The Need to Lead

In a world of so many choices and distractions, it’s not enough anymore to just want success in your life, career, or latest venture.

There must be a need.

When the going gets tough (success rarely comes without extreme pain, suffering, and challenge), people may quit on things they want.  However, they never quit on something they absolutely need.

It’s human instinct.

  • If you need food, you find it...even if you have to beg, borrow, or steal for it.
  • If you need sleep, you get it…even if you pass out in your car, at your desk, or on your way to bed.
  • If you need freedom, you break free…even if you lose your home, your wealth, or your life.  It’s called revolution.

Everyone has instincts that push them and they always find a way to get what they need, or they die trying.

It’s the same with success.

For those who need to do certain work, they will find a way to have success at it…even if it takes them years and countless nights of learning, pushing, and planning.

And so it is that talented 8pm Warriors will be most successful when they do work that inspires them to go harder, go further, go faster.

The work that they NEED to do.

When I look at myself, I can see that I need to lead teams and chase goals.  I’m not saying I’m always good at it, but it is clear to me what sort of work I need (love) to do and I plan on doing it the rest of my life.  I will be successful at it or will die trying.

Either way, at least I’m doing work that I love.

Tonight I passionately urge you to put aside any distractions for a minute and ask yourself:  “What do I need to do?”

Then get to it.

Have a great night,

Aaron@Biebert
