How badly do you want to succeed with your business?

Last Update: March 24, 2014

Hi all,

I find this very informative -

By Eric Thomas - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRfoFGGyRvU

A young asks Google to help him succeed and get to the same level as he is. Google said if you want to be at the same level of success I am meet me tomorrow at the beach at 4.00a.m. The young man thought it was not a big deal and indeed got to the beach as agreed.

Google got in the water and asked the young man to come in too.The man said but I want to make money, Google said yes come in the water with me.The man though they were going to swim he got in the water. Google held the man’s head in the water and the man fought hard to get himself out. Before the man could pass out Google got him out of the water and asked how he felt when his head was held in the water.The man said all I wanted was to breath and nothing more.

Google said “If you want to succeed you must want it as much as you want to breathe then you will be successful”. You should not care about phone calls, parties or any other thing other than becoming successful.

Ouch

Hope that was useful

All but a very few people have the ability to do what successful people achieve. Highly successful people do not have a life, do not care about one, and when they do have to go to events or things which are not relevant for being a success...their mind is somewhere else. Like on becoming even more successful. A very high percentage of people which we consider normal do not have this inner drive that success requires. Statistics do not lie.
What is it 99% I forget now.
To me though, success is making it through just one more month here at Wealthy Affiliate.

I am trying to breath too, amid my flu snuffles which I "contracted" from staying up late and waking early in the morning, building content for my website. Haha....

Hey Guys, Let's not be extreme about success. Yes I want to success and I am doing my best. But I also want to love, to dance, to go to a show and watch basketball game. Like in all aspects of life, the drive for success should be in balance.

yep mostly for those that reach high degrees of success, there is no balance, and therefore the success they have is not success at all. But a wheel to grind until they die.

Your right, it takes commitment, even thru tough challenges. You have to keep pushing thru.

It sure is a tough lesson to learn, but if you don't want to succeed with your business more than anything else in this world, then it will be very easy to get distracted and loose you focus and goals.

I saw this video before and I though wow! this is harsh, but I do understand the point he was getting at. Sometimes you have to know what it feels like to get where you want to be.

This sounds frightening, but it is true. You must eat, sleep and visualize your goal every waking moment. Only then will you succeed. Great story I will definitely be repeating this. Thank you.
