This is the sales life. I'm your host marsh B. And I created the sales life because I believe the number one skill that you need in your life to embrace uncertainty, handle the adversity and never settle again is the ability to sell, but you don't have to be in sales to learn how to sell. I'll take the skills that I've learned in the sales profession, and I'll show you how I've applied these to every area of my life and how you can too. Enjoy today's TSL moment and see how you can apply it to your life today. For more on the sales life. Go to marshbuice.com that's M a R S H B U I C E. Stay. My, my, my boy played at McNeese State in, in lake Charles, Louisiana. You were telling me about the, the, the single defeat that you had in college that you still think about to this day? And it was in, in 1995 to my Marshall thundering herd. When I was a student at Marshall university, go herd. I wanna ask you that was 25 years ago. Yeah. What did you take away from that defeat to marsh? That you still think about and put into practice to this day? Wow. Recovery. Um, The only time I made the front page of the paper was the day after that game. Every Sunday, dude, I would go get a newspaper. See, you know, those action shots that like VM where the photographers on the sideline, you're like he's pancake somebody. Yeah, it's a, yeah, exactly. So every, every Sunday, man, I, I would go get the paper. So that Sunday, after the game, after we lost, I was devastated. One, one went away from going to the finals. And I know if we would've went to the finals, we would've won. Of course, everybody. Go get a newspaper. I'm on the front page of the paper and I still have it somewhere around here. And I use it as a reminder, my head's in my hands, I'm crying and the biggest boldest print you can put across the front is it's over. Hmm. And, and that's a symbolism of many times. Who says it's over. And many times we, we read the headlines of what somebody else put for us and say it's over. Yep. And recovery was the biggest thing. Cause I remember Brian, when I went to the field hall house, the next day they'd moved on, the coaches had already gone on another season. I was done. There was no, there was no year coming back from me. And I remember that feeling that I had, that it was all just a transaction next. And so if that's the case, then what are you gonna do from here? This is it. You're not going pro. I tried out, but I didn't go pro I was all American. I was all Louisiana, but I, I didn't, I was too small. So what do you do from here? And so. The my mantra that has always been, I was always discounted. I was always too. I was always last to be chosen on the team. I was always too small. I always had to prove myself. I was always at a disadvantage, but I'm never out. I don't care. What's happened in my life. I'm never out. And it's never O over until I say it is. And it's been a hard road, man.
