How Bad Do You Want It? Become A Firefighter

How Bad Do You Want It? Become A Firefighter

Become a firefighter. An inspirational and true story about achieving great things.


It 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 are.” And so the guru said, “if you want to be on the same level I’m all in. I’ll meet you tomorrow at the beach at 4 AM.”


So the young man got there 4 AM. He all-ready to rock and roll, got on the suit — should’ve worn shorts. The old man grabs his hand and said “how bad you wanted success?” He said, “real bad.”


He [guru] said “ walk on out in the water.”


So he walks out into the water — watch this, when he walks out toward it goes waist-deep. So he’s like “this guy’s [guru] crazy!”


So he [guru] said, “come on there little brother. Walk out little brother.” Then he had it right around his throat here so his own head’s crazy.


[Guru] Said “come on out a little further” — came out little further right at his mouth. My man like “I’d like to go back here. This, God, isn’t fine.”


“But I thought you wanted to be successful?”, he [guru] said.


“I do!”


He [guru] said, “walk a little further.” He then dropped his head in — held him down, held him down. My man getting scratch. He holds him down!


Just before my man was about to pass out, he [guru] raised him up. He [guru] said, “I have a question for you.” He said “when you were underwater, what do you want to do?” ‘Said “I want to breathe.”


He [guru] told the guy, he said, “when you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe then you’ll be successful.”


I know. I mean I got asthma here today but if you ever had an asthma attack before you’re sure to breathe; sure to be shortness of breath — you wheezing. The only thing you try to do is get some air. You don’t care about no basketball game. You don’t care what’s on TV. You don’t care about nobody calling you. You don’t care about a party. The only you care about when you’re trying to breathe is to get some fresh air! That’s it! And when you get to the point where all you want to do is be successful as bad as you want to breathe then you’ll be successful!


And I’m here to tell you #1 — that most of you say that you want to be successful but you don’t want it bad. You just kind of want it. You don’t want it badder than you want a party. You don’t want it as much as you want to be cool. Most of you don’t want success as much as you want to sleep— something you love [to do]. Sleep more than you love success and I’m here to tell you today if you’re going to be successful you’ve got to be willing to give up sleep. You got to be willing to work off three hours of sleep— two hours! And if you really want to be successful, some days you will have to stay up three days in a row because if you go to sleep you might miss the opportunity to be successful. That’s how bad you want to win! You gotta be so successful so bad that you forget to eat.


Beyonce said once she was on the set doing her thing. Three days had gone by she forgot she didn’t eat and she was engaged. I never forget, I went 50cent was doing his movie. I’ll get him up research on 50 and 50 said that when he wasn’t doing the movie he was doing the soundtrack and they said “when do you sleep 50?” “Sleep?”, he said. “Sleep — sleep is for those people who are broke.


So I got an opportunity to make a dream become reality. Somebody came on in the other day crying. I said “look, 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!”


All men are created equal. Some work harder but I’m exactly where I want to be because I realised I got to commit my very being to this day. I gotta, I gotta feel it, breathe it, believe it and until you get there you’ll never be successful.


Once you get there, I guarantee you the world is yours so work hard and you can have whatever it is you want.
