You don't have to love the Dallas Mavericks to agree that their owner, Mark Cuban, has been pretty successful. And whether you're running a business, counseling at a high school, raising a teenager or just trying to get through the SAT and AP Chem, it's nice to know that even the most successful people have those kinds of days every now and then.
From Cuban's blog:
Everyone gets down…the key is how soon you get back up. I can’t count how many times I have gotten up in the morning dreading the day. I wasn't motivated, I was tired. I just wanted to crawl back in bed. Other times, I had lost a deal, we had lost a game, something wasn’t working. I just wanted to crawl under a rock and disappear. EVERYONE goes through those moments. The key is how you fight through them. Knowing that everyone has those days, the people who truly will be successful are those that fight through the quickest and come back stronger and smarter."
