"People want success just like their coffee in the morning. They want instant." Greg Hickman

Instant gratification is not soon enough for most people's tastes these days, not with all of the conveniences at their seeming beck and call. With all sorts of things available at a moment's notice, be it food or information or just about everything else under the sun, people are accustomed to getting what they want when they want it. And make no mistake about it; they want it all. And they want it now.

In a world where so much is accessible so fast, waiting has become almost passé. And sadly, actually working for what you want in life has pretty much followed the same path. Way too many people want way too much without putting in the time or effort to earn it. In fact, to some people, the very notion that you have to earn what you want seems so, well... old fashioned and behind the times.

"Few people want to wait for things. Even fewer want to work for things." Greg Hickman

If success is not attained right away, some people get annoyed. And all worked up. It doesn't matter if they have worked for it. Nor does it concern these folks one bit whether or not they have actually earned anything. They just expect everything they desire to be served up on a silver platter. In a jiff, on the spot, right then and there. They feel they deserve it and that should be good enough.

Why shouldn't they have it right now? Why should they have to wait? After all, they want it. And they want it now. These people give me a headache.

There is nothing wrong with wanting the best life has to offer. Just about everyone who has ever reached any level of success, regardless of their chosen field or profession, had a great deal of 'want' inside them. They wanted to achieve. They wanted to succeed. They wanted to make their dreams come true. These are natural wants and desires that everyone possesses. But these winners also discovered something very quickly on their trek to the top: wanting alone doesn't cut the mustard.

When you want something to happen, you have to work to make it happen. And work like heck.

"Want instant gratification? Buy a dog." Greg Hickman

If you think for one minute that anybody owes you anything at all, you are in for a very rude awakening. No one is going to give you anything; at least nothing worth having. If you want it, you better be prepared to go get it. And make it happen on your own.

You better learn how to work. You better learn how to maximize your time and resources. You better learn how to make changes on the fly and to keep moving in a positive direction. And you had better learn these things as quickly as possible - the sooner, the better.

To be blunt; success in life is earned. You have to go get it one step, one act, and one day at a time. You have to put something IN before you get something OUT. Have a goal you want to achieve? Then roll up your sleeves and get to work. Have some dreams you want to bring to life? Then put on your work clothes and start doing. Have all sorts of things you want to be, see and do? Then hit the streets and start making them happen.

Some people avoid work like the plague. And it shows. Only willing to expend a bare minimum of effort, bare minimum results become their reality. And they don't like it; not one bit. So they begin crying and carping about what they don't have or what they think they deserve. And endlessly whine about life not being fair. Good grief. Who says life is fair? Life is not fair. Life is what you make of it. If you want fair, head to the amusement park. Otherwise, you better get busy.

"Want without work doesn't work." Greg Hickman

Are you ready to crank it up, to take a crack at the big time? Are you sure? Are you really serious about getting ahead and getting somewhere? Then you better ditch that entitlement mentality right now. If you are going to get the things you want, you are going to have to get them yourself... starting today.

Determine what you want to accomplish. Write anything and everything you want to see, be and do. I'm not kidding. WRITE IT ALL DOWN. Then outline the steps you must take to get there. Write them down in meticulous detail. AGAIN, WRITE IT DOWN ON PAPER. The power of the written word cannot be understated. Very few people ever take the time to write down their goals. Correspondingly, very few ever attain their dreams.

Got your list? A written list of the goals and objectives you wish to achieve? If not, you are not even in the starting blocks. Until you have a written list of goals and objectives, nothing is going to happen. And you are going nowhere. Get this straight. You have to write down the things you want to accomplish before you can even start to make a dent in the list.

If you are too 'busy' to make a list, you have no chance. In fact, if making a list is just too tough, you might as well join the crybabies who think life is not fair. And then duck. Life is going to smack you around like a ping-pong ball.

If you've actually taken the time to make a list, get moving. Start with item number one. Go get it. Go get it with intensity. Go get it fire. Go get it with fervor. Start pursuing that one specific goal with unrelenting purpose and passion until you attain that objective. Then go get the next one. And keep going.

Before long, you will discover a secret that the most successful have long since uncovered. That secret is simply this: you can make the impossible come to life when you are willing to earn it.

Power Pointer: Forget want power. Develop some fire power. And get to work.
