I saw this quote the other day.
“I don’t ever lose. I either win or I learn.”
The quote is attributed to Conor McGregor, the UFC champion and world class trash talker. For a guy that can annihilate opponents like he does, this quote is pretty appropriate. But I was thinking it has deeper meaning, and, if you take the quote away from a pugilist altogether, it is quite inspiring.
There is an old anonymous quote that says “You only fail if you stop trying.” I like it, but McGregor’s quote has more punch, wouldn’t you say? Sorry for the pun…It was just hanging there, begging for it. Anyway, when I read both quotes, only one really burns inside.
What do you think? Do you have a similar quote that resonates more with you?
