whatever it takes

The struggling you're in today is developing the strength you need tomorrow ─Robert Tew Click To Tweet

This quote from Robert Tew is my main reminder and lifeboat for those days of hard struggle…and yes…if you’re building your own path, you may know by now that those days are very frequent.

But don’t hate them, instead…honor those days, honor the struggle, because those days of struggle is what separate you from ordinary people, it’s what is going to help you to be wiser, humbler, patient, stronger and be able to build something big and meaningful.

If you give up at the first sign of struggle, you're not ready to be successful ─Kevin Hart Click To Tweet

There is a book from Online Business Guru Peng Joon titled Build a money machine where he suggests 3 ways of doing things…anything!, from learning how to play tennis, to build a business, being a parent or get a job.

The 3 ways are:

  1. Trying to do something – Where most of the people are, they’re constantly starting new things, but as soon as things get hard or challenging they quit and try something else.
  2. Doing your best – We have been trained from young to “do our best”, here is the thing, how do we know if we are doing our best based on our willingness or based on our capability?. “Do your best” can be a convenient excuse to not achieve something,  people tend to believe that if they failed…nothing happens as long as they gave their best.
  3. Whatever it takes – Understand that the path will be filled with struggles, challenges and obstacles. Honor that struggle, because those are the days where ordinary people give up. Do whatever it takes to reach your goal! (of course, as long as it’s legal, moral and ethical…)

If you are not getting results in your life, ask yourself:

Am I trying?

Am I doing my best?

Am I doing whatever it takes?

Be honest with yourself, you can cheat everyone out there, but you can’t cheat on yourself. Remember Albert Einstein’s quote: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”.

If you want to get different results, you will need to start from changing your mindset, change gears, be honest with yourself and the most important thing: stop making excuses.

Once you are there, once you change your mentality, things will start to happen…because there isn’t going to be any other option in your brain, the only option available will be to make things happen.


  • Stop being a quitter or an “I’m doing my best” girl, be willing to make things happen if you want to succeed. Period.
Stop living a life of 'doing your best' you never gonna get results 'doing your best', change your mindset and do whatever it takes Click To Tweet

Are you doing whatever it takes?. If not, Why? Be honest, take it seriously…is your life you’re talking about. Leave a comment and let me know!
