How bad do you want to be successful?

Okay,there's a story about a young man who wanted to make a lot of money and a Guru.

He told the guru: "You know, I wanna be on the same level you are", and the guru said: "If you wanna be on the same level I’m on, I’ll met you tomorrow at the beach, at 4 am!".
    So the young man got there 4 A.M. he already to rock n’ roll. Got on a suit, should of wore shorts. The old man grabs his hand and said: "How bad do you wanna be successful?" He said: “Real bad”. He said: "Walk on out in the water". So he walks out into the water. Watch this. When he walks out to the water he goes waist deep and goes like: This guy crazy! Hey! I wanna make money and he got me out here swimming. I didn’t ask to be a lifeguard. I wanna make money he got me in – so he said come on a little further – walked out a little further – then he had it right around this area – the shoulder area – so this old man's crazy – he's making money but he's crazy. So he said: come on out a little further – came out a little further, it was right at his mouth – my man, I’m not about to go back in this guy is out of his mind. And the old man said: “I thought you said you wanted to be successful?” He said: “I do.” He said: “Then walk a little further.” He came, dropped his head in, held him down, hold him down, my man (kept scratching) hold him down, he had him held down, just before my man was about to pass out, he raised him up.
"I got a question for you,when you were under water, what did you want to do?".Young man said, I wanted to breathe man.
"When you want to succeed as bad as you wanna breathe, then you will be successful!".

And that's it. Simple as that.

 You see, most of you say, you wanna be successful, but you don't want it bad, you kinda want it! Most of you don't want success as much as you wanna sleep. Somebody  loves sleep more than he loves success!
And I'm here to tell you today, if you wanna be successful you gotta be willing to give up of sleep!
If you really wanna be successful, someday you will have to stay 3 days and work. Because if you go to sleep you may miss an opportunity to be successful, that's how bad you gotta want it!
Listen to me, you gotta wanna be successful so bad that you forget to eat!
Check this out, 50 cent was making a movie, and at the same time a soundtrack! He said:"SLEEP? SLEEP!!!?? Sleep is for those people who are broke! I don't sleep!".
I say, don't cry to give up, cry to keep going! Don't cry to quit, you're already in pain, you're already hurt, get a reward from it!
