When you want to do something big in life, like start a business or a new career, act like your life depends on being successful. Don’t think of your goal as something that would be “nice to have one day if I am lucky.” It has to become your life’s mission, and something you live or die by.
If you approach your goals with this level of seriousness, you can’t lose. The people who do great things in life do so without this deadly serious mentality. Because if you take this mentality, you can’t lose.
Attack what you want to do with everything you’ve got. Most people don’t understand what it is to really go for something.
