The number one reason why you are not successful is because you have not made the right commitment. You may have set goals and acted on them to achieve your success. But have you given yourself permission to be completely obsessed?
Our society has taught us that obsession is a bad thing. The obsession is often used with negative things habits like drug abuse and in some sort of weird perversion. However, if you look back through history, every single person that we remember to this day was obsessed with whatever their mission was in life.
Guys like Van Gogh or Leonardo Da Vinci would be set up for failure in todays society. The second a therapist analyzed one of these guys, they would be prescribed all kinds of drugs for ADD, ADHD, OCD, and every other acronym you can think of.
