Best Advice I Ever Got: Have the Courage to Follow Your Vision

I attribute much of our success to three pieces of advice that have become our guiding principles:

1. Ask, “How much do I really want it?”

My high school crew coach told me that success only depends on one thing: how much you really want it. The difference between winning and losing, he would say, is nothing more than deciding that you want to win.

 

This advice has had a huge impact on my life and career. Every time I’ve dreamt up a new idea or venture, my coach’s words have come to mind: How much do you really want this?

 

Asking yourself this question forces you to pause and evaluate the situation honestly. Do you have a true passion for it? Are you ready to do whatever it takes to make it work? Taking a genuine look at how much something matters to you will help you weed out certain projects and make time for the ones that truly captivate you.
