This video never fails to get us pumped in the decade since it was posted. We all face the same internal struggle when the alarm clock goes off in the morning. It’s easy to stay in bed, under the covers, and resist the day’s challenges.

Choose success

This is the first battle you fight every day. You have a choice to make: stay in bed or get up and fight for what you want.

When you’re coming from a difficult background it’s easy to make excuses and put off the hard work until tomorrow. The world throws distractions your way all promising an easier path. But those easy paths won’t get you to your goals.

If you want to achieve financial success and pull yourself up to the station in life you feel like you deserve you have to push yourself, even when it’s difficult.

There is the right way and the easy way

There are millions of different paths you can take that seem easier than the uphill path to success. If this was easy everyone in your life would be successful.

But you can’t give up. You have to drown out the voice of uncertainty with your own determination. Remember why you started this journey in the first place.

Winners kept going

One small mistake can set you back. So you have to be prepared. Don’t let the little things trip you up. Be sure you’ve done everything you can to prepare yourself for the challenges ahead.

Instead of waiting for your doubts to attack go out and face them head-on. Believe in yourself and your ability to succeed. You have to have the same kind of relentless hunger for success as a hungry lion.

Success won’t come by luck alone, it’s a choice. You have to decide that you are willing to put in the sweat and hard work required to achieve your goals. In the end, destiny waits for no man. You are the one who controls your own fate. So get up, rise and shine, and go out there and conquer your day.
