How bad do you want it?
How bad you want it transcends beyond 'talk', which is where the bulk of the people are eliminated. How bad you want it requires tangible actions.
To reiterate, the gap between talk and action is expansive.
How bad you want it is like a test. Shortly after you get started, you'll be introduced to your first barrier. Its the outcome's way of saying 'are you sure you want to pursue this?'. If you're tenacious enough to clear the first barrier, the outcome will have 3-4-5-6-10-20 more barriers to work though, around, over and under. All at different heights, depths, weights and magnitudes. Once you venture down the how bad you want it highway, the outcome must make sure you're serious. After all, ANYTHING great requires a great deal of work and there are not that many outcomes reached on a Global basis.
The outcome needs to know you're vested. Not just along for the up side, but truly vested. This is the outcomes way of differentiating you... from all the wannabes out there who are not willing to SACRIFICE anything to get to it. Those who want to join AFTER the trail has been blazed. Those who quit when the going gets tough and those who try to take the path of least resistance.
THE OUTCOME ISN'T COMING TO YOU - YOU MUST MAKE YOUR WAY TO THE OUTCOME. There are millions waiting for that free ride... that's not coming.
The outcome is all about RESULTS. Not would, could, should, maybe, kind of, sort of but did, finished, stats and done.
So the next time you think of something you would like to have, experience, or take part in ask yourself one question; how bad do you want it. Unless it's REALLY BAD, don't waste the outcomes time.
