How Bad Do You Want to Be Successful?

Written by on September 1, 2011 in Motivational Videos, your Mind with 5 Comments

I had a great twitter conversation a couple of days ago with a buddy.   I told him that I started an entrepreneurial venture a number of years ago and when it didn’t work out I ran back to Corporate America.  However, when I quit AGAIN on 3/31/06, to trade full time, I burnt the bridges behind me (figuratively not literally).  There ain’t no running back this time.

I always say that sleep is over rated. This video reminded me of that…

“If you want to be successful you gotta be willing to give up sleep.  You gotta be willing to work off of 2-3 hours sleep. Somedays you may have to stay up three days in a row, because if you are asleep you may miss the opportunity to be successful!”

    Sleep is underrated. It helps you think more clearly and advance faster in all mental and physical endevours.

    I agree on sleep. I need at least 6 hrs or I can’t make it through the day. I like to get up early (4) and work while it’s quiet, too.

    IMO, it depends on where u are in life. When I was working a 9 to 5, there were only so many hours left in the day. If I slept more than 4-5 hours – I could never accomplish what I wanted to do for myself. Once I was doing my own thing, I could expand it to 6, since all waking hours were devoted to my goals.  Personally, I couldn’t sleep over 6 hours if I tried except for maybe vacation…

    Along those same lines, Bobby Knight said, “Everybody has the will to win. To be successful, you need the will to *prepare* to win.”

    Honestly sleep is the reason why a lot of people isnt successful ,i think the hardest thing to do is not go to sleep
