I was talking to an entrepreneur about a recent failure he had.
He was so upset and discouraged about it.
He tells me that it’s keeping him up at night.
People are often down on themselves for the outcome of their hard work.
This applies to athletes, salespeople, entrepreneurs or anyone for that matter.
But the reality is that your effort is the only thing you can control.
You can’t predict the future. You can’t predict who will show up or who won’t.
If you gave it your best, pat yourself on the back and get back on the horse.
You’re a renegade.
