Nothing worth doing comes without its share of challenges and disappointments. All-star players understand this more than most, but their perspective is keenly different. Negativity and challenge for some is often framed as opportunity for others. As an entrepreneur, your focus becomes critical for pushing through difficulty.

If Kobe misses a free throw with seconds left in the game, he has to let it go, mentally focus, and rise to the occasion, so he can hit the game-winning shot on his next possession. Being “always on”, in pursuit of accomplishment, leaves no room for lingering in regret. The opportunity is still in front of you. Go get it!
