The Unbreakable Mindset: The Successful Entrepreneur’s Guide to Bouncing Back from Defeat

Have you ever experienced defeat? Bone crushing failure? Devastating loss? I am sure you have. You are not alone. It’s not a matter of if you will fail, but when. Failure and defeat are words you need to get used to if you are ever going to be successful. However, if failing and overcoming is what makes success so exquisite, why do most people avoid failure in their pursuit of success? You’ve felt the pain before. It’s ugly. Some people avoid it at all cost, while some never seem to fully recover from it. Failure has a way of rendering most people helpless.

What makes successful people so incredibly resilient–able to keep coming back defeat after defeat, eventually rising above the rest–while others get stuck, unable to move on?

I have seen people rise to incredible heights right after major financial or personal loss, while, sadly, I have also seen people fall off 10-story buildings to their death in response to the same circumstances. I am happy to tell you there is life after failure. I am living proof of that. What follows is a journey from having it all, to losing it all, to making it all again.

Learn powerful strategies for bouncing back from defeat, even if it means starting over from scratch. Learn to control your mind by mastering your inner game so success can become an automatic conditioned response. Learn how some people are able to multiply the results of their efforts [i.e. your SUCCESS] not just two or three times, but exponentially. Learn to become successful by toughening up your mind against defeat, making you virtually immune to it. Learn to turn adversity into triumph, defeat into victory, and failure into success. Develop an unbreakable mindset by cultivating the practices of highly successful people–and create an extraordinary life.

A Time for Truth: Reigniting the Promise of America

In the Senate, I’ve tried to do two things: tell the truth, and do what I said I would do. We should expect that from every single elected official.

Washington D.C. desperately needs leaders who aren’t afraid to tell the truth. And Ted Cruz tells the truth—about political collusion, a corrupted legislative process, and the bureaucratic barriers to actually fixing the enormous challenges we face. Cruz’s truth-telling habit hasn’t made him popular in Washington. But it has earned him millions of supporters nationwide.

Support Ted Cruz for President Now

Since his election to the Senate in 2012, Ted Cruz has refused to go along with the established way of doing business in Washington. In A Time for Truth, the outspoken Texas Senator tells his story for the first time—the story of a Cuban immigrant’s son who made it to the Ivy League, to the Supreme Court bar, and eventually to the U.S. Senate. It’s a deeply personal journey that begins with Cruz’s father’s experience of brutality in a Cuban prison and ends with Cruz’s discovery that Washington has neither the courage nor the desire to do what is needed to preserve the freedom and opportunities that gave hope to his father and millions like him.

Cruz discusses his role in the 2000 recount, helping to elect a president he respects—and whom he would have to stand up to a few short years later when he served as the solicitor general of Texas. He provides a behind-the-scenes look at his remarkable grassroots campaign for the U.S. Senate. And he reveals the true story behind his twenty-one-hour Senate filibuster, where he gave the most famous bedtime reading of Green Eggs and Ham in history.

Pulling back the curtain on the backroom deals in Congress between Republicans, Democrats, and the lobbyists who keep them in office—instead of keeping them accountable—Cruz offers an inside look at what has gone so very wrong in our nation’s capital. But he also makes an optimistic case that by reestablishing the principles of our founders, the opportunities for our citizens, and our unique place in the world, we can reignite the promise of America for generations to come.

A Time for Truth is sharp, funny, and honest.

What Cruz reveals will win him few friends in Washington. Then again, that isn’t why he went there in the first place.

How to Ask for H.E.L.P.

The discussion for this week’s Maximizer Mastermind Group was, “How do you ask for help.” We all come to times in our lives and our business that we need help. For many of us, it’s just plain hard to ask for help.

When asking for help, start by thinking about what type of help you’re seeking:

  • Hurt – I’m hurt and need 911. I’m not looking for long term support, I just need someone to get me to the hospital so I can get patched up.
  • Education – I need to learn about something.
  • Labor – I have a project that needs to be completed and I need someone to do the work.
  • Passion – It’s been a hard week, and I’m exhausted. I need someone who can reignite the passion inside of me.
