Often you hear stories of the extraordinary ambition of many self-made millionaires from humble beginnings, which we marvel at in astonishment, as though we witnessed a black punter run onto the football field. However, this same ingenuity we’ve personally exemplified or witnessed our entire life, but only to a blind eye. The greatest creativity humanity has ever produced is the direct result of sexual motivation. The scent of the opposite sex can inspire a clown to act noble and a coward to attack like a warrior. So does the size of your… ambition or drive matter? Absolutely! This is the blueprint to prosper as an entrepreneur.
The stimulus of potential sex can motivate a person to make the impossible possible. For example, the story of the “innocent” telephone conversation, between a young man and woman who lived 3 hours apart (ex-roommate remains nameless). The new friends, on this evening, began their typical convo around 8 pm. The clock ticked into infinity as the topic progressed and matured. At next glance the small hand struck 11 pm, the immediate solution to their distance dilemma was solved – By Any Means Necessary. If it required the young man to beg, borrow or steal he was determine to reach his destination before sunrise.
Here are a few additional obstacles that stood between them: both parties had what I call “funny money” – the only car they had was a clunker and midnight was lurking in the shadows. More importantly, don’t forget the grueling 3 hour expedition.
The universal axiom states, “where there is a will there is a way”, was put into real-time action. As a result , the new couple was what I term… SEX-CESSFUL (feel free to borrow). In addition not only did the young man reach his destination before 2 am, but he arrived in 2 hours flat with a pocket full of dinero. This was accomplished by passion, focus, sacrifice and determination. Now imagine if you transferred these same principles into all your entrepreneurial endeavors or life. I’m positive you would be in a higher tax bracket by years’ end.
Take a minute to reflect on your own tales of innovation and creativity inspired by sexual motivation. In essence, this type of desire in business is what separates the movers and the shakers from the ordinary. Here are some key attributes:
TEMPORARY OBSESSION – Specifically, during the infancy of a relationship young men/women can be obsessive. All things being equal, who doesn’t appreciate attention from someone you have an attraction to as well. In small dosage, this is the secret ingredient. I emphasize the importance of obsession. In this state, the total energy put forth equates to a nano second in your reality. The only thing that matters is success.
INNOVATION – During our life’s journey, some of the most creative stories ever heard have been sexually motivated. How do you find “fun” money for a gorgeous date while in the middle of bankruptcy? How do you hustle up $1000 for a couples vacation while unemployed? How does a teenager girl convince her ‘detective’ parents that she’s spending the weekend with her “girlfriends” ? It’s simple. Failure is not an option, even if it means risking everything in the process.
PERSONAL SACRIFICE – Ever attempt to calculate how much time you have spent on the telephone in the beginning of a relationship. It probably would total weeks or months. Or the numerous friendships lost, as the only priority (for some) in life is their new love interest. I can go down a list of examples. Ultimately, we perceive all the sacrifices to be worth the investment during the process.
In conclusion the same passion exerted to become SEX-CESSFUL, apply into your entrepreneurial endeavors to be SUCCESSFUL. Try applying some temporary obsession, innovation and sacrifice to your next project and let me know the results.
