If you are going to push through major obstacles to reach your goal, you can’t just want to; you need to be in a full-on tizzy of excitement about what it is you are going after and hold on to it like a pit-bull.
In order to do this you need to have the audacity to be honest about what you really want to do, not what you should do, believe it is available to you regardless of any evidence otherwise, and go for it.
The old you, the one who has not yet decided to kick ass, is in the past. Stay present and do not, even for a second, look backward or entertain any idea of straying from your decision. Think only of the new you.
DECISIONS ARE NOT UP FOR NEGOTIATIONS!!
