What is defeat? What does it mean to be defeated? Is it losing and failing? Defeat is that doubt in your head, the demon that feeds in your fear, it tells you you’re not good enough, that you can’t do it, that it’s not possible. Succumbing to that demon, that thought, that… is defeat. So it’s just an idea that I fear.

When I’m scared of a challenge, defeat isn’t even a real thing, it’s just an illusion. It’s that monster inside my head, that keeps me where I am, who wants to keep me in my comfort zone, but victory never happens in that comfort zone, you have to get out . The pain in your body that’s the demon, orders you to give up, enough it says, no more. All I have is my spirit, and that’s my fuel to push myself beyond that limit of pain.
I must step out of my comfort zone. Uncomfortable is my new friend. I find my heart to fight with my mind. I will not be afraid, because I will never give up. Before I climb the Everest, I have to conquer the mountain inside my head. Before I can make something in me, I must kill that demon of doubt. I have to forget what failure means, before I can give victory a shot.
I have to defeat, defeat.
