This probably marks my 280th speaking gig in Tokyo, Japan.
I’ve spoken in more than 22 countries by now and sharing stages with the biggest names in the industry.
Have you ever had those days where nothing goes your way and things that shouldn’t go wrong went terribly wrong?
Yup. This was one of those days.
I was told there will be 1,000 pax at this event. When I get there, the room only had less than 250 pax. I have less than 5 sales despite having spoken more than 280 times.
Instead of reacting, I chose to focus the lives and every single person that’s sitting on the seat that have taken time out of their day to come and listen to me by delivering massive value.
I’m sharing this with you because there could be things that you’ve done over and over again and occasionally you things don’t go your way.
Today, Michael Jordan is regarded as a legend in basketball but in his career…
… he has missed more than 9,000 shots.
…he’s lost almost 300 games.
… he’s been trusted to take 26 winning shots and missed.
“I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” – Michael Jordan
Remember, there are no tough days, only character building days.
