Relentless People Get What They Want

relentless people dream goal

I’ve always wanted more out of life than the average person.  I’m relentless about pursuing what I’m called to do.

It shows in the profession I chose, the passions that I pursue, and the plans I have for the future.

My goal is to never stop getting better at what I do and to change as many lives as I can along the way.

I WILL change the financial lives of my followers for the better.


Relentless Pursuit of a Dream

Sometimes it feels like an uphill battle that never ends.  But I see results that tell me I’m on the right track and spur me on to the next small victory, then another until they start turning into big wins.

When will the really big wins start happening?

I don’t know.

Maybe sooner, when I launch my upcoming online course (update: it’s now available!).  Maybe later, after I’ve been at this for another couple of years.

But I do know this- if I am relentless in my pursuit of changing the lives of people and their finances, the big wins will come.

How do I know this? because I know a basic truth about winning.  That truth is that Relentless People Get What They Want.


“Relentless People Get What They Want”- 4 Keys to Becoming Relentless by @DrCabler


Little Effort Gets Little Results

How many of you have dreamt a great idea, started exercising, or quit a bad habit, pursued that goal, then let your efforts wane after a short time?

I know, I’ve done it too- dozens, maybe hundreds of times.

What kinds of results did I see from those efforts?  Little to none (as you would expect).

4 Requirements for Being Relentless

Why is it that so many things we start never amount to anything?  It’s because we don’t relentlessly pursue them.

What does it mean to relentlessly pursue a dream, an idea, a new habit, or a new life?

  • It means not giving up when things get stale or boring (they will at times, even if you’re passionate)
  • It’s also about facing the obstacles that inevitably get in the way in pursuit of something that will change your own life or change the world.  Change is not easy.
  • It means being patient, knowing that if you consistently do everything you can to be successful at your goal, your time will come.
  • Finally, it means pursuing the goal even if others don’t get it.  Some may think your goal is crazy, stupid, or not worth it.  But they’re not you.  They don’t want what you want.  Such relentless pursuit of a dream or goal makes people uncomfortable because it reveals a lack of relentlessness and passion in their own lives.  Get around other people in relentless pursuit of something and you’ll find people who understand and are willing to support your efforts.


You Can Be Relentless …

How do you know that being relentless works?  We have many tremendous examples all around us.

From the biblical stories of Jacob (starting in Genesis 25:19), Moses (starting in Exodus 2:1), David, and even Jesus, who overcame great obstacles to become great men, to modern day relentless pursuers such as Team HoytRudy Ruettiger, and Erin Brockovich.

These are ordinary people who were relentless in achieving their goals, and because of their total refusal to listen to the haters, have achieved things that the rest of the world have deemed extraordinary.


… And Get What You Want

So what is your dream? What were you born to do?

Is it to raise great kids?  Start your own business?  Feed the hungry, save souls, or become so rich that you have diamonds to keep your other diamonds company?

Whatever your dreams and goals are, when you become relentless and decide that you’ll walk through any obstacle and endure any pain to get what  you’re in pursuit of, no matter how long it takes, you WILL get what you want.

What is your #1 goal or dream?

What are you doing right now to achieve that goal?

    Nr 1# dream? Build a childrens home in India. I have done two things that I know of. I know two women that moved to India. The first I helped get a job, when she waited on the visa, the second I helped paid off the student loans.

    This article is so true. Look at those who have made their lives better and set a positive example for others. Giving up is not an option if you have a dream in your heart. God will help those who help themselves. He will do His part and you have to do your part as well. If someone doesn’t “get It’ when you tell them your about your dreams, then that is something inside them, not you.
    You never know what you can accomplish unless you try. For anyone who has posted here and you have a dream, I wish you All The Best. Good Luck!

    • Thanks for the comment Judy! You’re right, you never know what you can accomplish until you try.

  • Double Your Two Cents

    My number 1 goal right now is to pay off the student loan debt my wife and I have accumulated. We are just getting started, but we are developing a budget in which we “relentlessly” pursue paying off our student loan debt. We will do this through frugal living and smart money choices. I have also started a frugal living blog recently, and I am praying that over time I can develop the blog into a source of additional income that we can designate toward increasing our financial wellness.

    • That’s awesome! Sounds like you have the right mindset to get the job done. Anytime you can make additional income it really accelerates the get out of debt process.

      Keep working hard!

  • Great stuff here Jason! I love your four bullet points about what does it mean to be relentless. I’ve felt all four of those as I’ve recently pursued running, with the goal of completing a marathon in under four hours. Especially the last one about other people not getting your dream. Should see the looks I get sometimes. But others don’t have to get it. My dream is for me. Thanks for the encouragement!

    • You’re so right, it doesn’t matter what other people think. Big goals make people uncomfortable. You have to move forward no matter who doesn’t get it.

  • John S @ Frugal Rules

    Nice post Jason, I could not agree more! I think amongst them, having patience is vital. It is so easy to give up when things get tough or when things get boring, but those that stick with it and continue to stick it out will be much more likely to see success.

    • Sticktoitiveness, I think, is where most people run into trouble. It’s easy to be motivated in the beginning or when things are going well. But when obstacles get in the way, or things aren’t progressing as you’d like, that’s when the weak quit and the relentless ones tough it out and get to the next level.

      You can’t consistently make it to the next level if you’re not willing to do whatever it takes to get there.

      Thanks John!

  • Laurie @thefrugalfarmer

    LOVE this, Jason! The only true way to failure is to quit trying. We are in the midst of a journey out of HUGE debt, and right now, like Mr. CBB said, moving the pile, rock by rock. It’s not easy, but we know that we will succeed if we continue to be relentless in pursuit of our dream. Great post!

    • Nothing good comes easy, keep plugging away and I’ll be talking to a debt free Laurie someday. BE RELENTLESS!!!

  • CanadianBudgetBinder

    Most people say they will “try” when they should say they will stop at nothing to reach their goals. Saying you will try leaves room for failure, quitting and worse abandoning the goal altogether. If someone really wants to pursue their dreams, nothing will get in the way. A man who wants to move a mountain will move it rock by rock… patience is key.

    • You said it brother! If you really want it, don’t leave room for excuses. Just get on with it and get it done, no matter how long it takes.

      Thanks Mr. CBB!
