Recently, my friend Jason Williams gave me a short story to read, whose moral has consistently proven to be the most valuable lesson of my life. It talks about a poor farmer that dreams about getting rich, and starts mining for gold. Everybody calls this man crazy, but he refuses to listen, and stays firm in his resolutions. Eventually, he strikes gold, but not as much as he had hoped. He knows there is more to be found, and keeps going on for a long time. Eventually, he decided that he had enough and stops mining at one point, giving up and settling for what he found.
Many may think the success story ends here, as this is the point where even most great men give up in life. But, along came a second man that believed the first’s work to be incomplete, and started mining from the same point. After merely a few strikes, he hits the jackpot! He becomes famous, and gets all the riches and fame. The moral of this story, is that in the moment where you would have finally given up on yourself, is usually when you are right in front of success, and it is this point that separates the great from the legendary.
This has proven to be true in real life as well, as every time I think of settling and compromising, I have remembered this moral and kept going, and ALWAYS get what I want. If not in an hour, or a day, or a week, or a month, than in a few years. As long as you don’t give up on your dreams, and on what you want, you WILL get them when you are truly ready.
5 minutes before this article, we had been traveling all day, and I had just woken up to my parents offering me food which I didn’t want to eat, and neither did they. While they decided to settle for it, I refused it, and eventually the universe aligned, and I got EXACTLY what I want.
This has been consistently in my business as well, time in and time again. Whenever I feel like I had given my 110%, sacrificed every last thing I have to give, and wondered why I still didn’t get to where I want to be, I still pushed through, and kept working. Every single time, the reward and glory came briefly afterwards, be it in bodybuilding, business, or in applying for college.
Not settling for anything less than I want, pure perfectionism, is a core principle which I follow. Because of it, throughout my life, I have ALWAYS gotten what I wanted. Today, there is nobody else I would rather be, because I know that I am exactly where I should be, and that my dreams will become a reality when I am ready for them. I believe that if you implemented this principle in your own life, at least in some aspects, you would benefit greatly from it.
Rewards are never given overnight, though they may always appear that way to outsiders. People have always called me spoilt and pampered, thinking that everything I want is simply given to me, but I know better, which in the end is all that matters, and should be all that matters to you too.
Success in life is a long journey, which fluctuates between failure, success, loss, and then more success. Avoiding risk of failure and loss is essentially avoiding success. Keep striving forward, no matter how hard the roadblocks may seem, and NEVER settle for anything less than your dreams. Shoot for the moon, land on the stars, get back up, and then go to the freaking moon!
