Do you really want amazing success? How much? Although it may seem obvious, you must have solid determination to succeed.
Does this sound familiar? Many of us talk a good game. We are confident in expressing our desire to go after a goal. Yet, we fall back and fail to do what we must to achieve it.
Let’s admit that talk is cheap. Are we trying to impress others? Or are we trying to convince ourselves?
More important, do we even want success?
If You Really Want Amazing Success, What Others Think Doesn’t Matter
If you really want amazing success, what matters most isn’t what others think. Who cares if we have a lengthy or lofty list of goals we do or don’t achieve?
Most people are more concerned with what’s in their backyard than ours. While they may offer tepid or encouraging comments about our proposed or stated goals, they aren’t trying to achieve them. We are.
Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.”Og Mandingo
How Much Do You Really Want Amazing Success Today?
The only question we should ask ourselves is, “How much do you really want amazing success?” If the answer is that we want it with every fiber of our being, then the road ahead is clear. We must exert whatever effort, take as long as necessary, and persist despite any obstacles.
This has nothing to do with how complex, difficult, or impossible the goal seems. It has everything to do with the determination to succeed no matter what happens.
