You need to have the skin of a rhinoceros.
That was the advice given to me several years ago when I was first beginning to have big success in this industry.
Since, I’ve been forced to condition myself for all manner of calamities. That’s the point here… What I would like for you to get out of this post (and video) is how to plan for the worst, hope for the best. Don’t forget to read the take-aways below the video.
How To Prepare Yourself For Adversity In Your Business
Here are 3 big take-aways from the above video:
Be prepared to solve YOUR problems
The very nature of business is that you’re constantly solving problems. You go into business thinking you’re going in to provide a solutions to people’s problems, but you find out most of business is solving your own problems. You must become highly skilled at this and to approach it with a sense of optimism.
Prepare “worst case” scenario
My webmaster whom I’ve had a wonderful relationship for the last 8 years has taught me to go “worst case” scenario. Some may think this is a negative way to think. It’s not. It’s that you go into the situation with both eyes wide open. Hope for the best but plan for the worst.
Set up coping mechanisms in advance.
Rudi Giuliani’s father trained him to mentally (and physiologically) prepare for the worst so that when the worst comes he would be prepared. Life is about being prepped in advance. Preparedness is key. It’s a survival trait.
