If there is one piece of advice I could give you to make the most impact, this would have to be up there with the best. Intense realism. Seeing things as they are, not as you wished they were.
You can apply this to just about every area of life. Business, relationships, friendships. It's something that helps you make better decisions, responding to what is actually happening, not reacting to what you wished was happening.
Lets take relationships for one example. So many men out there react to things the way they wished they were. If they're out and about and making advances on a lady and she doesn't respond the way they would like them to, they become offended all because the lady isn't into them. I have seen so many men become desperate over it and continue to harass the poor thing all night.
So many men have trouble with break ups and divorce because they are reacting to the what they wished was happening in their minds, not what is actually happening. They cannot handle the fact it's over. Now I understand you need to have time to get over it. It's not easy, I've been there plenty of times but so many men let it drag on for months and even years, all because they have trouble seeing things as they are. They destroy themselves because of their own limitations. They go into depression because they have trouble actually understanding, years later, that it's over.
As hard as it is, you gotta find the lesson and make sure you never repeat it in the future.
You gotta move on. No matter how hard it is, you need to keep putting one foot in front of the other. No, you're right, it's not easy but it's on you to do it. The day you start to realize that you're running out of tomorrows is the day your mindset will change. Life is too short to waste on someone who doesn't actually care.
How about temporary defeat. So many people let shit drag on and on wasting time on reacting to things that have happened, wishing they were different. Wasted time is worse than wasted money. If you lose money, you can always make more money learning from failures but time is something you will never get back. I can remember getting product delivered and the print was in the wrong place. I spent thousands of dollars on product that can only be used as a cleaning rag. I couldn't donate it because it's bad for branding.
The worst thing I could've done is give up and get angry about it. It happened, I had to move on as quickly as possible and learn from the whole experience. Seeing things as they are allowed me to find the lesson and move on very quickly. It's not that it didn't hurt, That shit hits hard when it's your own time and money wasted. I just knew that the more time I spend dwelling on what I wished happened, the less time I have to do what I truly want to do in life. I had to move on ASAP!
Respond to what is actually happening and you will have less drama and more time to do the things you actually want to do in life.
Make shit happen, get shit done. What you seek is a game you can win.
