How Bad Do You Really Want to Succeed in Life? by Doug Firebaugh

Question. How bad do you really want to succeed in life?

Think about it... how bad? A little? A lot?

Another question - Are you willing to fight for it?

Are you willing to go the distance like you never have before, and bring out that fight in you that has been beaten down for so long?

Do you realize the only fight you have with Success is yourself? That's it. (CLUE!!)

Remember this - ALL Defeat comes from within.

Period. No exceptions.

The only person who can stop you from becoming successful is YOU. YOU FIGHT YOU all day long with untruths about yourself that attracts failure and mediocrity like a magnet on steroids.

The words you say.

The thoughts you think.

The words others say and you believe - your past which you cling to - and the excuses you have embraced.

But yet you want more out of life.

You know what FIGHT stands for? Forcing Inside Garbage <to> Honor Truth.

The truth about you, the truth about what your Creator wants for your life.  The truth about the greatness inside of you and the Fight that is starving to Pummel mediocrity and failure to smithereens – it's there, you know it is - it's just dormant.

Increase the size of the fight in you and face the truth about yourself.  There is a Bigger YOU inside that can create a destiny and future that's staggering if you let it, and let the Fighting Spirit in you refuse to give up or be denied.

He did.

He came home, slammed the books down on the table, ran upstairs, slammed the door and broke down and cried. It was his 10th grade year. His mother came in, and said, "Son...what's wrong?" Through a 15-year-old's broken heart, he said - "I got cut.  I didn't make the team. Said I was too small."

With incredible wisdom, the mother said, "Son, it's not the size of the person in the game.  It's the size of the game in the person." She left.

It clicked. In a huge way. Like nothing had ever before.

The next morning It started. He got up at 4:30 am and started practicing, every morning, every evening, every day, every week, every month.  Relentless, non-stop.  His Fight had Ignited.  He would not be denied. Through the snow, rain, sleet, ice, wind, hail, He kept practicing - gave up movies and things that he did before.  The Fight kept getting bigger. And bigger.  And Bigger.

And he kept saying, "It's not the size of the player in the game, but the size of the game in the player." Over and Over and Over.  And then it came around again.  The Season. He tried out with a focus so strong that it intimidated even the coach. His Fight was at Peak Force. And he made the team.  The next year he made the team.  And he went on to Explode the fight in him to where no one dared to stop him.

His name? Michael Jordan.

What's the size of your game?
