There is a secret to getting what you want. An open secret that I will share with your right now. The secret is this:
To get what you want all you have to do is take it.
If you ask permission for what you want you are going to be denied. If you don't need permission you cannot be denied.
“Hey, do you think I can? Hey, is it ok if I do this? Hey, is it possible for me to win this time? Ok, sorry for asking. I would never break the rules. Thanks. Sorry for asking.”
Winners don't think the rules apply to them. And they are right. The rules of the game only apply to those who are willing to abide by the rules.
The guy with the #1 beside his name is the guy who did what it took to get there. He used every damn trick in the book and he broke all the rules and then he took what he wanted. He is the one who out-thought his opponents.
Playing by the rules is for losers. The rules are there to make sure you do not rise up. Playing by the rules is the same thing as doing the minimum. You cannot do the minimum to achieve maximum results. To get maximum results you have to produce maximum action.
If you play by the rules then you aren't trying very hard. If you're playing by the rules then you have turned off your brain and you're coasting on auto-pilot. Winners do what it takes to win, they do better than their best and they're always a step or two ahead.
“but but but but that's cheating! but but but but but that's not fair! but but but but I want to win I just don't want to do anything above and beyond, I don't want to do anything differently than what the rules say!”
Fairness and equality are for the lessers who cannot TAKE so they want to be GIVEN.
They stand with their fucking hands out expecting a medal. They stand with their fucking hands out expecting the same results as the men who took action.
They stand with their fucking hands out crying for more equality for them and less for you. They stand with their fucking hands expecting you to give them “equality”.
They want to scavenge your kill, like the Hyena scavenges the Lion's kill. They want praise for being inferior. They expect that by playing by the rules they'll be given the same gifts as the men who took action.
They expect inaction to provide the same result as action and when they aren't provided the same result they demand equality and fairness for everyone. Which means fairness and equality for them, and a handicap for the already capable. They don't even want to take from you, they want you to give.
This works to your advantage. While everyone is standing around with their damn hands out waiting for a miracle you can go grab opportunity, take advantage, break the rules and come out on top.
If you want something it's time to put your hands down, put your thinking cap on and figure out how to get it. There's a way to do everything. Put yourself into SUPERDRIVE.
Make a plan of action and stick to it. You may feel something on your feet. “Hmmm, what's that on my feet? Oh, those are hands trying to pull me down. Let me just kick those away and go about my business“.
Action fakers. Action fakers are the excuse makers. The ones that “could have done the same thing, if they wanted to”. The one's that cry about this and that and why they aren't ahead. If they wanted something and they could have done it then they would have done it.
Action takers. Actions takers figure out a way to accomplish their goal. They don't cry about cheating or why they lost. They plan, visualize, take action and then grab what they want.
Pick your choice.
- Make excuses about why you don't have it – If you aren't prepared to take action you can be rest assured that another man is prepared. You could have done the same thing he did, but you have chosen not to. But hey, at least you stood strong and didn't break the rules. At least you're morally superior. At least you're better at doing what you're told to do.
- Figure out a way to do it and then take what you want – The only real option. If you want something you plan for it, you visualize it, you take action and then you grab it. That's mine. Give me that. What the knucklehead losers think of your actions is of no consequence. If you want it, friend, you damned sure will find a way to get it. If you want it you will take it. No excuses, no whining and no crying. Just killing.
