What do you expect? What do you need? What do others want for you ? What do you think others expect of you?
None of the above. This is about what you WANT.
What You WANT!
It’s what keeps you up at night, the last thing you think of before you go to sleep. (Sorry dear, of course I think of you last). It’s what you wake up with in the morning. It’s what you think about in those moments when nothing else is pressing you.
If you don’t have that, you are in trouble. If the aching, nagging, need is not in you, you simply can not do what is necessary to succeed.
Note that I didn’t say ‘you can’t make any money’. Note that I didn’t say ‘you can’t get by in the world’. I said ‘if you don’t have a fire completely lit under your ass for something, you can’t succeed’.
Which is not to say your shouldn’t start if you don’t know what you WANT. Go ahead, start your business, learn the craft, do the deal. But sooner, rather than later you need to know what you want.
What It Is
For me, it’s really simple. I want to be able to ride my motorcycle when, where and how I want to. That includes keeping up with my business as I go.
This trip, this vacation, is a trial run for me. So far I have identified some things that I need, and need to do to keep up. It’s not written in stone, but I have been out long enough to know that what I want is attainable. The door is open, I just have to barge on through.
Pretty cool. I not only know what I want, but I know that it is entirely reachable. Now all that I need is some stuff and some more money.
It’s a great life, if I don’t weaken.
I’m just sayin’
