How badly do you want it?
The answer to this question will often determine whether you will get that thing you are wanting…
How badly do you want it? How much work are you willing to put into getting it? What are you willing to sacrifice to have it? Once you get it, are you willing to do what is necessary to keep it?
I know a lot of people who say they want a business but when confronted with the reality of making that dream come through, they spend more time on their excuses that execution.
I even hear people talk about wanting to be a relationship but they haven’t learned to compromise and communicate yet can’t understand why their lives are filled with chaos.
Let’s not even talk about having a relationship with God. I see so many tweets and Facebook posts with clever sayings and scriptures but I often wonder how bad do these people really want a relationship with God? Are they spending as much time reading and studying his word as they are posting it online?
Whatever you desire in life, it’s not enough to merely want it… you have to put some action, some work behind that desire. The work that you are willing to invest into your dreams and goals will ultimately determine your success. Most things in life worth having are worth working for and won’t come easy.
How bad do you want to achieve your goals? How badly do you want to have a relationship with Mr./Ms. Right? How crucial is it for you to have a relationship with God?
Do you want it enough to give up something else in your life? Do you want it enough to stand firm when tested? Do you want it bad enough to invest your most valuable resource – your time?
If you find that you are constantly falling short in achieving your goals… ask yourself, “how badly do I really want this?”
