Here's the cold, hard truth in black and white: most people don't achieve the success they are looking for because they don't want it bad enough.
There is a whole smorgasbord of excuses to choose from for why we can't reach our dreams, but what it really comes down to most of the time is: not wanting it bad enough to do whatever it takes to get us where we want to be.
... bad enough to not quit?
... bad enough to keep going when the going gets tough?... really tough?
... bad enough to find a way around your obstacles?
... bad enough to give up your excuses and find a way?
... bad enough to overcome your fears, doubts, and insecurities?
... bad enough to go against the status quo in your circle of friends?
... bad enough to ignore the naysayers in your life (including yourself) and believe you can do it?
... bad enough to do what you don't want to do when you don't feel like doing it?
... bad enough to fight your inner self to persevere and keep going when you don't think you can?
... bad enough to decide it's worth the fight?
Count the cost... it's gonna take a lot... and it won't always be easy... but you can do it!
