Once upon a time in a land far far away, a man accomplished everything. He had all that he wanted, and the greatest thing was his life was easy. He never struggled to achieve anything that he desired. Not! If you believe that you’re one of those playing the lottery types looking to get rich quick or a Vegas sucker thinking you can beat the house.
So many drifters waste their time hoping and wishing for their big break instead of willing themselves to the life they want. I hear people say they are working on a dream but in the same breath speak of a B plan. I see people never willing to sacrifice comfort for a momentum of vision. Truth moment, success just doesn’t work like that. You see the road to success and comfort don’t always go hand and hand. The most successful people look at discomfort as no more than the character building necessary to prepare themselves for success.
When one focuses on their dream and purpose nothing can keep them from it. That’s right nothing. The difficulty is understood as part of the skin one must have in the game. Challenges are what make the victory so sweet and failures that they overcome a more compelling story.
I’ll leave you with these words from Napoleon Hill’s Outwitting The Devil. “Recognize that life is a cruel taskmaster and that either you master it or it masters you. There is no halfway or compromising point. Never accept from life anything you do not want. If that which you do not want is temporarily forced upon you, you can refuse, in your mind, to accept it and it will make way for the thing you do want”. These words are directly from the devil himself on how to beat him and become successful. What more do you need?
