Are you willing to pay the price?

I have become obsessed with the question – Why are some people successful and others aren’t? I am reading and researching and learning and listening, constantly looking for the patterns and strategies that are present in every person that is successful.

One of them I would have to say, is the the principle of willingness – how WILLING are you to pay the price for success?

Successful people are willing to pay the price. Unsuccessful people aren’t.

And there is a reason so many people are not successful, and are not willing to pay the price … the reason is… the price is high! VERY HIGH!

Are you willing to:

Work harder and longer than anyone else?

Start earlier and finish later than everyone else?

Learn more, do more, be more?


These are some of the things you must be willing to do, to pay the price of success.

Damn – and I thought that pizza and a movie on a Friday night was going to get me there!

I LOVE it when people say – wow, I wish I could have your success – I’m like baby, it’s yours!!!!! If you want the tears, the pain, the frustration, the agony, the self doubt, self hatred and fear I had to overcome to get my results, if you want that, then be welcome to my success!!! 🙂 To quote one of my favourite musicals ‘The Sound of Music’ – “Nothing comes from nothing, nothing ever could.”

So in your riding journey, if you are not getting the success you wish, think about how much you have paid, and how much more are you willing to pay… whatever price is asked, for success?

To your success,
