“When you want to succeed as badly as you want to breathe, then you will be successful.”
Last week’s episode was, “What do you want?” This week, the question is “How hungry are you?”
Hunger is an interesting concept because taken in its most literal sense, there are few driving forces quite as primal.
Hunger gets people to take action and immediately.
Hunger is also very binary. You either eat or you die. Thus, non-action isn’t an option. You are forced to take action toward your goal.
Goal achievement, at is most elementary level, is binary as well. Are you hungry enough to achieve your goal? You either truly want the goal or you don’t.
The challenge, the great impediment to our progress, is often comfort. Our behaviors are driven largely by two great forces; pain and pleasure. When we’re comfortable, well feed, (not hungry) we’re less likely to move into the pain of goal pursuit.
Consider a super-star athlete like Michael Jordan. What was Jordan famous for? It was his competitive drive often fueled by his constant practice of fabricating an edge to keep him hungry!
