1. Not every race (substitute your noun here) is a good one. Some you are just happy to have gotten through. The accomplishment is getting out there and moving. You got out there, you got in there, and that counts.

2. Not every season is a good one. Sometimes it’s not just one race or one run but it’s a whole string of races or runs that just stink. You can’t get it to come together like you’d like.In this particular race, a tiny dog beat me to the finish line! Remember, there are other seasons and there is a season for everything.

3. Cumulative miles matter. Sticking with it to accumulate a good base of miles or skills makes a difference in how you respond to challenges. Having a greater base and a broader background gives you a lot more tools in your toolkit.
