Have you ever seen a person who set a goal to stop smoking? Most of them get excited and motivated for a couple of days or even a couple of weeks but pretty soon they give up and fail to get any results. Soon they will start saying excuses like, “I just don’t have the discipline.”
Let me ask you this.. If the doctor were to tell a father that if he continue smoking, his beloved daughter who is by his side every single day will die, do you think he will be able to achieve it? I am very sure he will!
“When a Goal becomes a MUST.. We will do WHATEVER IT TAKES to operate from a different mindset” – Jonathan Quek
One of the best stories of the power of MUST and about doing WHATEVER IT TAKES to succeed is the story of Slyvester Stallone.
He is known as one of the most popular and highly paid stars in Hollywood, commanding a fee of US$20 million per movie. However, did you know that he was someone who seemed to have all the odds stacked up against him to be where he is today?

For most people, achieve success in anything is merely a wish, not a MUST! They would love to move to another level in their finances or business, but they won’t die without it. They wish they could take charge of their lives, but they could live without it.
Sylvester Stallone achieve success not born more focused, more disciplined or more lucky than the average person. What makes him different is that he make his goals a MUST for himself and he is not willing to accept anything but the best.
So, the questions I have for you this week is…
1) Is your dream to be a Millionaire a MUST or are they just weak desires that you can live without?
2) Have you been truly committed to do WHATEVER IT TAKES in the past or have you quit and given yourself excuses along the way?
