We tend to hear this glibly-spoken phrase a LOT, and usually during the international rugby season. The winning team (usually the All Blacks, but I’m not biased) will be the one with the most ‘hunger’, the most determination, motivation and desire.
‘Hunger’ is an intangible ingredient over and above skill, talent and experience. It can’t be bought or taught.
How much do you REALLY want to succeed/push through/win/triumph/overcome? What will it take for you to go that extra step?
This is not the hunger of a starving man, but rather the hunger of a man who is not satisfied with a ‘normal’ portion. It is the state of a man who wants more, and – therefore – seeks to go above and beyond mediocre to realise his goal.
So, I ask you, in your pursuits, work, relationships and dreams…how hungry are you?
