There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so - William Shakespeare

When things are going, bad there’s going to be some good that’s going to come out of it. Project got cancelled. Good we can focus on another one. Didn’t get the new equipment. Good we can keep it simple. Didn’t get promoted. Good, more time to get better. Didn’t get funded. Good we own more of the company. Didn’t get the job I wanted. Good I can get more experienced and build a better resume. Got injured, sprained my ankle. Good I’m going to get a break from training. Unexpected problems. Good I have the opportunity to figure out a solution. That’s it.


Get up and reload

When things are going bad don’t get all bombed out. Don’t get startled. Don’t get frustrated. No. Just look at the issue and say good. Take that issue. Take that problem and make it something good. Bring that attitude. Go forward. If you can say the word good when things are going bad, guess what? It means you are still alive. It means you are still breathing. If you are still breathing, you still have some fight left in you. So, get up, dust off, reload, calibrate, reengaged and go on an attack. It’s about as good as it gets. 



Embrace your life. It’s pain. It’s sorrow. It’s adversity. You have to realize that there’s going to bad days, dark days but you have to embrace because that pain what makes you stronger. Success is not measured on the days when the sun shines. Success is measured on a dark, stormy, cloudy days and if you can’t absorb failure you will never meet success. Storm is when you show who you really are.


Rock bottom

One of the best things that can happen to anyone is hitting rock bottom. The reason why it’s so important is because it tells you that nothing comes easy. When you hit rock bottom you learn a lot about yourself. You have a great chance to find out what you are really made of. How you respond to it will tell a lot about yourself. Failure is what makes you strong.



Run. You should run because you shouldn’t live in darkness. If you keep on running you’re going to see that light. In the beginning, it’s going to look like a little circle. That’s when things start to work out a little bit. As you keep going forward that little circle just gets bigger and bigger. Don’t let it break you and keep on running.


Bounce back

If we don’t learn how to master the breaking point we may have many ventures but we won’t accrue massive success in any area. Because every time you will run to a breaking point you will give up and quit. You will back away and run. You will say this is too hard, this is too emotional, this is too stressful and you will back away. You cannot be a successful until you learn how to go through failures, run through obstacles and bounce back from rock bottom.



Where does discipline comes from? It comes from within. It’s an internal force. What you are looking for, what you are talking about, what you need is self-discipline. Self-discipline are the very term implies comes from the self, it comes from you. It comes when you make a decision to be discipline. When you make a decision to be better. When you make a decision to do more and to be more. Self-discipline comes when you decide that you are going to make a mark on the world and to make you better, stronger, smarter, faster, and healthier.



What’s even more important it will make you free. Every breath that we take is a gift. It’s a sacred gift. Every day we have, every sunrise, every thought, every smile and every laugh is a gift. I will treasure that gift of life. I will not let it waste. Not one second of it. I will cherish every moment of it. I will live it.
