“I want what all men want, I just want it more.”
How much do you really want it?
When people find out how much I work, how much I sacrifice for the success I’m striving for.
They always ask a question along the lines of “Why?” or “What do you want?”
I think of Achilles and what he wanted.
Why did Achilles go down in history as 1 of the most notorious warriors in all of history?
“I want what all men want, I just want it more”.
Words that could keep you up at night if thought deeply enough.
How bad do you want it?
Ask anyone if they would like to be a multi-millionaire
Every one of them would say “Yeah sure!”.
But the fact is, they don’t do anything that would actually lead to becoming one.
Simple… they don’t ACTUALLY want it that bad.
They don’t want it bad enough and they don’t believe they can do it. Very common.
So how bad do you want it?
Do you want it more than your spending another Friday night chillin with your homies?
Do you want it more than giving up your cushy life making 100k a year?
Do you want it more than going home at 6:00pm after putting your 9 hours of “work” in at the office when alls you really did was check email a few times and bitch about your manager who is “an idiot” with your co workers all dressed in the same old navy tan khakis.
No, the answer is… you don’t. Everything about your behavior says you don’t.
People do what they want to do. They don’t do what they really want to do.
Can’t blame them at all though. Fear is very real and very strong.
But you’ll definitely talk shit about the Ferrari you see whip by you every few weeks while you aggressively mumble to yourself “he’s lucky”.
At the end of the day, it comes down to how bad you want it.
If you want it bad enough, you’ll do what it takes. You’ll stop wasting time. You’ll start sacrificing leisure and spending time with “friends”. (who are hurting you more than you know anyway )
Want it more, if you want it…
Think about Achilles.
Until next time.
