"when you want to succeed as much as you want to breathe
then you'll be successful...
most of you say you want to be successful but
you don't want it bad.
you just kind of want it.
you don't want it bad if you want to party.
you don't want it as much as you want to be cool.
most of you don't want success as much as you want sleep.
if you want to be successful, you've got to be willing to give up sleep...
if you go to sleep, you might miss the opportunity to be successful...
sleep is for those people who are broke.
i don't sleep, i have the opportunity to make a dream into a reality.
don't try to quit.
you're already in pain.
you're already hurting.
get a reward from it.
don't go to sleep until you succeed...
you will never be successful
until i don't have to give you a dime to do what you do...
you won't be successful until you say
'i don't need that money because i got it in here.'"
i've recently discovered stumbleupon, and it keeps giving me great links like this one. it has completely revolutionized my internet experience. i really liked this video because it makes you question your drive. success is a relative term. it doesn't mean the same thing to everyone. and it changes over time. i used to think i knew what i wanted, but if you had asked me 10 years ago, 5 years ago, 1 year ago - you'd get very different and sometimes opposing responses.
are success and happiness the same thing? i don't think so. and while i am not old, i am getting older. the last few years have allowed me to really understand myself - my habits and limitations. i am always asking, consciously and unconsciously, how much i am willing to sacrifice to get where i want to go.
