Way too many of you dwell on your losses and it’s holding you back. Look, I get it—losing hurts. But, unless that setback is a deathblow to your company or you’re going to lose one of the few things you care about most, you’ll just have to call it quits. That’s okay.
You know me—I’ve got nothing but tenacity. That’s just who I am. If I was in a fight to the death, I would die with the most effort you’ve ever seen. If I’m down 20-0 in a pickup game to 21, I’m looking at my other 4 teammates saying “Guys, I think we can straight-up run 22 points.” Nobody is more tenacious than me, yet I am willing to stop when I know something’s not working.
