If you are in business, sales, marketing or even in a majority of JOB type positions, I think you will be able to relate. My hope is this hits someone exactly when they needed it most!
Here are just a few RANTs you may have heard before:
There wasn’t enough capital raised for the company to fly. I’m burnt out. I’m too old. I’m too young. Someone stole my idea. Nobody wants to take a meeting. If we would have only done one thing different it would have worked. The technology isn’t good enough to launch. Our competition is one step ahead. The widget manufacturer screwed us over. The bank won’t lend to us. Our website isn’t good enough.
Screw the WHAT IFs, the COULD HAVEs & the SHOULD HAVEs.
Suck it up buttercup and do something. Do anything! If it fails, suck it up again, and go after whatever it is you are chasing even harder.
OK, so maybe the sucking on lemons analogy didn’t quite hit the mark, but watch this video below and the next time you feel you’ve been beat down think of this mouse and power on!!!
Failure is merely a 7 letter word you are going to have to get use to if you want the big wins.
