We all want to be successful. But what does success truly mean for each of us, and how do we achieve it? Easy – how bad do you want it?
It is only recently that I have realised what true success means, and how to actually be successful at anything.
Now I’m sure there have been times in your life where you’ve had a sudden jolt of motivation, which got you to take massive action, for about 5 minutes… by which point the motivation had sapped out of you. Don’t worry, I’ve been there myself. You’re unsure of why this keeps happening; why you simply cannot seem to get things done, or why you can’t continue to pursue these goals. I am going to solve this problem for you right now. The answer to finding consistent motivation is finding your purpose. If you do not apply for that job, or approach that girl at the bar in front of your friends, or go to the gym, then your reason to take action simply isn’t good enough. You probably don’t even have one. How do you come up with a good reason? Simple – ask yourself what will happen if you continue not to take action. Imagine looking back on your life from your deathbed, having never had the career of your dreams, because you was too scared to go to the interview. Really try to feel the emotions of disgust and regret you would feel. You would be livid; kicking yourself (maybe even literally) for going through life merely as a sheep who was born, had a job they hated for the rest of their life, died, then worst of all, was forgotten.
