Do whatever it takes
There was a young man who, you know, he wanted to make a lot of money, and so he went to this guru, right? He told the guru, you know, “I want to be on the same level you on.” And so the guru said, “If you want to be on the same level I’m on, “I’ll meet you tomorrow at the beach at 4am.” He like, “The beach? “I said I wanna make money. “I don’t want to swim.” Guru said, “If you want to make money, “I’ll meet you tomorrow, 4am.”
So the young man got there, 4am. He all ready to rock and roll, got on a suit. The old man grabs his hand, said, “How bad you want to be successful?” He said, “Real bad.” He said, “Walk on out in the water.” When he walks out to the water, it goes waist-deep.
So he like, “This guy crazy. “I want to make money, “he got me out here swimming.” But the old man said, “I thought you said you wanted to be successful.” He said, “I do.” He came, dropped his head in, held him down, hold him down. Just before my man was about to pass out, he raised him up. He said, “I got a question for you.” He said, “When you were underwater, “what did you want to do?” He said, “I wanted to breathe.” He told the guy, he said, “When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, “then you’ll be successful.”
And I’m here to tell you, number one, that most of you say you want to be successful, but you don’t want it bad. You just kind and want it. You don’t want it badder than you want to party. You don’t want it as much as you want to be cool. It’s only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go. Are you hearin’ me? You don’t count the cost on this one. You don’t count the cost on this one. You, you just do what you gotta do on this one, and then you look back when it’s all over and you see the reward. You look back and you see the account, but you don’t count it. You just look back and you see that you succeeded.
So what I’m telling you is, you can’t count the cost, because if you count the cost and you see how much it costs, you might quit, you might give up. So you gotta go in knowing that I don’t count the cost. Listen to me. You don’t count how many breaths you take. You don’t count it. You get to a point where you don’t count it. You just do whatever it takes to get whatever you want.
