Logic Of The Day: 13.03.2019.
The woman/man that became CEO wanted it more. The person with the 7-figure business wanted it more. The woman that won an Olympic Gold Medal wanted it more. You have to want your goals really, really, really bad.
uanting something so badly that you’re prepared to do anything to get there (ethically) is how you get the energy to overcome the rejection and failure it’s going to take to get reach that point.
I wanted to share my story and inspire people with it very badly. I thought of creating a Wordpress website, but I had no idea how to and had zero technical skill. My knowledge of how to market that website was also zero. I tried creating a Facebook Page and to date, it still has less than 3000 followers which means I fall short by a lot in terms of my target to inspire millions of people.
I tried using Twitter and reaching people that way. I was never able to get any real engagement. I’d tweet Elon Musk. I’d message Tony Robbins. I’d write the best tweet humanly possible. It all led nowhere. I tried using a blogging platform called Medium. I was able to build a small following, but most people in my area of the world don’t use it. I still came up short of my goal.
Then, I tried writing on a blog that already had lots of viewers called Addicted2Success and began posting on LinkedIn daily. Everything changed. I wanted to inspire people so badly that I kept trying until I found a platform that worked for what I had to say. Wanting it badly enough was what helped me keep going from 2014 until now. It didn’t stop there, though.
When my career took a turn down a black hole, my motivation died. Suddenly, writing on Addicted2Success and LinkedIn became hard. I didn’t want it as bad because the pain caused by my work life was too much. I let things slip temporarily for about 3 weeks. Engagement went to an all-time low.
It didn’t last long, though. Why? My thinking changed when I reminded myself how upset I would be if I didn’t achieve my goal. It meant far too much and in the back of my mind, I still wanted it badly. I went back over all the emails from people I’d helped and that spark came back. Deep down, I still wanted it badly. I still wanted to inspire millions of people. Wanting it bad was what helped me to revive my blogging career and continue helping millions of people.
Wanting it badly will define your career.
