Here are five words that can help you as an entrepreneur, as a person who’s encountering challenges on the planet Earth that are going to help you a lot.

00:00:11.610 –> 00:00:15.839
Hey, I’m Terry Brock it. I want to thank you for joining me today and I want to share something with you that I saw.

00:00:16.139 –> 00:00:26.760
In an article really profound that helps all of us, because we all have setbacks, you have things that disappoint you. You try something you really work your face off to try to get an accomplishment.

00:00:27.390 –> 00:00:35.310
And then it doesn’t happen and you just feel so despondent and discouraged. Oh, woe is me, whatever, am I going to do. I don’t know. You know the feeling, you know what I’m talking about.

00:00:35.550 –> 00:00:43.290
Well, there’s five important words you can remember that are going to help you. I want to share my screen with you here and let you see

00:00:43.530 –> 00:00:54.900
An article that I read just recently. Matter of fact, just today here five words Roger Federer gave the best entrepreneurial advice you will hear all year. And this was at Sunday’s Wimbledon.

00:00:55.260 –> 00:01:04.140
And there is and there he went through the classic and he was taking on Novak, the Vulcan the vocal Vic devote quick. You’ll have to excuse me for not knowing how to pronounce.

00:01:04.950 –> 00:01:14.370
But they had the epic five hour five set marathon. Ultimately, one of the tiebreaker. And so what was his response when they asked him, will you remember forever. This and he said, yet this

00:01:14.760 –> 00:01:21.930
I will try to forget those words are going to be important for you and me.

00:01:22.290 –> 00:01:32.490
Because you see, the key is you can’t hang on to, oh, gee, what did I do wrong and keep beating yourself up over something that went wrong or something that maybe you didn’t do anything wrong. But it just

00:01:32.760 –> 00:01:38.310
There was a better person. The guy was better. He beat you. She was better. She beach out of this particular competition.

00:01:38.760 –> 00:01:48.960
But always remember next time you’ve got more you forget this one, I would say, you can. Don’t forget everything about it. I would say you want to learn from that mistake, find out. Okay.

00:01:49.230 –> 00:02:01.050
What did I do wrong, what could I have done differently, what should I do and take some time to go over that remember was a few years ago that I had a particular disappointment. I tried to get a particular thing as an entrepreneur and

00:02:01.530 –> 00:02:04.860
Even though I really worked hard at it we held a client.

00:02:05.490 –> 00:02:12.900
Excuse me, the client just eventually said no, not going to do it and they didn’t want to go forward and I had to step back and think well what could I have done differently. But, you know,

00:02:13.320 –> 00:02:22.080
That was okay, because I learned from that. And I realized, Okay, I should have done this and excuse me I should have done that. I should have done this and this.

00:02:23.490 –> 00:02:25.800
Student I got a little bit of a cough going on there but

00:02:26.310 –> 00:02:35.910
Those kind of things are really important to make sure that you learn from it and hey realize we’re all human beings. Yeah. We make mistakes, things go wrong.
