The Most Powerful Word In Your Pursuit Of Success.

Achieving success requires answering the hard questions that challenge you in your day today struggle.

How long is it going to take to achieve your goals? How much longer are you going to have to sweat it out? When will things start getting easier?

You can spend countless time struggling to stay motivated when you aren’t sure how much longer it’s going to take. Or how much pain you’re going to need to endure.

All of the struggle can be remedied with a single mantra.

A single word. A single mindset. Until.

You will work until you build something you can be proud of. You will keep fighting until you conquer everything you want to control. You will dream big dreams until you envision a future you want to live in. You will keep working until you finish your mission. Until.

It’s a powerful word. Open ended. Definite. And final. It isn’t a 9-to-5 operation. It’s not just for weekdays or non-holidays.

There is no end time, just an end line. That’s the power of until.

It is as long as it takes.

Until is as much as you need to do. Until is you resolving to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes to achieve what you so desperately want for yourself.

Until you get there. Until it’s finished. Until you like what you see.

Until you dig yourself out. Until you stand above everyone else.

Until you become a better version of you.

Your until might be something different.

But if you don’t have one you’re probably not going to make it. Because the battle is more fierce then you can imagine if you don’t have a reason for fighting.

Find one. Make it a powerful part of everything you do each day.

Until you decide it’s enough.
