I thought you said you wanted to be successful?”
He said, “I do”
“When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you will be successful”
If you’ve ever had an asthma attack before, you’re short of breath, you’re wheezing, the only thing you’re trying to do is get some air. You don’t care about a basketball game, you don’t care what’s on tv, you don’t care about anybody calling you, you don’t care about a party. The only thing you care about when you’re trying to breathe is to get some fresh air. That’s it. And when you get to the point, where all you want to be is successful as bad as you want to breathe, then you will be successful. Most of you say that you want to be successful, but you don’t want it bad, you just kinda want it. You don’t want it badder than you want to party, you don’t want it as much as you want to be cool. Most of you don’t want it as much as you want to sleep! Some of you lost sleep more than you lost success. If you’re willing to be successful you gotta be willing to give up some sleep.
