Here’s a bit of wisdom that everyone already knows: sacrifice is the price we pay to achieve success.
Think about this:
|If we want to:||We sacrifice our:|
|Earn a degree||Free time in order to study|
|Lose weight and get in shape||Desire to eat anything we want and to remain sedentary|
|Be in a committed relationship||Right to have it our way all the time, because there is now someone else’s input to consider.|
|Become debt free||Desire to take expensive vacations and buy whatever we want|
|Succeed in a chose career field||Time in order acquire and continuously hone our skills|
|Raise children||The list is endless!|
The attainment of any worthy goal is proceeded by sacrifices. To be ignorant of this fact will lead to frustration and scant progress as we pursue our goals. That’s why it’s a good idea to know the price to be paid before we start on a goal.
It’s also good to understand that, if we’re not willing go make the required sacrifice, we should probably adjust our goals accordingly.
