“How much do you want it?”
You know what I’m talking about. The end-game. The result.
That thing you say you want — that goal you set a ways back,
that unfinished project, that brilliant idea.
The question’s standing out there,
peering at you sideways with a cocked head and slitty eyes:
“How much do you really want it?”
I (and everyone else who knows you) can tell
how much you really want it.
All we have to do is look at actions.
(What you spend your time on.)
We all have that thing that we talk about, that thing we “want.” But
our lives — our actions — really show if we want it or not.
<<Desire is one thing.>>
<<Doing the work is another.>>
(Gah. Truth hits the mark again.)
‘Cause if we really want it, we’ll do the work.
Now. Passionately. With visible effort.
(Turn on the work ethic. The results might amaze you.)
