Everybody wants to be successful until they see what it takes.
Success looks truly amazing. How many times have you looked at another’s success and pined for similar?
Many people want to be successful, until they are face to face with the long hours, hard non paid work, extreme stress and personal repercussions of the road to success.
There are those rare individuals who achieve success through luck, but they are few and far between.
For the rest of us, we are left with only the option to continue status quo, or to leverage our best resources to accelerate into a success path of uncertain outcome.
Why then, do some pursue it with all they have?
Some are financially motivated. They see the life in the fast lane lifestyle and crave it.
For others, the motivation lies deeper in the journey to that success. The problem solving, personal motivation prerequisite, the continuous inertia that propels them from obscurity into a spotlight of their own choosing.
There is no single reason why one might be driven. In fact, the disparity of the motivational variables is so wide as to make a single prognostication about how or why, readily improbable, if not entirely impossible.
When we see someone who has succeeded in our particular vein of enthusiasm, it sparks something deep inside that says we must accelerate in this direction, lest we leave our best self in the rear view mirror.
The prospect of looking back at a later date and wondering if we might have accomplished all that we had hoped to achieve and knowing it is now too late is a perspective that galvanizes a majority of successful people. It is a thought that we might have been a contender. One who would have gone the distance and performed above par in order to achieve that unique distinction.
When these thoughts find their ultimate fuel, we are propelled into working towards something of veracity and vitality that will insure that we are not the ones wasting our idle time, but rather the ones who invested the present time, into our future successes.
It is an investment that must be craved for passionately, or our goal will never be reached.
