What are your dreams? Are you willing to do just about anything to make them happen?
Hypothetical question – If you were in a life or death situation, would you hesitate, procrastinate and allow fear to stop you from acting? Think, what would you do?
Now let’s change it up. What if your children or partner were trapped in a burning car after an accident, would you stop trying to rescue them if it was hard to open the door? Absurd right? Of course, you’d keep trying. You’d try another door, and then try to break a window. You’d try until your life too was in danger. But your fear or fatigue would not be the cause for not trying, and acting.
Are your dreams a life and death situation? If not, you are dying of mediocrity a little every day.
To realize the life of your dreams, you have to be willing to do whatever it takes especially when it is exhausting, scary and hard. Successful people mentally decide what their actions will be long before the pain begins. They have a no-excuses modus operandi and do what others won’t. In a twisted way, they enjoy the pain because they know success is on its way.
You’re not here on earth to be mediocre!
Your dreams will be your reality when you want them as badly as you want to save your loved ones from that burning car.
