Defeat is a universal phenomenon that is a part of the world of competition. Even the world's best striker cannot win every single match. What matters, however, is what one takes from their defeat. A loser can be denied by the field they're playing on, and for a fighter, there is nothing worse than that despair.

Many individuals, however, do not allow this despair to sink in. They are afraid to acknowledge their mistakes and unconsciously make excuses, completely unaware of what they are doing. This is just the beginning of what is known as "dream doping".

People trick themselves into thinking that not giving up is the right answer in order to avoid feeling like their efforts have been a waste. Their goal used to be achieving their dream, but now, it has become the act of chasing after it.

It is important to note that dream doping has no place in the lives of individuals who seek to achieve their dreams. If one does not live their life to achieve their dream, it becomes pointless. Defeat is the crossroads for one's dream, and what is needed is the strength to fully realize one's powerlessness in that moment and the ability to feel the despair that comes with it.

Only when one has given up on the path to their dream can they see a new path that leads to their new potential. Those who continue to fight in spite of their despair are bestowed with the power to achieve their dream.

In conclusion, defeat is a crucial part of the journey towards achieving one's dream. It is at the crossroads of defeat that individuals must embrace their powerlessness and feel the despair that comes with it in order to move forward towards their new potential. So, to all the "losers", it is time to face your crossroads and embrace the power to achieve your dream.
