Whatever it takes... by Daniel Turner & Marc Lindsay

Do you have what it takes to be successful? Would you do whatever it took to be successful?

I sincerely hope that you answered "no" to that question.


Because you need to do whatever it takes, but you need to do it with honesty, with integrity, and with compassion.

Otherwise, if you wanted to make money, go sell drugs, who cares right? This is what separates the people with ethics, and those without.

Someone who is willing to do whatever it takes without consideration of ethics or the effects that it has on other people, is in my opinion the lowest of low of the human race. If you are willing to tread on another human being, to get what you want, then it is my opinion that you need to rethink your perspectives on life.

So what exactly do I mean when I say "Whatever it takes"?

What I'm saying is that you do what needs to be done, when it needs to be done, you don't wait, you don't delay, you don't make excuses, you take responsibility.

When opportunity arises you seize it with both hands and don't let go until you've driven it forward!

The best way to explain the principle, is actually to give you an analogy of a type of person.

When you picture in your mind someone from the Elite Special Forces, be it Navy Seals or S.A.S or whomever you choose, that attitude of 'I will make sure that my mission is successful no matter what' is what they embody, there is no quit, there is no fail, there is just do, and succeed.

The only additional to that analogy, is that you apply your ethics, morals, and honesty to it, you aren't in a war zone like they are, you are in life, you're life, and how you play it, dictates your end result.

I also need to give credit to someone here, because credit is definitely due, Brad Sugars was the guy that taught me this first, where he learned it from I don't know, but it is my belief, that it was from simple life, and business experience...the greatest teacher of all.

Go out there and do whatever it takes, with compassion, with honest, and with integrity.
