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. anyone who's parents out there, we have to let our kids fail. We can't tell them the lessons. They actually have to fail literally fall on their face sometimes, or have, something go wrong or not get chosen for the team or not make it into that school play. My daughter's name is Emma. She was a ballerina. She had enough times where she auditioned for the big part and didn't get it. She can handle rejection. She can handle. A breakup now. And I feel like that's part of our job as parents to make sure they know how to fail because life is, it's not all about just success. I like to say is the success doesn't last forever, but neither does failure. So you fail, you move on to the next thing. Yeah. In your book you spoke about, , the situation that you had when, uh, Jake, , messed up his arm. You didn't launch right into, let me tell you my story. Let me tell you how it's going to end. You let him sit there. in that lousy feeling. Yeah. I can remember he was on sitting on the back porch and he had blown out his elbow. He was going to have to have Tommy, John surgery, all the college rec recruiters had been looking at him and now they were going to look at other boys and he was just so sad yeah, isn't ready to hear. It's all going to be okay. And this is going to make you stronger. And, you're going to look back on this and like, no, he was, you know, 17 year old kid whose dreams had just been crushed. And I needed to just, I just sat there with him and said, this sucks. Like this is the worst. And like, let him just sit in it for a little while because he needed that. He, it takes a little time before you can move on and it's the stages of grief. So we go and I talk about that a lot when I speak from a stage , but there's the, denial, wait, this isn't really happening. I'm going to be okay. Anger. Why the hell has happened to me, I'm really mad, uh, bargaining. Oh, well maybe if I just get the surgery, I come back and then the coaches will come find me again. Like, , it's going to be okay. Then you bargain with yourself in your head. And then there's this depression piece when you realize, Oh, all of this stuff is me in my head and it's not working. And then you finally get to this magical piece of grief called acceptance. And whether this is an injury or something, or a loss of a loved one, or when you grief, you get to a piece of acceptance, which is this has happened. And I don't get to be the old me anymore, or I don't get to go back. And the acceptance of I'm going to be different in the future. I accept that this happened, then you can start making some good decisions moving your life forward, but you can't just jump to acceptance. I had to let him sit there a little bit, and kind of muddy through all of the other ones with him and just you're there for him. Yeah, they got to kind of figure it out because I think the adversity that we go through, like I've told my son, you know, this is the hardest thing that you've ever faced, but it's not the hardest thing that you'll ever face. It seems with great significance that you're at a max 100, but then you're going to look back at this as time goes on. Um, life is long, it's not short.
