Why haven’t you reached amazing yet? I’ll tell you why…it’s because you don’t want it bad enough.

There are two types of people in this world, those who get things done, and those who wait to get things done, if at all.  Think about a time when you wanted something so bad, you went to extreme circumstances and made drastic lifestyle changes to get it. Whether it’s a car, a house, a vacation, whatever.  If you want it bad enough, you’re going to find a way!

That’s the motivation you need to drive you everyday as you pursue your goals!  Do not succumb to procrastination and laziness.  Do not be influenced by people who are distracting you from your mission and vision, and learn the power of “NO”. Sometimes you need to sacrifice having fun or spending money to get ahead.

Focus on yourself and you can achieve anything you want!Click To Tweet

I promise you, if you’re able to train yourself to be mentally strong, and have the discipline to focus on yourself, you can achieve anything you want.  Not everyone will understand your purpose, and you may lose some people along the way, but don’t let that deter you.  For all we know, this is your one chance to get it right, and your one opportunity to be great.  Why would you trade that for BS?

Seriously, think of all the people you’ve come across in this world.  Think of the ones who found huge success and those who are literally living a bum lifestyle. What’s the difference?  The success went to those who wanted it the most.

No excuses, you have the time...

The last point I want to stress is time!  Time is of the essence, and it’s your greatest resource. Money comes and goes, but time will never return.  You need to value your time and don’t ever let it go to waste.  Anyone who doesn’t respect or value their time, will not value your time.  Use your time wisely, invest in yourself and find ways to be productive.

Self-mastery is absolutely necessary. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People  is a great book to help get you started.

This is your time to shine. Your time to be amazing. Try it, I dare you…
