So she opened one. But the restaurant is a mess. The kitchen service is spotty. The food is bland. The wait staff is lazy. How does she not know where her money is spent nor where money is being wasted?
Those How Bad Do You Want It (Instrumental) - KRS-One - How Bad Do You Want It (Vinyl) like the idea of doing something will quit after failing once or twice. Oh well I tried. These famous people found success despite failure. He wanted to so bad. He first got hooked on Big Brother when he was It seemed like it was all a big secret.
When he finally turned 21, he submitted his application form along with a video. He got on the show right? It took him four long years to finally get on Big Brother. Four years of not giving up. Four years being obsessed with one goal. He took it very seriously. He was willing to do whatever it took. It was like a Hollywood movie. Like the keyboard player told Ken. Not just talking about it. Was Ken willing to start putting in hours of practice every day?
He realized it took more commitment than he was willing to put in. People email me all the time asking for advice on getting more readers, more retweets, more comments, etc.
What happens? In fact, their blog looks exactly the same. Average people day dream about what they want. If they try, they do so gently, like walking on a frozen pond. I had tried and failed. When I failed, I gave up. Years passed and hopelessness set it. Looking bad, I had zero commitment! I was afraid of failing again. That changed one night after another meaningless and stressful night at work I wrote more about it in my free ebook. Sign up below. From that moment, I could either slowly waste my boring life away, or do something about my life.
Whatever I did HAD to be better than how my life was. How bad did I want to achieve them? I was doing what average people would do, which is just thinking about it! I had to be honest with my lack of effort. It sucked. If I wanted it that bad, I needed to show it.
To encourage you to take a long look at yourself and think if you are really doing enough to achieve your dreams. Look at your actions. Take a hard look at yourself and be honest. Are you willing to spend four years like Dan Gheesling to realize your dream? Would you continue despite being rejected by 12 publishers? This is an awesome post, Benny. I especially like the story about Kenny wanting to play the keyboard them changing his mind when he saw what it actually took. Keep it up. Really stuck with me.
Keep up the good work as well! Thanks so much for reading it Dwayne! Great Post! Unless you are really ready to make the changes you want, it will not happen. Seems we all have examples of things we would like to be doing, but your right…. I struggle with this every day. This post hit the nail on the head for me… thanks for sharing it. Thanks Bruce! Hope it does give you that wakeup call you need to get going on your big goals.
Great post Benny. This will keep me motivated. Like me and my mentor use to say. What do you gain when you sleep? If you can reduce the time you do use to sleep. Top is your place.

Thank you for the really nice words Ralph! The check is being mailed right now. Great new website. Will have to talk to you about that next time on Skype! This is a great post. It is very inspirational. It happens with me all the time that I feel that I need something, but never try to get that thing at my will. I should really follow your tips. All those tips will be very valuable for me. I think if you believe, stay committed and have enough faith in yourself to get up after you have fallen, you can achieve great things.
So far I have fallen and got of course but I am willing to dust myself off and try again. Thanks for the post Benny. Very well said Aaron about believing. So no matter what people tell you, you have to believe in yourself first. Thanks for sharing Aaron! This is absolutely accurate. There are areas where I sacrifice like crazy and go for it, and other areas that could use more attention if they are ever going to take off. Hi Julie! Great to see you again.
Thanks for sharing your experience. I like to think we get what we put in. Thanks for such a motivating post. My plan is to train my mother to do it. Hi Cathy! That way you have more time on the more important things and you can get more How Bad Do You Want It (Instrumental) - KRS-One - How Bad Do You Want It (Vinyl).
Hope your plan works out well! It sounds like you want it really bad. One of the most exciting parts of How Bad Do You Want It (Instrumental) - KRS-One - How Bad Do You Want It (Vinyl), in my entrepreneurial opinion, is being able to network with other like-minded folk who are hungry. Thanks for helping to keep me hungry! I agree! I just hope people downloaded it! I agree one of the great things about blogging is networking with people who are hungry.
It reminds me that I need to keep up. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment here. Stay hungry! Noch Noch. Yes yes yes! I have more important goals. Glad you understand how important that is! Benny, The piano story struck a nerve. So i suppose it could be a blessing in disguise? Not sure if others have this same problem. Do you find you work too hard and need to step back to spend time with loved ones and doing fun things that make life worth living?
I definitely find that I do need to step back and have some fun with loved ones. If I had kids, I definitely would be spending more time away from the computer. Seeing kids grow up is something that only happens once. But at the same time, would you rather work hard for 4 years and then enjoy the next 40? Or take it easy at work for 40 years, and enjoy the next 4? But there does need to be a balance of course. But someone could still have time for the kids and work, but have to make sacrifices somewhere else.
Like waking up How Bad Do You Want It (Instrumental) - KRS-One - How Bad Do You Want It (Vinyl), sleeping later, not going out as much with friend, etc. Very true. We have dealt with a string of setbacks and failures over the past 12 months, and the process has been very scary but also very enlightening. Luckily to say our persistence has paid off and we are now moving to Dubai! Wow moving to Dubai! Thanks for reinforcing that persistence does pay off. Just went to check out your blog and love your design!
So creative. Thanks for your first comment here Holly! We plan to live in Dubai for about 5 years to have another child there and raise our family while the kiddies are young Dubai is safe and extremely child-friendly — lots of space and cheap help. London might not have the best weather or very much space, but it has the most opportunity in all of Europe for us salaries and benefits are good and property will pretty much always be a safe investment there.
Thanks Holly for your reply. I just like hearing what exciting things other people are doing. Sounds like a fun adventure and will be filled with great memories for your whole family. The problem is that they dabble, How Bad Do You Want It (Instrumental) - KRS-One - How Bad Do You Want It (Vinyl). Thanks so much Srini. Too much dabbling is not good. Too often people try to How Bad Do You Want It (Instrumental) - KRS-One - How Bad Do You Want It (Vinyl) too much and get nothing done.
Your want to, has to be enough to cause you to take action. Wow your dad had some great words of wisdom. Thanks for sharing that Carrie! Hi Benny, I know that many of us can relate of your very inspiring story, how I wish I can do it the same way. Life is a matter of fear but it depends on how you handle it, you are a model that posses an attitude that quitting is not the solution in attaining all the greatness….
Thanks Natalie. Fear only appears when we want to do something real bad. Those who can overcome their fears over and over get rewarded.
It is definitely true that a fine line separates those of us who only desire success and those who crave it. The latter will do whatever it takes, within reason of course, to achieve their goal. Forsaking sleep, relations, even food sometimes, in the undiluted pursuit of their goals. And usually, those are the people who are consistently successful.
We all are going to fall off the band-wagon of our lives. They waste their live energy, so they stay at their level. I believe we are masked as ordinary people desperately trying to always break free from that facade. It is with the habits and traits you mention that we can overcome such obstacles. I like your cliches from Texas! Great comment and full of great stuff. Thanks Rachel! This post had some real punch to it.
Even when I decided to take the break, I had plans for when I would start in again. It gets use recharged when we do go back to our work. Glad to hear you still were planning though. Thanks for sharing with us! I read your latest announcement and decided to check other articles to discover that I missed this article. Commitment is the difference between great and mediocre.
This is a fantastic post. Hi Benny! This is a great post, as always! Loyalty is the key to it all remember Get used to my face, we the winners of all By mi gente, yo I go low to say-ah Real like them Washington Heights Niggaz there say yeah! After you rap, will you stab my back? They livin' like that? Why should I make you popular? You know I'm the philosopha How bad do you want it?
How bad do you need it? If you see it, you can believe it, perceive it, retrieve it and flaunt it How bad do you want, doggone it, there's the track, if you want it You got to put your rhyme on it!
How bad do I want it? I'm ready to die like Big A serious man with blood in my eyes for this Success doesn't come overnight It's gonna be dark a while until I see light that's right! What is it? This is no game, why should I do it? How bad do you see it? How bad do you hear it? If you doubt, then you're out If you believe, you can achieve I got the city on lock, but I'm gonna hand you the Keys like Alicia You know my style, you know I'm the teacha Philosopha, minister, emcee, Hiphop's spiritual leader With the heater You comin' with me?
