There’s Only ONE Question that Matters

How bad do you WANT it?

So, you want to lose some weight.  How bad do you want it?

So, you want to be a better dad.  How bad do you want it?

So, you want to make 6 figures.  How bad do you want it?

Do you remember a time in your life were you wanted something so bad, you would give anything for it?  You focused ALL of your energy, time, focus and effort on that thing.  Nothing could stop you. 

Brick walls.  Ha!  You ran through them!

No matter how successful you’ve been or your station in life, there have been moments in your life, were you rose to the occasion.  You were at your best.  Everything in the universe aligned to make that thing happen. 

We’ve all been there.  Some more than others.

If you were asked the question, how bad do you want it, you would give an emotionally charged response that resonated on every level

Your answer would flow from the spring of your essence or being.  There would be no thinking about it.  You couldn’t hold back the answer.

Everybody says they want it.  Very few people do.

Vince Lombardi committed his life to the pursuit of excellence.  He preached about habits, character and commitment.  How many people are truly committed to what they say they want?

If they were, there would be a lot more millionaires, with beach front houses, with 5% body fat driving Porsche’s down the road. 

The reality is very few people have the will power, the focus, the motivation, the character and the commitment to make it happen.

What would YOU be willing to do to make your dreams, your vision, your goals a reality?

  • Would you give up TV?
  • Would you give up drinking beer?
  • Would you give up pizza?
  • Would you give up your 1 hour lunch?
  • Would you come in early to work or stay late?
  • Would you skip the golf game with the guys to spend time with your family?
  • Would you risk everything?
  • Would you put yourself through pain?

As you evaluate your life.  As you set your goals.   As you start taking action.  As you are tested.  As you are challenged.

Ask yourself one simple question, how BAD do I want this?
