I Don’t Want to be Average – Motivational Monday
The capacity to strengthen and increase your hunger is the one common denominator amongst the most successful people. I believe that’s the single most important element that separates the quality of people’s lives. It’s not just the ability to have hunger, but to sustain it.
The super successful don’t stop once they hit their targets. They simply reset and go again. Anytime you stop reaching for massive success, the next thing, you start settling in, that’s when you start having problems.
The comfort zone is dangerous. When you’re comfortable, you are most dangerous. You should never feel comfortable. You should be happy, and dissatisfied. Most people are hungry to achieve a certain amount, make a certain amount of money, and then they get comfortable and relax, or they get a certain level of fitness and then they relax. But if you can find within yourself the part of you that you want more, you want more of yourself, you want to make a bigger difference, you want to do something more than there day is today and that you don’t get satisfied.
If anyone ever tells you, “Hey look, you know what? just be satisfied with what you’ve got.” Don’t believe them, get them away from you. Don’t believe them, get them away from you. You should never be satisfied with what you’ve got. Because the attempt to get more makes you into something better.
Only those who have given up on greatness, would settle for average. We often hear people say, “I just want to be comfortable.” Don’t let anybody tell you, “Hey man you know, you should just be happy with…” No.
That is very dangerous to consider the idea of comfort. Such comfort mentality is what sets entrepreneurs and businesses apart. It’s what makes people great, is saying, “I don’t want to be average.”
If you don’t grow, you’re dying. If you do not expand your business, expand your family, expand your life, if you don’t push to grow, you’re dying. And what you have will be taken. You should double your business. Triple it. I’m trying to tell you something, that its true, and it’s true for me and it’s true for you, you can get anything you want. Be obsessed over your future, be consumed by the possibilities. The ambitious should never apologize, for the only people that criticize them are the people that have given up. Get excited, be excited, stay excited, and never settle.
