I?ll never make it. I?ll never reach my goals, I?ll always struggle with this or that.

Mt. Shasta, California

Boo hoo hoo.

So typical, so weak, so sad and disappointing.?

Look, there are people born today in places around this earth that are up against REAL difficulties, REAL challenges. Those people no matter how hard they work, no matter how smart they are, no matter how focused their time is, have virtually ZERO chance of success, ZERO chance of getting out from under the regime they are under, ZERO chance of success the way most of the world defines it.

YOU are NOT like them.?

Sure you may not have money, you may not have power, you may not have the best education or even the brightest mind, but if you?re living in the US or Europe, you have no excuses.

You actually can accomplish what you set your mind to if you?re willing to put in the effort. Many have done it before you with far less than you have today, no really, they have. I know I know, your situation is tough, you have a lot of excuses, but you know what, none of those excuses are actually all that good.

The world is full of stories of people like Guy Lalibert?, John Paul DeJoria, Ursula Burns, Howard Schultz, Li Ka-Shing, Leonardo Del Vecchio, Ingvar Kamprad, or Steve Jobs.

My guess is that you are better off right now today than every single one of those people were before they “made it.”

So what makes them different than you? What makes them special? Nothing really. Nothing except hard work, tenacity, perseverance, and some dumb luck.

They gave the same 24 hours in a day as you, the same 10 fingers and toes, the same human brain and ability to learn.

Look at the end of the day, what comes from your life will be a direct reflection of the choices you make each day, nothing more nothing less.

The question is, are you willing to put in what it takes to accomplish what you want to accomplish? If you are, then you better get off your but and get moving baby, cause time is short.

Inspiration from the Instagram post:


You can accomplish what you set your mind to, only if you’re willing to put in the effort.

So few will put in the time and effort and will fall far short.
