A want for drive...or a better calendar

Having gone through a recent health almost-crisis (one where the words cancer and tumor were both mentioned) I find that I am wanting to view the world differently.  I say 'want' because really, I'm not quite there yet.  I have the desire to be a person who knows her goals, maintains her focus and accomplishes great things that leave everyone else wondering just how she manages to do it.  I guess this is something I have wanted for a long time, but recent events just bring it back into the picture.  I want the prize and I want to be willing to do whatever it takes to get it.

I have this friend who I admire greatly and one of the things I admire most is his drive.  He seems to have this ability to stay on track without distraction.  He is able to put in whatever hours are needed, even when he is exhausted.  There are times I won't hear from him for days because he is working, always working and he loves what he does.  He is willing to do the work because the result at the end is so fulfilling.  (I not only admire this in him, but I find it intoxicatingly attractive... it is such an appealing quality in a person don't you think?)  

I think about all I want to do right now:  finish school, make my new business endeavor a success, excel at work.  create through writing, dance and visual art, become financially stable and make myself beautiful inside and out.  I want to know if accomplishing this is too much to ask from the universe and myself.  I want to be greedy and have it all.

Am I willing to make the sacrifices I need to in order to do all of this?  I want to be.
