Made for More:

I am Sold Out
Saying you’ll give anything to be this or that is sheer deception and passing emotions. If you truly want to be anything at all, that is learning a vocation, a trade, a language, or whatsoever, the starting point is writing it down. "If you want to be successful, find out what the price is, and then pay it." (Scott Adam)

That forces you to think about it. That distills the vapor of your flirting thoughts into a liquid for you to see how much it truly is. How much do you really want this achievement? Then ask, what will it take? What will it cost? Find out and write it down.

What are the benefits to be derived from this desired acquisition? Write it down. Then, weigh the benefits against the cost. Are the benefits worth the sacrifices? Are you willing to make the sacrifices? Are you capable of making the sacrifice?

You still want it? Then, do something about it. Set up and action plan towards accomplishing it.

So, stop saying you'll give anything for something. First, count the cost. Successes aren't easy. In my colloquial languages, "it is not beans." It might look easy from afar, don't be deceived. Every success comes with a price tag. First, find out the price tag, and ascertain you are willing to pay before you start to say you can give anything for it.

The cool thing, though, at the end of the day is, you are possible. It is possible. If you are hungry enough for it and willing to pay the price the goods are yours. Don't let no blind folk talk you out of it.
