What are you willing to sacrifice to succeed?

How important is your college education to you?

Or, as phrased by Eric Thomas, the Hip Hop Preacher, in the video below, “How bad do you want it?”
 

Now is when the reality sets in of how difficult this journey is. So all of you should be asking yourselves those questions.

Video—How Bad Do You Want It?

(video link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRfoFGGyRvU)

 

Highlights:

 

“When you want to succeed as bad[ly] as you want to breathe, then you will be successful.”

 

“Most of you don’t want success as much as you want sleep. Some of you love sleep more than you love success. And I’m here to tell you today, if you’re going to be successful, you’ve got to be willing to give up sleep. You’ve got to be willing to work with three hours of sleep—two hours of sleep—if you really want to be successful. Someday you’re going to have to stay up three days in a row. Because if you go to sleep, you might miss the opportunity to be successful.”

 

“Don’t cry to quit. You’re already in pain; you already hurt. Get a reward from it.”
