Why won’t you quit? Yes, you! I mean, life is coming at you at one hundred miles per hour, but still you choose to stand. Rather than throw in the towel, you salute life with the proverbial middle finger. So, what could possibly be worth it? The pursuit of happiness and the avoidance of pain…is that it?
It is the deepest desire for something greater – success. That is what drives us to do the things we do. We all seek after success. Each of us, in one way or another, is trying to convert our skills and abilities into success (i.e., wealth). But why is it that only a small percentage of individuals actually become successful?
You see, while having a “no quitting” attitude is a great human quality, this quality by itself is not positively correlated with accumulating wealth. Most people unwittingly live out their shadow selves (i.e., the dark and less favorable side of the personality) their entire lives because it never occurs to them that becoming wealthy is possible. And if living in abundance never occurs to them, then they never take any of the steps necessary to make it a reality.
So, change your mindset and understand this about success:
Success is not easily attained nor quickly conquered. She is elusive and love being pursued. She will recognize you if you acknowledge her irresistible power. She will give of herself to the degree of your commitment to study her, pursue her, cherish her, and never let her go.
