Midnight Musings and Motivations

For sure, achieving success is glamorous but remember that its road is neither shiny nor paved in a hurry.

Succeed, trophy, quote, road to success, self-help, motivation, inspiration

The want to succeed is often expressed and held in the heart of many, but the need to succeed is expressed by few.

We are all free to want, but our zeal to succeed must be fueled by our driving need. Remember that a need is something that is vital for your survival (such as food and shelter), whereas your want is simply something that you would like to have.

Success takes the whole nine yards and more. Always ask yourself, why do I need to succeed in this? Is it vital to my well-being?

Will failure in this pursuit be detrimental to you or is your wish to do this just one of the notches to add to your list of achievements?

Holding on to that hungry need serves to drive you, that even when you fall down today, you’ll get up tomorrow and keep going.

  1. As I sit here making plans to go to the VA (Veteran’s Administration Hospital) seeking help for yet even more health problems fighting a damaged body I’m glad I did most of what I wanted to do when I was younger.

    My advice to younger people teens, 20s, 30s & 40s is do everything you want to do or desire while you are young and healthy enough to accomplish your goals because you never know what is going to happen to you after 50. After I had a stroke at age 49 my life has changed. Including most of my plans. Now everything revolves around doctors.

    As the expression goes, “Old Soldiers Never die. They Just fade away.”
