Ive scored some surprising wins against those much greater than myself both in ability and experience, and surprised myself on lots of occasions with my performance. Even though some of those were never repeated (like the time I ALMOST got you, Sajora :p ) again, the experience gave me the confidence to continue to pick up my swords at every challenge. Thats how I learned, by fighting those unwinnable fights and learning from every time I fell.
