We all have dreams and aspirations. We all have opportunities and setbacks. But the one thing that sets some people apart is their willingness to do whatever it takes to do what they dream of or want.
Without willingness to give it your all, to keep going, and to sacrifice, your dreams and aspirations will never evolve. They will only be dreams and aspirations in their simplest forms.
Willingness is a concept that we do not speak of often. Usually we are told or speak about “Just do it.”
But never are we asked -
1. “what are you willing to give up to make your dream happen?”
2. “What are you willing to do to keep going?”
3. “What are you willing to endure to reach it?”
And these questions are paramount in how we go about “just doing it.”
Because at the end of it all, if we do not determine the answer to these and are not willing to sacrifice and to keep going regardless of the obstacles, of what people say, and of life - we will be “just doing.”
We will be doing, reach a certain level, give up, and then realize “Damn, all this time vested. This was not for me.”
So before you go ahead and just do it, ask yourself these questions so that you know if this is the path to take or the dream to pursue.
Because time is one of the most precious, valuable assets we have. We don’t get it back. Use it wisely.
