How bad do you want it? When it comes to success, you must ask yourself this question.
Success is never a matter of ability. It’s always a matter of motivation.
If you are willing to put in the hard work, you can be, do and have whatever you want in life. If you don’t try, you will never know how far you can go.
In the words of Ann Landers, “Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.”
Now is the time to get real with yourself. How bad do you want it?

How bad do you want success?
Success isn’t easy. If it was, everyone would be successful. However, the reality is that less than 1% of people achieve success. Paralyzed by fear, a lot of people get stuck in a downward spiral of overthinking, to the point where they take no action at all.
Psychologist Barry Schwartz coined the phrase “Paradox of Choice” to describe his consistent findings that, while increased choice allows us to achieve objectively better results, it also leads to greater anxiety, indecision, paralysis, and dissatisfaction. If you want results, you must take action. Nothing will work in your life unless you do.
Part of getting what you want in life is knowing what you must give up. It’s not, can you? Rather, it’s will you?
Will you invest in yourself?
How many sacrifices are you willing to make?
Will you trust the process?
If you aren’t willing to invest in yourself and make the down payments that are required for the betterment of your future, you’re not ready for success. I don’t care what your story is, what your challenges are, or what your current life circumstances are.
None of it defines who you are or what you are capable of achieving.
Some of the most successful people in this world started with nothing. They refused to give up on their dream because their mental strength was bigger than any obstacle. Instead, they stepped up, defied the odds, and dug their way out of rock bottom to create success, on their terms.
These people have paved the way for YOU. Let them be your source of inspiration along your personal journey towards success. If they did it, so can you. You can achieve anything that you set your mind to, but it starts and ends with believing that you can.
Visualize the life that you want. Close your eyes and imagine what would your dream lifestyle looks like. If you could get a taste of what this life would feel like, I guarantee that you would do whatever it took in order to manifest your dreams. I can’t give you this, but I can encourage you to never stop dreaming.
I’ve experienced many failures and struggles along my road to success. However, I wouldn’t change one thing about my story because it made me into the person who I am today. It’s important to realize that success is a process. It’s not what you get that matters. Rather, it’s who you become along the way. Success is yours for the taking.

The journey that you are going to embark on will be challenging. No matter how hard it is, don’t quit. When you fall, get back up again and keep moving forward. Be a positive role model for others and serve as an example of what it possible.
Let me ask you one more time… how bad do you want it?
