Do you want what you want so much that you will get up in the lonely hours of the morning to work on it? Are you willing to stop hitting the snooze button on your life to have what you want?

Do you want it so badly that you will stay up late into the evening doing the work it takes to have what it is you want? Does your desire to get what you want keep you up at night?

Will you abandon the novelties and the distractions and invest your time and energy in moving towards what you really want instead? Are you willing to give it that kind of disciplined focus?

Are you willing to learn what you need to learn? Do you want it that bad enough to go back to square one and start over with a different knowledge base? Are you willing to unlearn?

Are you willing to scrap what you have always believed and try on new beliefs? Can you delete your self-limiting beliefs and replace them with an empowering set of beliefs that will support you getting what you really want?

Are you willing to ignore the cynics, the skeptics, and the critics who will do everything in the power to remind you that what you want isn’t worth fighting for, can’t be achieved, and even if it could be you wouldn’t be the one to achieve it?

Do you want what you want bad enough to do the things that make you uncomfortable? Are you willing to stretch yourself more than you have ever stretched yourself?

Are you prepared to fail visibly, embarrassingly, and gloriously and rise from the ashes to try again and again? Will you run through this cycle enough times to get what you want?

Are you really willing to pay the full price for what you want, whatever the price? Do you understand what that price is?

A single “no” answer to any of these questions means you don’t want it bad enough. Now how bad do you want it?
