It’s not how you win, it’s how you fail that really counts

A person able to smile no matter what, who accepts unsuccessful situations with the same self-composure had he encountered succesful situations, shows Hashem that he has the ability to accept success, while leaving arrogance behind. That’s why Hashem often tests people with setbacks and disappointments; if they hold on to their emuna (that everything is from Hashem), they show that they are proper spiritual receptacles for the light of success.

These daily lifts are inspired by Jonny Chippeck and dedicated to his ‘refuah shleimah’. Get well soon Jonny!

Please step up to the plate and contribute your own small nugget of Torah by sending back to me at terence@speedquote.net. The more people we have contributing, the higher this daily lift will go. Keep them coming.
