First a Disclaimer: Success Is Not One Size Fits All
Do you want to be successful? Do you want the big house? Do you want a lot of money? Do you want a career that you love? Do you want to spend time with your friends and loved ones? Do you want to have a big impact on people in the world? Success comes in many flavours and only you can define what success means to you, but if you have MAJOR life goals, goals that will force you to GROW into a bigger, better, badder version of yourself, then there is one trait you will NEED to have.
The idea for this blog post actually came to me after a long day when I came home feeling tired, lay down on my bed, and promptly began to be attacked by mosquitoes. A most irritating occurrence. I was literally SO ANNOYED that this mosquitoe could not give me 5 minutes to RELAX. Lololol. BUT, you know what, that mosquito (or maybe it was several of them) actually inspired me.
If You Want to Achieve BIG goals, You NEED this trait.
So in order to achieve your BIG LIFE GOALS, whatever they may be, there is one trait that you need to have. But instead of giving you the trait, I ` m going to ask you a question and see if you can guess the trait. I `m going to continue from my little anecdote above and ask you some questions. Have you ever had a really long day, or series of days, gotten home, been really annoyed and tired and frustrated and all you wanted to do was lie down in your bed and the minute you lay down in your bed these mosquitoes started to attack you incessantly? Have you ever thought to yourself: “Can these mosquitoes just leave me alone for 5 minutes?” Because I have many times. But the mosquitoes can teach us a very valuable lesson.
The thing about mosquitoes is that the reason why they are so incessant is that if they don’t get to bite you and drink your blood they will literally DIE. For you it is irritation, for them it is LIFE and DEATH. Imagine the level of intensity that they have about achieving their goal because they intrinsically know that if they are not successful they literally will not be able to survive.
Can You guess what the Trait is?
So my question to you is what is the trait that you think that I thought about in that moment about relating to those mosquitoes that I realize you need to have if you have to succeed in anything?
The trait is: RELENTLESSNESS.
If you want to achieve big goals in life you have to be relentless. You have to be relentlessly, doggedly, obsessed. Whatever it is that you want to achieve must be the thing that you think about morning noon and night. Whenever you open your eyes, every spare minute that your brain has it should be thinking about that specific goal. So anytime you need a reminder of how you need to be if you want to achieve something, just look at a mosquito. When they need your blood, they DO NOT STOP unless you kill them. Lololol.
If you want to be successful you need to be the same way. Everything on the living earth must understand that the only way for you to stop pursuing this goal is for you to be dead. Once you are in this state, everything will yield to you.
Now, there is one thing that comes before relentlessness. In order for you to unlock your relentlessness, you need to figure out the answer to THIS QUESTION. I’m going to share the question in my next blog post.
