IRON MICHAEL’S MIND: COMING BACK FROM A LOSS

Life is all about how you respond to setbacks and obstacles in your life.  How you bounce back from losses and bad performances will determine how much you achieve.  Life is a journey and its all about success, not perfection.  Your favorite world leaders, icons and movers and shakers throughout history have responded to setbacks as learning experiences and not let themselves get discouraged.  In the face of adversity, down in the valley, where most would lose hope, they found a way to make it out of the fog and into the light.  So can you, but its all about how you come back from a loss!

IRON MICHAEL’S MIND: THE IMPORTANCE OF A MENTOR AND SELF EDUCATION

A few years ago, I met a man named Chris Patterson who is now my mentor and great friend.  My life has dramatically changed for the better since the first day we met.  Most of the content of this video including the importance of self education are principals he has instilled in me.  Find someone who is smarter than you, more motivated than you and works harder than you do and then try to emulate their every move.  That’s what I have done and I hope that one day I can make an impact like he has.
