You are the cheese in my cheesecake. 3 00:00:23.300 --> 00:00:29.460 Thank you so much for being here. Zig zigler joins US ON SPEAKER'S CORNER, 4 00:00:30.579 --> 00:00:38.570 and Zig tells us remember that failure is an event, not a person. 5 00:00:39.530 --> 00:00:47.009 Mi Amigo, we all fail at points in life. Failure is what 6 00:00:47.329 --> 00:00:55.840 happens to you, but it isn't what you are. I failed and I'm 7 00:00:55.960 --> 00:01:03.790 a failure are two very different things. The more you define yourself as something, 8 00:01:04.790 --> 00:01:10.750 that's something becomes a part of who you are. It becomes how you 9 00:01:11.030 --> 00:01:17.510 think and how you feel, and that turns into what you do and what 10 00:01:17.790 --> 00:01:25.420 you become. We can sometimes forget that our role models and our teachers, 11 00:01:26.500 --> 00:01:33.209 well, they failed too. The thing is, they did not stop after 12 00:01:34.209 --> 00:01:41.969 they got back up, brushed themselves off and they kept going, focusing on 13 00:01:42.329 --> 00:01:47.760 where they wanted to go. There are two types of people, my friend, 14 00:01:48.799 --> 00:01:55.480 those who take failure personally and give up, and those who see it 15 00:01:55.560 --> 00:02:01.870 as a lesson and maybe a setback, but they know that it's only a 16 00:02:02.269 --> 00:02:13.430 temporary set back. Many people fear, quote, being a failure unquote, 17 00:02:14.629 --> 00:02:23.979 so they don't even attempt new challenges because they're already afraid and focusing on failure. 18 00:02:24.979 --> 00:02:31.289 And you know, what we focus on is where our energy goes. 19 00:02:32.250 --> 00:02:38.490 But that doesn't have to be US, my friend. We are the captains 20 00:02:38.569 --> 00:02:45.439 of our ship and we decide where we're going. All ships go through rough 21 00:02:45.639 --> 00:02:53.520 water and stormy seas. Failure is an opportunity to learn and row, and 22 00:02:53.680 --> 00:02:59.710 there is no better learning experience then failing. It lets you know where you 23 00:02:59.830 --> 00:03:05.789 need to improve and what you need to do better. Every failure that we 24 00:03:06.110 --> 00:03:15.580 overcome prepares us for then next obstacle. Each storm we sail through prepares us 25 00:03:15.219 --> 00:03:23.740 for then next storm and makes it more likely that we will survive that storm. 26 00:03:23.939 --> 00:03:30.770 To imagine the mistakes that you might have made if you didn't make these 27 00:03:31.009 --> 00:03:40.759 other mistakes early and learned those lessons. You are not a failure, my 28 00:03:40.960 --> 00:03:47.759 friend. You've just failed a couple times. You are not defined by failure 29 00:03:47.800 --> 00:03:58.990 unless you quit chasing your dream. Let's get out there and let's get to 30 00:03:59.349 --> 00:04:06.270 failing, because failing, my friend, leads to success car pay momentum. 31 00:04:08.030 --> 00:04:09.229 I'll talk to you tomorrow.
