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 People in Pursuit of a Goal
Sometimes achieving your goals feels like an uphill battle that never ends. But when you see even the smallest results, that tells you you're on the right track. It spurs you on to the next small victory, then another until they start turning into big wins.
So, when will the really big wins start happening?
It's hard to say for sure.
The big wins may start happening sooner than you think. Or they might start happening later, after you've put in your 10,000 hours.
But I do know this- if you are relentless in the pursuit of your goals, 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.
Little Effort Gets Little Results
Then you pursued that goal and let your efforts wane after a short time?
We've all been guilty of it. I've done it dozens, maybe hundreds of times.
What kinds of results did I see from those efforts? Little to none (as you would expect).
4 Characteristics of Relentless People
Why is it that so many things we start never amount to anything? It's because we don't pursue them relentlessly.
- Being relentless means not giving up when things get stale or boring (they will at times, even if you're passionate about your goals)
- It's also about facing the obstacles that inevitably get in the way. When you go after goals that will change your life or change the world, it's not easy.
- Being relentless also means being patient. You must understand that if you consistently do everything you can to succeed 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 goal makes people uncomfortable because it reveals a lack of passion in their own lives. Get around other people who are in relentless pursuit of their goals and you'll find people who understand, people who 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 Hoyt, Rudy Ruettiger, and Erin Brockovich.
These are ordinary people who were relentless in achieving their goals. Because of their total refusal to listen to the haters, they achieved things that the rest of the world has deemed extraordinary.
… And Get What You Want
So what is your dream? What were you born to do?
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 want, no matter how long it takes, you WILL achieve your goal.
