Some defeats are more glorious than some victories.All human beings are busy making plans for success. Everyone wants to succeed anyway. Whether it is in exams or crises. In a world where compliments and congratulations are limited to winners, that is the way it should be. But we must not forget that some failures should be respected more than victories, and some losers should be held together with us more than the winners.
Many defeats may not be the fault of the losers alone. Defeats due to irresponsibility are unacceptable. But in the face of great challenges, defeats due to unfamiliarity must be viewed with the respect they deserve. The joy and excitement of success do not last long. But the impact of the defeat will last until another victory. Many are defeated, it does not have to be because of incompetency.
Some will give up to see those who think they are more deserving than themselves win. In this world that teaches that victory is only by defeating others, are not those who defeat themselves and allow others to win, more victorious than those winners?
Kenyan athlete Abel Mudayi and Spanish athlete Ivan Fernandez participated in a long-distance running race. Abel became the first in front of the finishing line, but due to confusion, he stopped running there. Evan, from the second position, loudly asked several times to continue running. But due to understanding his language, Abel stayed there without running. When Ivan reached back of Abel, he pushed Abel over to the finishing line. Then a press correspondent asked him if he did not push Abel, he could win the race. The answer of Ivan is relevant here: "What good is the success that comes from the confusion of someone who is on the path to success?"
