Wanting is Not Enough.

By Arel Moodie

Many people want to be successful. They want to be in shape. They want to be rich. They want to achieve some goal.
Wanting is not enough.
I hear people say, "but I don't want to be broke.  I don't want to be overweight. I don't want to be a failure."
Again. Wanting is not enough. It's never enough. NEVER.
You have to be willing to fight and work for your goals. To sacrifice the smallest good for the larger benefit. You have to take action. Not in your head in the real world. Stop BSing yourself about how hard you think you are trying. It's not enough. Work harder.
You know how you know if you REALLY want something? If you are willing to work for it.
Want to be in shape? Don't take some magic pill or buy into some fad. Eat more veggies. Eat less fried food and go work out. That will never go out of style. And it will always work.
You want to be successful? Put in the hours per day of work it takes to get there. If more than two days go by and you have not put in consistent work toward your goals. You will NEVER achieve them.
Success doesn't come from wanting. It comes from doing (and not quitting).
There's a quote I love that says "Everyone wants to be a beast until it comes time to do what beasts do."
Wanting is never enough.
Stop letting time pass you by. Get up. Show up. And never give up.
Stay tuned and stay awesome!
