Will and desire alone, do not ensure success. I have an intense desire to be a billionaire. I bet you do too. However, no matter how many lottery tickets I purchase and scratch, I don’t see it happening anytime soon. I can set goals, and plan to buy a ticket every week, but my chance of hitting a big jackpot remain basically unchanged. We need a path with better odds.
The good news is we have examples, role models, and breadcrumbs to follow. The bad news is, it requires work. You must be willing to do what others refuse to attempt. Don’t expect encouragement from friends or family, pats on the back, or high-fives and attaboys. No one will be there, as you toil in the darkness. There will be stages in the process you will hate. If you are lucky, you will find a trailblazer who validates your journey.
The desire to succeed must fuel your competitive nature, and sustain your drive, as you create your anchor and inch forward. One small step helps you prepare for the next one, and the one after that. It is grueling, thankless, and imperative. This is the path that prepares you for the lucky break and unlocks the door to your success.
Will you dare to find your path to success?
Keep on writing.
