A lot of people are enamored with the idea of success, but never move past the notion of it as just a dream. No matter what field you’re in or how you define ‘success’ in your life, it is virtually impossible to stay motivated without some definition of success by which you strive for. Without that striving, finding purpose in your life is often an exercise in futility.
How Badly Do You Really Want Success In Your Life?
The issue with most people and why success always remains a dream is because they think for some reason they can’t achieve it. Or perhaps without even knowing it, they’re putting success at a lower priority than the other things in their lives. While this is certainly fine (as your family and your values should often remain at the top of the list)…if you truly want to achieve success, you have to figure out how badly you want it. I stumbled across this video the other day and I think if you’re looking for motivation or inspiration, or simply want to know what it takes to be successful, this might be one of the most powerful videos you ever watch. I’ve favorited it and have watched it just about every morning I wake up to get me off to the right start…if you need a little kick in the butt to stay grinding as hard as you can or you want a simple reminder of how to handle the day ahead of you, I strongly recommend you give this a watch; hopefully you’ll like it as much as I do..I’d love to hear any comments you might have on it so please feel free to add your take in the comments box below.
When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful”
