Know what you want.

Not what your neighbor wants, not what your parents want, not what your partner, spouse, or best friend wants — what you want.

Go hard for it.

Once you identify what you want, don’t stop until you get it. There’s a saying out there, “Passion is knowing what you want, and never stopping until you have it.”

Be persistent.

Like the widow from the ancient parable, you have to be actively persistent.
