In order to succeed in business and life, we have to know how to persevere. And we can only persevere if we understand that success--real success--doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time.
Everybody experiences struggle. Everybody. According to Andy, those who overcome adversity and succeed understand certain things. 1. Success takes time. You have to power through adversity and not skip from one business idea to the next. 2. Everybody has shitty days. Your feelings don’t matter. Successful people “do it anyway.” 3. Like Andy has said before, you must learn to see the good in the bad stuff that happens to you. Ben Newman calls it “reframing” - the power to see things from a different perspective. Andy, Vaughn, and Ben cover these points and more.
Why is it that some people experience terrible, evil things in their lives & they become monsters themselves...while other people go through just the same kind of suffering & sh*t & they are transformed into amazing, good people? I get it. It is hard to take the negatives of life & convert them into positives. It's hard to be wronged & still do the right thing. It's really hard to go through really bad things & become a force for good in the world. But it can be done. You just have to make the choice.
