How to Power Through Struggle

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.
