Entrepreneur Success Question
How Hungry Are You?
“How Hungry Are You“?
Strange question to be asking isn’t it?
Or is it?
There are a lot of people who are wanting to create entrepreneurial success but one thing we have concluded (from those we have worked with and those who have come to speak to us) is that you have to be hungry. Actually we will go one step further than that and say you have to be really hungry!
Why is that? Because how successful you are depends on how hungry you are. For instance will you fall at the first hurdle or will you keep going. Is there are overriding force driving your on?
The question you are going to hear throughout this post therefore is “how hungry are you“?
We recently listened to an audio from Darren Hardy (the owner of Success Magazine) and he calls this hunger your ‘why‘. Your core motivation (hunger) for wanting to succeed. Without what he calls “why power” you will not stick it out -that is the grueling, mundane and laborious. He talks of how all of the ‘how’s will be meaningless and insurmountable until your why’s are powerful enough (your hunger) and you will end up like every other person who signs up for a new business opportunity and give in too quickly and revert back to an unfulfilling pattern of the old life.
Every week people come to us and tell us they broke, frustrated with their life, tried other “things” and not made any money. We wish we had the magic answer. We don’t! All we know is that when you are hungry enough to make it work then you can.
Let’s explain because there’s good news and there’s bad news. The good news is that everyone goes through that at least once and usually more than once (we certainly did). The bad news is that unless you are hungry and your why is strong then you will likely fail again and again until that particular pattern is broken i.e. you become so HUNGRY you will do anything to succeed.
It’s why the question we always ask is ”how hungry are you“? How strong is your ‘why’ ?
Our friend Ray Higdon explains this really well and gives you two exercises to do …
How Hungry Are You?
You see you have to be willing to do ONE thing. Not care about anything other than crafting the life you currently don’t have and be willing to take the actions you have not been taking up until today.
You heard Ray talk about how he was broke, in foreclosure and not making any money and how that all changed for him?
How he set himself a goal to succeed and not give us.
Understand you are not alone
Each of us have gone through a challenge of some kind to bring us to focus and commit unconditionally to doing what it takes to achieve success that solves that problem.
Just like we did and just like Ray did
Did those exercises in the video show you that when you are truly hungry you force yourself to be uncomfortable? As Ray says, the unfortunate part is most of society is comfortable. Comfortable in their own misery. They don’t much like their life but at least they know what to expect (we remember that very well). When you start to ramp up your true level of hunger you have for success and a life change you will see a small shift. That small shift will lead to bigger shifts and bigger shifts.
What if this time round you started going after your business with a real hunger knowing that you just had to do this to survive?
So before you go rushing into the next “big thing” or then next business opportunity, network marketing opportunity or MLM please just ask yourself that one question “how hungry am I”? And only when you can answer honestly and be prepared to commit will you focus on seeing it through to the end.
