The human isn’t unlike the jaguar — when she has plenty to eat it’s difficult to stay hungry.
Reaching a modest level of success is her first fight. But, it’s after holding success in her hands that she is faced with a larger much scarier foe.
Her fight becomes one against complacency — it’s an inner battle where she must determine how she can stay hungry when she is already full.
One way to maintain this hunger is through artificial constraints.
If she makes $100,000 a year, she can start stuffing 50%-75% of it in the mattress — forcing herself to live on less.
If she has made all the money she will ever want to make and knows she can feed herself for a lifetime, she can ask herself how she can feed others? That’s a new (nearly impossible) challenge that will leave her forever hungry… for there is never enough food to go around.
