You Gotta Like the Taste of Blood.

Let’s be frank.  You won’t be successful at much of anything if you aren’t willing to fight like a maniac to get what you want.

You have to enjoy the combat.  Relish it. Crave it. Expect it.  Plan it.

You have to want to grimace in the middle of the battle, lick the blood off the corner of your lip, and start swinging your sword again.

You have to want that.

It doesn’t mean you’re fearless. If doesn’t mean you can’t get hurt.

It just means that you need to want to fight for what’s important to you.

Because if you don’t want that you’re not going to make it. Your dream isn’t going to survive.

And that’s probably not something you can tolerate.

Now or any time.

    Right! That’s how badly you have to want it! And you have to be prepared to do whatever it takes, for as long as it takes. For some people, that’s meant decades. I love it when a post makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up, like this one did.

      We have it easy these days. Instead of fighting for what we want we now can pretend to be interested and try just hard enough look like we are “the underdog”.

      BooHoo. Pick up your battle-axe and start fighting for your life.

    Dan, I’ll tell you something and I dont care how it sounds this is mine. A few weeks ago on Twitter I said I had found a cause which I was prepared to die for. Discrimination in any form, simple thats it. Thats why I’m here. I’m looking for money. I’ve got something to sell. I’ll get back on that. Is that enough blood to be getting on with.
    PS First death threat has been received.
