Food for Thought - What is Victory?

What is victory?

Victory is when you survive something others thought you couldn't or wouldn't survive. Victory is when the outcome of an otherwise adverse situation causes you to grow and evolve in a way that is beneficial to you. Victory is when you come out the other side of a fire and realize you're still able to smile.

Many people think victory is some overwhelming triumph in which pain isn't inflicted or felt. If there's never any pain, then what exactly did a person reign victorious over? Victory is what happens on the other side of pain, turmoil and sleepless nights. In fact, what makes it so sweet is the agony that came before it.

Just food for thought!
