Today I want to share a video with you. I have posted this video in my online groups many times and have watched it probably ten times myself. It’s so freakin’ motivating that it’s worth the 5 minutes you will spend viewing it. The title is Success: How Bad Do You Want It. It’s a motivational speech superimposed over video of what appears to be a collegiate athlete training his ass off. It’s touching and it’s incredibly inspiring.
The video may appear to be about athletic training, financial success, or whatever… but it’s really about loving what you do and putting your absolute heart into it. Whether it be about your personal goals like jobs, your kids, a relationship, or a hobby… mo matter what it is, if you love it enough to lose sleep over it, then you have found your passion. If it keeps you awake at night and you can’t stop thinking about it… you will have success at it.
“When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful”
That line gives me chills every time.
If read nothing on my blog, I don’t care… just watch this video and tell me that it doesn’t motivate you to do more.
Success: How Bad Do you Want It
Don’t find something you just “kind of want”. Find what you really want. Find that thing that will make you forget the phone calls, the parties, and the things that work against your goals. Once you find that passion, you won’t have to work at it any longer.
I know one thing. After my better years have passed and I am looking back on what I did with my life… I want to be able to say that I WENT FOR IT. That in the hours alone, when there was no one there to pat my back, I fought for my goals. That I found my passion and lived it as much as my heart would allow.
