The prehistoric hunter didn’t get up in the morning, pop open the fridge and grab a little breakfast. If he wanted to eat, he went out and hunted it. If he didn’t make a kill, he did without. Most likely, his family did without as well.
Sun Tzu said, “In a desperate position, you must fight.” The hungry hunter had to fight for his food. If not, starvation. Death.
We have come a long ways from the ancient hunters. We no longer have to worry about not being able to eat if we didn’t make a kill. In many cases, you can still eat even if you don’t work.
When was the last time you have been hungry? Really hungry? All you can do is think about the next meal. You would do anything for it. When was the last time you have been hungry for something other than food? Were you really hungry? So hungry that you would do anything to feed that passion burning within you?
A hungry dog hunts best. A hungrier dog hunts even better. –Norman Ralph Augustine
When your hunger is sated, you become comfortable. The modern world we are living in today has evolved to allow us to be comfortable. Get too comfortable and you will become weak. You will lose the drive to go out and hunt for the feast that life has in store for you. It is time to get hungry. Become desperate in obtaining your goals. It is time to fight.
