#005 3 Business (and Life) Lessons to Conquer Your “Bad” Day

Stop getting offended by everything. It’s not personal, it’s business! Get laser focus on whatever it is you’re working on and always move forward getting over those fears.

Stop getting offended by everything. It’s not personal, it’s business! Get laser focus on whatever it is you’re working on and always move forward getting over those fears.

We’re going to cover three points that are important in business that I want to make sure you think about on your day to day running in business and how you can overcome them.

#1 Thick Skin

[00:00:24] Number one is thick skin or just being a little more ready for blows to happen where you have a higher tolerance for pain and you’re not offended by everyone’s opinion. Somebody can love your product and the next person can hate it. It’s just their opinion!

[00:01:28] So there’s this idea of whatever you see in somebody else or whatever is happening with somebody else, you need to turn the mirror around and look at yourself and heal yourself with that problem. What I have found in the situations where I’m feeling offended or need to have tougher skin, is there was something wrong with the way I presented it or there was something wrong with how I explained it. I needed to go into more or less detail. So when somebody is getting frustrated or overwhelmed and they say something rude, it’s not nice but I’m not going to get offended because I’m thinking, “Why are you overwhelmed? How can I fix this overwhelm?”

#2 Getting Laser Focus

[00:05:04] No shiny objects. By that I mean, if you’re going to start a podcast, start the freaking podcast! Don’t worry about X, Y, and Z. Start the podcast and get focused on that. Don’t be distracted by everything that is around you, getting thrown at you, or Facebook ads or what your favorite person is doing on social media. Stop getting distracted! Like when people try to distract you or take you off your focus area, I need you to say, “No, this is what I do. This is what I’m focusing on now.”

#3 Always Move Forward

[00:07:48] So you need to accept adversity. It’s okay to fail. Failure is a destination. Failing is a verb. It’s action and you can fail forward. You can continue failing until you get it right.

[00:08:59] Failing is part of the journey, it means that you’re trying, and that you’re working on something and you’re getting closer and closer to whatever it is. I often hear people say that they have this fear of failing. Do you know what fear stands for? False evidence appearing real. It’s false evidence that looks real. That’s what the fear is. The fear is that you could fail. You could be failing or you could become in your mind to failure and completely give up, but that’s not what is intended for your journey. You need to realize that failing is all part of it and it gets you one step closer.

Those are the lessons that I want you to overcome. Think about something that you want to focus with, the message that you want to share, not minding what others may say, and what you fear the most…can you beat it today?
