Yesterday I told you a bit about how I did it. Today I’m going to tell you WHY I did it.
I did it because I was highly motivated.
I’d face my worst fear, a life threatening illness and after that there seemed nothing I couldn’t face. So… I decided to face the snake.
I told everyone I knew, and many I didn’t, that I was going to be sponsored to handle a live snake.
In other words, I made a commitment. Once I’d done that I felt buoyed up with enthusiasm, thrusting a sponsor form under the noses of everyone.
‘I wish I was brave, like you,’ they said. ‘I’m afraid of spiders but I couldn’t…’
Yes, they could! If they were MOTIVATED enough.
In my view, the key to reaching any challenge is,
MOTIVATION, MOTIVATION, MOTIVATION.
I was passionate about reaching my challenge, and it showed.
- About this challenge of yours. Are you passionate enough?
- Or would you just quite like to achieve it?
- Make your choice. Be passionate about it – or choose a different challenge you are passionate about.
‘Decide that you want it more than you’re afraid of it.’ Bill Cosby
