Everybody wants to ride the bus, but don't wanna pay the toll.

When you want to succeed as much as you want to take your next breath, only THEN will you be successful.  Ask yourself today.. Am I willing to miss sleep for it? Am I willing to tell bae I can't hang out because you have to prepare for it? Am I willing to budget and/or invest in it?  At the end of the day, you have to go after success just as desperately as you would your next breath.
