I'm thinking this morning that Lance Armstrong, after his stunning setback in yesterday's Tour de France, is now perfectly placed to teach us all a great deal more about persistence, in the face of almost certain failure. A cancer survivor and champion of the Tour, he has taught us about guts, determination, and winning against all odds. Now it's time for him to teach us how to persist also in defeat. Any thoughts?

Maybe it's much easier to face the defeats when we consider them just a part of the flow, a possibility to move in a new way, in a new direction. We don't stick to defeats that might occur a blind alley, we rather develop a new visibility, to see beyond them and continue flowing...:)))) Smiles!!!
