Do you take things seriously?
Let’s say you have 2 people who want to lose weight. One of them decides they will eat healthy so he can avoid doing exercise and the other wants to exercise so he can eat whatever he wants. Then there comes a 3rd person who is very motivated to lose weight so he decides to do both the diet and the exercise. Who will reach their would first? Of course the person that does both! That is the same thing that will happen for the person who wants to be successful. In their case they will have to read as many books as they can, talk to as many people as they can who have the experience he needs, and work very very hard to get there. Anyone that does just one or the other cannot go as fast as the one that is determined to reach their goal and does all that he can to get there.
