"whatever it takes" lone wolf quotes
whatever it takes meaning?
Are you willing to do whatever it takes to Succeed? If you can honestly answer this question you truly understand the "whatever it takes meaning".
There are a lot of actions that we need to take to get where we are going. Those who are committed to do anything and everything to make their dreams a reality need to create momentum. Most people are not willing to do “whatever it takes.” They might give 50%. Some might give 75%. A few might even go as high as 90%. But very few give that last remaining chunk of energy and motivation.
The truth is, it’s often this small amount of extra effort that finally unlocks success. Sometimes, it’s the only way you can succeed.
True transformation and change are hard. That’s why most never do it.
How determined are you?
Asking “are you willing to do whatever it takes?” creates a movement inside you and has you consider the actions you really need to take. If the answer is anything but yes, then the goal isn’t right. You need to go back and choose something you are willing to do anything to achieve. For many people, the answer is an immediate and resounding yes—the goal is so big, so lofty and so inspiring, they would do whatever it takes to get there.
You can have whatever you want — if you’re willing to do whatever it takes.
Embrace hard work.
Many people romanticize professional services businesses as "lifestyle" businesses, complete with three-hour lunches and a cushy schedule. But, the unglamorous truth is that growing and running a professional services firm takes a tremendous amount of roll-up-your-sleeves hard work. The long hours and "do whatever it takes to get the job done" work ethic that my parents brought to their contracting business were a good role model. Especially in the first years of the business, the answer to many of our challenges was simply longer hours and harder work.
Think outside the box.
If you are willing to do whatever it takes to get to your goal, the follow-up question is: “What do you need to get there?” This is where people start to struggle. In many cases, the actions people take are the correct ones—consistent actions that propel you toward your goal. But if that was enough, why aren’t you closer to your goal by now? Consider what else you could do to get there. Who could you contact that has succeeded in the past? What groups, classes or events could you join?
Step outside of your comfort zone.
If you are willing to do anything to achieve your goal, that also means taking actions you’ve never taken before. This might mean contacting people above you, making financial investments you might not feel entirely ready for or seeking out opportunities for increased brand exposure. Whatever it is, you need to move past the fear and be willing to take the first step forward. If you stay where you are, you will never get closer to your goal.
If you want to become world-class at what you do and achieve any goal you set, you must be willing to do what 99% of people won’t do. To achieve what no one else has, you must do what no one else does. The fact is, most people have a very low tolerance for pain and discomfort. Their threshold for experiencing fear, difficulty, and struggle is very low. This is why so many people live small lives that are, frankly, mediocre. This presents an amazing opportunity for anyone willing to do whatever it takes to win. It means if you’re willing to continue when everyone around you quits, all the prizes at the end are up for grabs.
In the words of uber-successful entrepreneur and author Tim Ferriss: “It’s lonely at the top. 99% of people are convinced they are incapable of achieving great things, so they aim for mediocre. The level of competition is thus fiercest for ‘realistic’ goals, paradoxically making them the most competitive.”
Narrow your focus to achieve enormous energy output.
“You’ve got to wake up every morning with determination if you’re going to go to bed with satisfaction.” -George Lorimer
If you have more than 2–3 ultimate priorities, you really don’t have any priorities at all. If you want extremely high and focused energy to spend on your most important tasks, you need to cut ties with all distractions. Whatever mediocre, pointless obligations you have that drain your time need to go. This is the only way to achieve a new mental state of being that allows you to do whatever it takes to succeed. As writer Benjamin Foley once said: “If your lifestyle does not add to your healing, it will subtract from it.”
You won’t be able to be someone who can accomplish anything if you’re distracted with the minutiae everyone else is worrying about. If you want intense energy and hyper-focus, you need to narrow your focus. Start shedding all unnecessary and draining obligations that only distract you from what really matters.
Take massive action.
Beyond doing the actions that will bring you closer to your goals, you must also be willing to dream and act bigger. You cannot win big contracts if you’re not willing to reach out to decision-makers at large organizations. You cannot be given opportunities to speak on large stages if you don’t contact the organizers. Those who are willing to do whatever it takes will look toward their ultimate dream and take the necessary massive action to bring immediate results, instead of hoping they will eventually work their way up to that point. There’s a saying that if you never ask, the answer will always be no, but if you just ask, you might get a yes.
If You Want It, Then You Have to Take It.
“The best men are not those who have waited for chances but who have taken them, besieged chance, conquered the chance, made chance the servitor.” -E.H. Chapin
Follow up and follow through.
It is not enough to take massive action once, you must do it over and over. You might put in your requests and never hear back. This could happen several times. People get busy; they forget about emails; they never check their voicemail—no different than you or me. You might have to follow up several times before receiving a response. You might have to make several presentations before you finally nail it. Once that moment hits, express it with gratitude and ensure the person and opportunity is not forgotten. Use that moment as momentum for your next big step, because you were willing to do whatever it takes to get to your goal—and you will be able to do it all over again.
Know your niche.
The most successful time for my parents' business was when they focused on a narrow niche: as a preferred subcontractor for the growing public school districts surrounding Denver, Colo. For my company, that niche is employee benefits communication for forward-looking large employers. For any struggling services business, my first piece of advice is to more narrowly define your niche. Then you'll know just how to define your voice so your customers can find you.
You can have whatever you want if you do whatever it takes to win.
Most people aren’t willing to put forth such a great effort. In many cases, they simply can’t — they’re burdened with too many mediocre obligations that prevent them from achieving greatness. You can cultivate this intensely focused lifestyle by cutting out distractions and focus on learning and creating instead of entertainment. Start small by simply being willing to change a little. This creates unstoppable momentum most people won’t ever experience. Will you become someone who will do that hard work of “whatever it takes?” If so, you’ll be able to achieve whatever you want.
