"The superior man blames himself. The inferior man blames others." —Don Shula
Athletes rarely say they were "beaten" by their competition, as they believe they are always in control of the game. If you win, it's because you played your best. If you lose, it's because you didn't play your best and the other team took advantage of your off day. Athletes always look to themselves to achieve their successes and fix their failures—not to those around them.
