This has nothing to do with photography, but everything to do with our everyday drive and motivation to achieve a goal. Im am at a point in life where looking at this I feel as though i got comfortable, and lost some of the drive I used to have while working towards a goal. It reminds me of my college basketball career. I was never the flashiest, fastest, strongest, most skilled player on the court. And every preseason new recruits will ask me, how come you are a starter? that always made me laugh because I never accepted being outworked. I used to tell the freshmen "there is a difference between: wanting to play, and wishing to play; I want to play, you wish to play..."
The bottom line is "how bad do you want it? (success)
