“You don’t really want it. You don’t want success. You want to a have a good old time. You want time to relax and chill. You want to party and just have loads of fun. But success, you don’t really want that. Because if you wanted success, you would understand that you must be relentless in your drive. If someone studied 3 hours for something, you’ll put in the whole day and you won’t just do it once you’ll do it over and over even when you don’t feel like it. You can’t be out worked. Some people will say there’s too much material to cover but you’ll say, I’ll go above and beyond everyone else and I’ll make time even if I sacrifice some gratification along the way. Success is often lonely and involves being focused so I understand if success isn’t for you. Some people only do work when they feel good and when there is no pressure. Successful people, the best at what they do don’t settle for a good year, they push the limit. They become specialists and rather than being good at everything, they put everything into the area they desire success in. You can’t be truly successful at many things because of the focus required. So if your parents spoiled you, if they gave you a great home in a great neighborhood and pushed you away from experiencing failure than maybe success is not for you. Most people are babied and spoiled, desiring everything but sacrificing nothing. You need to have a certain level of rage in your work ethic. Find an area you truly want to excel at and live as if you are never given anything but must always relentlessly earn it. Inspired by: Relentless, From Good to Great to Unstoppable.”
