          A couple different ones for different reasons....

          First of all the Nike Slogan even though the inspiration for the words are credited to a guy that was facing the Firing Squad....Just Do It!


          And there are many great quotes that have stuck with me....

          "Live for today and not tomorrow. Live for the now and what is here. Stop living for what maybe or what may never come. Live for the day already here. Never hold back and never lose a moment, because you never know when things will be gone . Life is taken as quick as it given. So each day is a gift and a blessing! Enjoy and make the most of each and every day"


          "Let today be the day you stop being haunted by the ghost of yesterday. Holding a grudge & harboring anger/resentment is poison to the soul. Get even with people...but not those who have hurt us, forget them, instead get even with those who have helped us."

      A little extreme I must say.

      And not really good advice for other people in here.

      There is always someone usually better and more successful than we are.

      It can be very beneficial to learn from their experience and listen to what they have to say.

      This is how many people have become very successful

    That you can learn something from setback, adversity, and failure that will make you more successful. As they say in NLP: "There's no such thing as failure, only feedback."

    Not only is this "mindset" helpful in business/being an Entrepreneur, you can also apply it to anything else that you're going through in your life.
