Move On After A Defeat

This week’s focus: move on after a defeat

I awake this Monday knowing the San Francisco 49ers aren’t going to this year’s Super Bowl. My wife reminds me, “It’s just a game.” I’m not so sure I agree.

For those who’ve been playing football since they were in youth football, making it to a Super Bowl has to be the pinnacle of a football career. For the coaches, players and staff, what could be better? Winning a Super Bowl has to simply be off the charts.

The 49ers had a terrific season and were perhaps one play and an extra point away from this year’s Super Bowl. As the adage goes, “Close only counts in the game of horse shoes.”

We are taught to focus on what we want in life, not what we don’t want. It’s time for the 49ers to turn the page on this season, heal, reflect and, then, get ready for next season. That’s what the pros do. And, so should you.

Thought for the week:
