Has anyone ever told you that obsession was a bad thing? Whomever said it, probably doesn’t have a history of reaching their goals. Are you obsessed with reaching your goals? I am obsessed with reaching my goals. And according to Grant Cardone, in his book “10X“, you must be obsessed with reaching your goals, or you won’t reach them!
In the past, I’ve had people tell me I was obsessed with my business. At the time, I didn’t take this as a compliment. I do now. To be successful at anything, you must obsessed with reaching your goals.
Obsession is a natural state. We are born with obsession. Think about children. They are naturally obsessed with everything. And they stay this way, till they are told “No”. Over and over and over. This is a bad thing. Maybe just encourage them to be obsessed with something constructive, not destructive.
All of us are obsessed about something in our lives.TV, poker, sports, business, working out, alcohol, drugs, all have many people obsessed. Some of us are obsessed over destructive things, and others, productive things.
I don’t know about you, but I’d rather be obsessed with reaching my goals. When I heard my company announce an incentive trip to Mexico, I knew the time was now. I committed myself and created an obsession to earn the trip. Never before this commitment to obsession, had I been a top earner in my company.
