Are You Willing?

August 5th, 2007 | No Comments |

Have you ever been asked that question before by someone else? Have you been asked that question by an employer, a family member, a doctor, or even and investor? In order to get this are you willing to do….what? When it comes to your dreams and your passions, what are you willing to do or to sacrifice to get those dreams and those passions in your life? I would hope that you wouldn’t sacrifice your values or your identity, and you shouldn’t. But you should be willing to do whatever it may take as far as posessions are concerned.

For example: When Amy and I were on a flight down to Cancun she had an epiphany. She finally realized what that meant to be willing to do whatever it takes to get what we really want in life. We had just built a new home with our own sweat and blood and it was very dear to us. We wanted to do what it took to keep the home. It was nice! But really, it is just a home and that is all it is. It was not us. It was not all that we wanted in life. Would we be willing to entertain the possibility of losing that house for the sake of living our dreams? The answer to that is, absolutely! We were and are willing to sacrifice and take significant enough risks to get to where we deserve to be in life. If that means losing our home, we are willing to take that risk. Seriously, we would just build another one later. Emotional detachment from possessions is necessary in having the ability to do what it takes.

So most of us have been asked by others if we are willing, but have you ever asked yourself that question. That opens up a whole new can of worms. If someone asks you if you are willing to jump off that 60 ft cliff into that little pond of water below or jump out of a perfectly good airplane at 13,000 ft, your answer may be yes, I am willing, but in the back of your mind you are thinking just the opposite. When you ask yourself a question such as ,’Are you willing,’ you know the answer right away. If you expect great success in your life you must adopt this one simple principle. You must be willing to do whatever it takes!!
