3. Everyone endures struggles. If you want to be successful, be resilient in the face of setbacks.
“The difference between the real winners is how long they take to feel sorry for themselves. My winners feel it… but they come back up and say ‘hit me again.'” -Barbara Corcoran
“The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure.” -John Maxwell
