“Winning is not always the barometer of getting better.” ~ Tiger Woods.
…because practice makes perfect, so don’t give up! (you do not have to be perfect either, just don’t give up).
The more you practice something, the better you get! You learn what to do, the effects, and what will happen next.
Keep on persevering, and keep going. Some momentum is better than none! You don’t need to win or be the best to be good. One day you will get there.
