When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful- Eric Thomas
Eric Thomas tells us to put our head underwater for a minute. After the minute has passed you will notice the rising urge to breathe. But you don’t go up to the surface, not just yet. The urge to allow fresh air into your lungs will become omnipresent. It is no longer just an urge, but it starts turning into a deep desire.
A couple of seconds later there will be nothing else on your mind, except the wish to breathe. Nothing will be able to distract you in this situation; nothing will be able to diverge your focus and attention away from the situation.
In fact, your focus is laser-sharp and directed on only one thing: managing to get up to the surface so that you can fill your lungs with fresh air. Do you want to watch television in this situation? Do you want to surf the Internet? Do you need any rest? Not at all. All you want to do is to breathe. Nothing else.
I can guarantee you that you will succeed in whatever you are doing, if only you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe after being submerged by water for more than a minute.
Think about it.
