I sense great fear in you Skywalker. You have hate. You have anger. But you don’t use it. – Count Dooku | Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith
Great businesses and people have been successful because of pain.
It’s one of the most underrated assets a man will ever have.
So if you have it, instead of feeling broken, lost, failure, miserable or helpless…
You have to celebrate it.
Because it’s a gift.
It’s one of the most precious gifts you will ever have for the rest of your life.
Let me give you an example…
The man who in invented Facebook suffered from tremendous pain.
Her ex left him because she thinks that Mark Zuckerberg cannot play nice with people (because he’s a nerd).
He also not being allowed to enter and join one of the most prestigious clubs in Harvard.
“The Porcellian Club”.
Well, …he was dumped, isolated, rejected and excommunicated.
So what did he do?
He invented Facebook.
One of the biggest Social Media Platform today.
In other words…he create the biggest club in the World.
Aldrich Killian (a disabled – ugly guy) in Iron Man 3 who was a raving fan of Tony Stark, asks Tony for a short chat regarding an idea proposal about biosynthesis.
It’s about synthesizing plant capabilities with the human body, and it was exceptional.
But what did Tony do?
He left him hanging on the rooftop chilling in subzero weather, while he party with the people who join him celebrate the new year, then enjoy having sex after.
Because of that painful experience.
Aldrich becomes CEO of A.I.M or the Advanced Idea Mechanics and becomes a multimillionaire.
He created the terrorist “The Mandarin” who wage terror and lure Tony to his plans.
Destroying his mansion, making him weak, miserable, and full of anxieties.
Well here’s the point…
If you’re in pain, don’t cry like a baby.
Turn your tears into treasured gold.
Let’s create some awesomeness.
