The Source of All Achievement

Today my roommate’s cat was treated to a new toy — a few catnip-soaked feathers on a line on a pole.

Pascal is, in no uncertain terms, a fat cat.

He’s got an ample belly that dangles charmingly almost to the floor. Sometimes, he struggles to jump even a couple feet up onto the couch.

But hang those catnip feathers high above his head and he becomes…

Air Jordan.

It made me think: when you want something enough, you are capable of remarkable feats. You will go farther than anyone thought you could.

DESIRE is the starting point of all achievement; not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything.
— Napoleon Hill

In other words, “How bad do you want it?”
