The greatest test of courage on earth is to bear defeat without losing heart.
Robert Green Ingersoll

  • Did you lose the game?
  • Did you get passed up for the promotion?
  • Did you receive another rejection letter?

courage-go-for-it-cubby-motivational-1291214536-jpgIf you were defeated in any category of life and stopped trying all together, you’ve failed the test of life.

If you fell off the horse, and didn’t get back on, you’ve lost heart.

You must keep trying, because that is what life is all about. Success doesn’t come to those who haven’t tried to succeed.  So study up – buck up and gather your courage, because you need to strengthen your heart for the greatest test of life.


  • If you won the game.
  • If you got the promotion.
  • If you received an acceptance letter…

Don’t stop studying!

The greatest test of life is a pop quiz that keeps popping up in life and you have to be ready for it. There will always be another game. There will always be another opportunity. There will always be another dream worth following.

So be courageous – bear defeat without losing heart – so you can proceed into life with all of the skills you need to pass the test!
