If You Really Wanted To Be Successful, You Would Be.

The truth is that if you really wanted to be successful, you would be.

Think about the things you really wanted in life the times -- where you been backed into a corner and desperate to be anywhere but where you are right now.

That experience was so gripping and real and raw, that it motivated you to take drastic action.

You made changes that you weren't willing to make before. You did things and went places and tried new behaviors that you weren't prepared to attempt before.

So when you're thinking about change and progress, success, better results, and getting to where you want to be you can't remove the human element -- the element of desire.

Do you really want what you say you want?

Or is what you say you want the thing that you think will get you closer to what you really want?

Are you fighting for what you want? Or are you just doing things that will make you money or make you happy so that eventually you'll have the time and resources to do what you really want?

There’s no formula that can help you get real about success. There is no silver bullet or magical process that can replace the raw and real energy of desperation.

When you're entirely consumed by a single purpose.

It's clear. And you know why you want it. And you have decided that you're willing to do whatever it takes.

If you really wanted to be successful, you already would be.

So maybe what's holding it back is a bit of clarity.

You knowing what you want. You being clear on what you want and why you want it.

Start there. Let it consume you. Then do it.
