend to learn anything.
Fail forward, be fearless, observe, analyse and summerise the L afterwards so you don’t find yourself in the same predicament twice. Know who can play the game and who isn’t aware, the players who are aware of a code of conduct operate in a different way from the others who aren’t of the cloth. This creates some conflicts in operation as the codes you abide by are often ignored by those who aren’t aware and do not abide by them.
What you can’t control can’t consume you but you can control yourself so what you can control and influence doesn’t get out of control.
Think before you act, know your audience and whether they operate to the same codes of conduct. If they’re oblivious it means they won’t consider the interests of all stakeholders before choosing a narrative for their move.
Accept the L and overcome.
