“Hire fanatics. They are the only employees who always get things done.” Ed Koch, former Mayor of New York City
Obsession can a good thing. When you become obsessed with something, that is an indication that you are on the path to finding your main purpose in life. Obsession pushes you to accomplish your goals and realize your dreams. 64% of the self-made millionaires in my study were obsessed with achieving one, singular long-term goal. Obsession creates persistence and persistence was the #1 trait common among all of the self-made millionaire in my study. When you become a fanatic about something you are pursuing, obstacles no longer stand in your way. Mistakes and failure become learning experiences. No’s and rejection have little relevance. When you become a fanatic, success is inevitable.
