Humans are always looking for ways to become better versions of themselves and grow to the next level. With a ton of self-help books, we are determined to get ourselves together and run that road that is less traveled. We are hungry for success. We set our goals and say that we will do whatever it takes to achieve them. However, do we walk the talk? Are we convicted enough to chase our dreams?
The Fear Factor series comes to mind whenever I listen to myself say I will do whatever it takes to get where I want to be. I always pose this question. If it meant feeding on raw intestines would I do it? As gross as that sounds, it simply means not taking no for an answer and overcoming any barrier no matter what. It means burning with fire from within that you want success so badly to withstand any suffering, pain, and discomfort as you stay on course to what’s at the finish line.
“Don’t do your best, do whatever it takes.”
The naked truth is that if you are not ready to do whatever it takes, then you have not convicted yourself enough. You lack self-belief and are afraid to take risks. Well, you may have the conviction but when it comes to execution, you fail terribly. What makes most people who are hungry for success, fail to do whatever it takes?
- Lack of a strong mindset
- Failure to believe in oneself
- Fear to fail
What exactly should you do to fasten your belt and literally do whatever it takes to accomplish your goals?
I recently read a story of a young Nigerian girl who was spotted doing her homework under the security light of an ATM lobby in her neighborhood. Does that sound to you like doing whatever it takes? This girl did not care about the cold or the crawling insects by the night. She was determined to do her homework.
The lack of power or lighting at home was not an excuse enough for her to fail. She quickly formulated a plan of how she’d overcome her challenge and get her homework done! She braved the weird stare of strangers passing by and took the action. She was determined to DO WHATEVER IT TOOK to pursue her goal of completing her homework.
As cliche, as it may sound, being comfortable with the uncomfortable, is the first step in doing whatever it takes. Going against all odds and coming out a champion. Doing the unimaginable; the uncomfortable. What most people are not willing to do. Being ready to face any challenge and overcome it. Being hungry for success. To keep moving no matter what.
If doing whatever it takes means waking up at 3 am, do it. If it means cutting down carbohydrates and sugar intake, do it. If it is taking the public commuter, learning continuously for six months and deferring present gratification for future benefits, DO IT!
Research has it that if you do whatever it takes to make your dream come true consistently for the next 90 days, your results will skyrocket, you will live your dream and will have a life of abundance. What’s holding you back? Start right away, get up and DO WHATEVER IT TAKES to make your dream a reality.
What Top Performers Really Do For Motivation
“Ugh, I gotta get up,” I said to myself as another episode started within three seconds of the last one ending…without my permission. “Alright, I’m gonna go get some work done after this episode.” Of course, the episode ends on a cliffhanger that leaves me more motivated to find out what happens rather than go send emails. “Alright, when I figure out what happens, I’m gonna turn the TV off.” Geez, why am I still on the couch three hours later?

The Importance of Motivation in the Concept of Sociology
All my childhood, I studied hard and got good grades because I was motivated to escape my mother’s disappointment and wrath on failure. Others in my class were motivated by their desire to excel and get into a good college. Still, others were doing it to maintain their social status and to be recognized as excellent students. The word “motivation” holds a different meaning for different people, as what motivates you may not be sufficient for me and vice versa. (more…)
20 Science-Backed Ways to Stay Motivated (Infographic)
Motivation is something we all strive to have, but can also be one of those feelings that’s hard to keep. Whether we’re attempting to reach a new fitness goal or trying to stay motivated in our role at work, sometimes that motivation just isn’t there. You feel motivated for a while – you’ll listen to podcasts, read books, keep yourself accountable – but then it’s lost. You feel so much energy at the start, then feel yourself slowly losing that inspiration. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. (more…)
