11. Serena Williams
She is undoubtedly one of the most inspiring sportswomen ever. The lady went on to win her 23rd Grand Slam singles title at the Australian Open while she was eight weeks into her pregnancy, at the age of 35.
Serena Williams says, “I don’t like to lose — at anything… Yet I’ve grown most not from victories, but setbacks. If winning is God’s reward, then losing is how he teaches us.”
The wisdom to steal from her words is that embrace your failures because every time you fail, a lot of lessons and learning comes out of it. If you choose to learn from the rough experiences of your life, success is sure to arrive.
