You Gotta Want It!

My swimming buddy, Terry, all six foot five of him grinned as he looked over at me this morning and said “You gotta want it.” It’s 5am and I’m looking forward to swimming that mile. But Terry has no body fat and has competed in the Ironman, in Hawaii, five times-He knows about desire and discipline. The same discipline you and I have to bring in the financial arena. You’ve heard me speak before about “the transformative event”. The event that drives you to seek financial independence. Mine was at age 11 when my mom told me that we could not afford to go to the Mayo Clinic-seeking that miracle cure for me to walk again! I never forgot that day-and it has certainly motivated me over the years. Now as I prepare to have a stem cell transplant operation for me and another individual those words came back to me. Fortunately, I control my financial destiny and look forward to raising the $100,000+ it will take to make this happen-Terry’s right, “You gotta want it.” Have a great weekend! 🙂

    I agree with you 100% on the “transformative event”. I had mine in college when I was shocked to see how low my account was. I said from then on, only upward.

    I’m jealous-in college I had no account to look at! Congratulations on your early resolve. The neat thing about a transformative event is that it does not necessarily have to be a sad or horrible event-just an acknowledgement that you can win the cash flow game!!
