Hunger for Success

Guest Speaker and John Maxwell Coach, Agent Daniel Hofmeister shared this message recently and it’s worth a reshare – enjoy!

If you want to do anything worthwhile in your life, you got to be hungry.” —Les Brown

One of the wisest Kings that ever lived wrote: The appetite of the laborer motivates him; indeed, his hunger drives him on (Proverbs 16:26).

What will HUNGER do for your life and business?

1. Hunger will eliminate failure as an option

  • When you’re hungry you go all in and push all your chips to the center of the table.
  • Hunger causes you to burn your boats.
  • Agency Owner Beth Maddox puts it this way: There is No Plan B.

2. Hunger Drives Improvement

  • When you’re hungry, “good enough” isn’t enough.
  • Hunger leads to action, action leads to success.
  • Stop Snacking! Let those hunger pains push us a little harder to growth and creativity!

3. Hunger fuels solutions, not excuses

  • People change through desperation or inspiration” —Dr. A.R. Bernard
  • We have been given gifts and talents with the expectation that we will use them for the greater good of the world.
  • There are people who depend on each one of us.

4. Hunger is a Driver

  • Surround yourself with those who are hungry for success
  • Sit at the feet of your teachers/mentors – they have been where you are.
  • Sometimes we outgrow our mentors and need to find new ones to take us to the next level.

5. Hunger Focuses our Vision (not distracted by all the noise)

  • And there’s a lot of noise out there. Put your blinders on like a racehorse to eliminate distractions and stay focused on your goal!

So what makes you hungry? Your hunger for success might mean that you can:

  • Love unconditionally
  • Give generously
  • Forgive quickly
  • Spend quality time with the people most important to you

Let hunger be your motivator. We’ve got families to help and people to catch!

Let’s go get em!
