Winners must have two things…

Winners must have two things, definite goals and a burning desire to achieve them.

What a great line this is, isn’t it? Because we are so busy, we often forget where we are going and what we are doing 🙂

Do you have a set of goals? Have you written them down? How often do you read them? Are taking any action towards them?

Of course, we all want to achieve our dreams, but how hard do you want it? It is the most important decision in our lives to live our dreams, but how many people are really committed? I meet a lot of people who have set out their goals and their dreams, but lack the burning desire. “Some day, we’ll work on it.” “Just in case something happens, we still have our backup plan. ” If you take a decision, which is to cut off any other possibility, to live your dreams, there is no time for sidetracks!

If you don’t get serious, you certainly won’t commit! If you are not committed, you’ll end up nowhere, maybe somewhere, but certainly not there where you want to be!

I am not sure who came up with this quote first. It’s on a poster somewhere, but it might also be Brad Burden and I also heard it from Chris Howard. Anyone knows the true source?

Enjoy every day,
