You can’t win them all
Even the greatest athletes miss shots, get scored on, and lose games. Sometimes they’re off and other times they are outmatched. It doesn’t matter if they tried their best and gave it their all, and it doesn’t matter if they were Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Roger Federer, or Tiger Woods.
Nobody wins every single game during their entire career, and even the games you won the opponent will have scored on you as well.
The same is true for your own work and growth. There will be days when it feels as if you are in the zone the entire time. Then there will be others where despite being an Olympic level swimmer, a hurricane hits and upends you and the best you can do is figure out where you ended up after it’s all over.
Catch your breath, hone your strengths, and refine your weak areas as you get ready for the next game. Because as long as you’re still willing to play, game time will come again and you will have another chance to lead the scoreboard.
You can’t win them all, but you can keep working towards winning.
