Are you willing to do what is necessary to succeed?

Are you willing to take the first step alone? Are you willing to begin your journey by yourself?

Are you willing to start earlier and stay later? Are you willing to begin your day before anyone else? Are you willing to keep working after everyone else has stopped?

Are you willing to study your craft? Are you willing to keep learning, to keep searching for the distinctions that only the master can make? Is good enough not good enough?

Are you willing to ignore the voice in your head that tells you that what you are doing isn’t good enough? Are you willing to ignore the voices of the critics that will only point to your flaws and keep on?

Are you willing to keep working towards your goal when there is no shred of evidence that you are making progress? Are you willing to keep going when a rational person would have long ago given up?

Are you willing to make adjustments to what you are doing? Are you willing to be infinitely flexible in your approach, even when it means that you aren’t going to reach your goal the way that you hoped to?

Are you willing to ask? Are you willing to ask other people for help? Are you willing to pick up the phone?

Are you willing to believe? Are you willing to keep the faith through the dark times when what you are doing isn’t producing the results you want and when your actions are actually moving you away from your goals?

Anyone can do what is necessary to succeed. But very few will. Are you willing?
