We must make sacrifices to achieve our goals, there is no way around that. Some goals require more than sacrifices than others though, I know that from experience.
How do you think Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and so many others achieved so much success?
If you are not willing to make the necessary adjustments to get where you want in life, you may never get there and will live in regrets, which will make you a sick and angry person at the end.
Some of these pioneers, amazing unique high achievers made a lot of sacrifices that I am pretty sure they regretted, the acquired their dreams but at what price. It’s up to the individual to access their life and decide what they are willing to sacrifice for what they want.
What are you willing to sacrifice something for success? Are you willing to get your hands dirty enough?
So what is success? Success is some type of goal to be accomplished, some type of purpose. Success is something some of us fight for every single day. Success is the attainment of that thing that makes you happy at the end. Keep in mind that it’s not the thing that makes you happy but the attainment of it.
Material things don’t give us permanent happy happiness, I found out the hard way. I remember when I was younger when I acquired some material things that I really wanted, I would later feel empty. This happened over and over again until I realized; I had it all wrong.
We must be happy in the process of the attainment of success, and of course at the end when we accomplish whatever goals, or dreams we have. I see a lot of people being miserable in the process of the attainment of their dreams. Many have sleepless nights, no hunger, stressed out, angry, frustrated, and even depressed because things are not the way they want yet.
Why not enjoy the whole process of life? Why instead of not being happy for not having success, get happy for the chance you have to attain it. Why not be happy because you still have a chance of being successful at your goals and dreams, no matter what they are. As long as there is life, there is hope.
Enjoy the process but decide on your sacrifice, whatever that it is. For must of us, it is time, time with our family, friends, hobbies, tv, etc.
Start a new day today, and be happy because you have one more chance at life, one more chance to get what you want, whatever that is. You have control in what direction you want to go, so make a decision on your sacrifice, get your hands dirty, and take action now.
