Many people believe that if you follow your instincts, you will be destined for success. I believe a bit more firmly that our instincts exist to try to sabotage us. All our instincts care about are surviving long enough to replicate our DNA in the form of one or two kids, and then to vegetate on the couch and watch the national average of 6 hours of television per day. Our instincts don't care about our dreams, and they don't care about us achieving success. Humans are capable of a lot at their very best level, but they are also capable of unimaginable sloth and stupidity at their lowest level. Our instincts and body tell us to be the sloth, and it is the job of our brains to trick our instincts, and align them with our real goals.
No one is cut from a different cloth. What one man can do, any man can do. The only difference is that some people have more reference experience, and have mastered consistency. Mastering consistency is the key to success in life. You are your own worst enemy. You never have to work hard. You don't have to do anything. The only way you will ever achieve success is if you can hijack your brain into following YOUR dreams.
