  • All right, I know that sometimes entrepreneurs,

00:01

we are out there trying to change the world,

00:03

and we get stuck against roadblocks

00:04

and things that are hard.

00:05

There’s ups and there’s downs.

00:06

And, I think for most of us,

00:08

a lot of times we turn to quotes to get us excited.

00:10

And there are four quotes that I found this week

00:12

that meant a lot to me during times when I was struggling,

00:14

times when I didn’t wanna wake up in the morning,

00:15

or times when I wanted to go to the next level.

00:17

So I’m gonna share with you guys four of my favorite quotes

00:19

that hopefully will have as big a impact on you

00:21

as they had on me,

00:22

and I recommend watching these over and over again.

00:24

And tag someone down below who you know

00:25

is in the thick of it,

00:27

who needs some help,

00:28

needs that little push over the edge.

00:29

And I hope that these quotes will help you

00:31

as much as they help me.

00:31

Theodore Roosevelt said,

00:33

"The only man who never makes mistakes

00:34

is the man who never does anything."

00:36

This is such a cool quote,

00:37

and it reminded me of another one of his quotes.

00:39

It’s even longer, so I’m gonna read it.

00:40

It says,

00:41

"It’s not the critic who counts.

00:42

It’s not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles

00:44

or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

00:46

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena

00:49

whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood,

00:51

who strives valiantly, who errs,

00:52

who comes short again and again

00:54

because there’s no effort without error and shortcoming,

00:56

but who does actually strive to do the deeds,

00:58

who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions,

01:00

who spends himself in a worthy cause,

01:02

who at the best knows in the end

01:04

the triumph of high achievement,

01:05

and who at the worst, if he fails,

01:07

at least he fails while daring greatly,

01:09

so his place will never be with those cold and timid souls

01:11

who knew neither victory nor defeat."

01:13

So many of you, I know this, I’ve gone through this as well.

01:16

You’re out there and you’re trying

01:17

and you’ve got people who want you to fail,

01:19

people you love who just want you to go back to normal life

01:21

and they’re hoping you, like they want you to fall flat

01:24

on your face.

01:25

They want you to live a normal life.

01:27

And as you’re trying to do things beyond yourself,

01:28

they honestly are like,

01:29

“I kinda hope they fail.”

01:31

Or the people who aren’t gonna like you.

01:33

There’s your haters who really do.

01:34

And I think when you understand this,

01:35

this is something that’s got me through so many times.

01:37

In fact, the last of it here, where it says,

01:40

"Then if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly,

01:42

so his place will never be with those cold and timid souls

01:45

who knew neither victory nor defeat."

01:46

Like for all of us, you guys, as entrepreneurs,

01:49

we’re going out there, we’re creating, we’re trying,

01:50

we’re challenging, we’re doing things,

01:51

we’re trying to create.

01:52

You are gonna fail over and over and over and over

01:54

and over again, and that’s okay

01:55

because you just need the one success.

01:58

If I could show you guys how many funnels flopped

01:59

before ClickFunnels’ funnel.

02:01

I mean we had six variations of the ClickFunnels funnel

02:03

before it took off.

02:05

But prior to that, the 100 plus, 120, 130 plus funnels

02:08

I did in a dozen different markets

02:09

ahead of time that didn’t work.

02:11

Then you guys would understand like, wow this is okay.

02:13

It’s not a bad thing to fail.

02:15

It’s a gift that we have to be able to fail,

02:17

to learn, to grow, and if we keep doing it,

02:19

we become who we need to be

02:20

to go serve the people we’ve been called to serve.

02:22

So there you go, Theodore Roosevelt.

02:23

This is Dan Gable.

02:24

He is our Michael Jordan.

02:25

One thing he said, he said,

02:26

"Gold medals aren’t really made of gold.

02:28

"They’re made of sweat, determination,

02:29

“and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.”

02:32

I share this one because I think a lot of times,

02:34

especially in our community, we’re looking

02:35

for the two comma club award, looking for two comma club x,

02:36

looking for all these kind of things.

02:37

And I think coming back to this,

02:39

understanding like gold medals are not made of gold, right?

02:41

They’re made of all the stuff you have to put in to earn it.

02:44

So if you really want to get those things,

02:45

you want to gold medals, you want the records,

02:47

you want the prize, you want the money,

02:48

you want the whatever your driving force is.

02:51

You got to understand that, that’s what it’s made of

02:53

the blood, sweat, determination.

02:55

So thank you, Dan Gable, for being the man

02:57

and for sharing the quote for today.

02:58

Vince said "Practice does not make perfect.

03:00

“Only perfect practice makes perfect.”

03:03

Recently I did a podcast episode kind of ranting

03:05

on coaching client who was not doing things right,

03:08

and I kind of, I may have got that person a little offended,

03:11

and I think that some reasons it’s hard to be coached

03:13

'cause like you tell people what they need to know,

03:15

even if they don’t want to hear it, right?

03:16

In fact, recently I was coaching Myron Golden.

03:19

Myron is like one of the most coachable people

03:20

and he asked my advice, and I gave him my advice,

03:22

and it was completely different than what he thought.

03:23

I said “Sorry I know that’s not what you’re asking for.”

03:25

He’s like “No, that’s why I’m paying you.”

03:26

He’s like "If I knew what you were going to tell me,

03:28

“I wouldn’t have had to pay you.”

03:29

He’s like "I want your different advice,

03:30

“That’s what I’m paying you for.”

03:32

And I was wrestling, I used to have a coach who would

03:34

always harp on us like we’d be practicing a move

03:36

over and over again, he’d stop us he’s like

03:38

“You’re doing it wrong.” I’m like “I’m doing the move.”

03:39

He’s like “No, no, no.”

03:40

He’s like "Just 'cause you’re doing it, if you’re

03:42

"practicing it wrong, you’re going to, it’s worse

03:44

"than if you didn’t do it at all. 'Cause now you’re going to

03:46

"keep doing it wrong over and over and over and over again,

03:47

"and you’re going to practice the wrong thing,

03:49

“and you’re going to do it wrong.”

03:50

He’s like "If you’re not doing it, if you’re not practicing

03:52

“perfect, it doesn’t make any sense to even practice.”

03:54

And so I want you guys to think about this as you’re

03:56

being coached by people like don’t take it personal

03:58

and be like "Man, I’m so grateful this person coached me,

04:00

"'cause I could keep practicing the wrong thing,

04:02

"and become really really good at doing things wrong,

04:04

"or I could shift, I could adjust and practice the right

04:07

"thing and become perfect at it,

04:08

"and that way all the practice I’m doing

04:10

“actually helps me as opposed to making me worse.”

04:12

During a lot of times in my life where things have been down

04:14

and been hard and I’ve been struggling,

04:16

I turned to Churchill so many times,

04:18

and this is one of my favorite quotes talking about the war.

04:21

He said

04:22

"We have before us an ordeal of the most grevious kind.

04:24

"We have before us many many long months of

04:25

"struggling and suffering.

04:27

"You ask, what is our policy?

04:28

"I would say it is to wage war, by sea, by land, by air,

04:30

"with all of our might and with all of our strength

04:32

"that God has given us.

04:33

"That is our policy.

04:34

"You ask, what is our aim?

04:35

"I can answer in one word.

04:36

"Victory.

04:37

"Victory, at all costs.

04:38

"Victory, in spite of all terror.

04:39

“Victory, however long and hard the road may be.”

04:41

And I think for all of you guys who are out there,

04:43

who are trying to be successful.

04:46

You have before you an ordeal of the most grevious kind.

04:48

It’s not going to be easy.

04:49

You have many long months of struggle and suffering.

04:51

What is your aim?

04:53

Victory.

04:53

Victory, at all cost.

04:54

Victory, in spite of terror.

04:56

Victory, however long the hard the road may be.

04:57

I want you guys to remember that, 'cause sometimes

04:59

this road is long. And if I could rewind 15 years ago,

05:02

when I started this journey.

05:04

If I would’ve known it would’ve been this long and windy,

05:06

I probably wouldn’t have gone on it.

05:07

There were times, like I said,

05:08

when we went through, you know,

05:10

I had to fire a hundred people in a day.

05:11

There were times when I lost friends,

05:13

I lost family members that have worked here.

05:14

I, so much of the stress and the twirl in the

05:17

things he’s talking about.

05:19

But when you look at it, say look,

05:21

victory is what we’re going for.

05:22

However long or hard the road may be.

05:24

That’s the goal, that’s where we’re going.

05:26

It gives you the force that you need to keep moving forward.

05:30

So, Winston Churchhill,

05:31

again one of my favorite quotes of all time.

05:33

"Victory, however long and hard the road may be.

05:35

So those are four of my favorite quotes.
