Success requires sacrifice. Are you willing to make the sacrifice to attain success? The sacrifices won’t be forever, but they must be made. Everyone who has achieved great levels of success has had to make choices in order to get there. Last week I asked how do you react to adversity. Today I want to discuss how
Sacrifice Is Necessary For Success
Anyone who desires success must make sacrifices. Life has entirely too many distractions that eat away at your time and focus. Today’s life is too fast paced, whether it’s family events, work functions, or any number of other constant demands that interfere with your progress. These distractions take many different forms and they exist constantly. The good thing is that many of these sacrifices are short-term.
Successful people talk of making sacrifices for a season. You have to be willing to make sacrifices in the beginning to build momentum towards your end goal. Once you reach a certain level of achievement, the momentum you’ve built starts to carry you forward with less dedicated effort on your part. That’s when you begin to have the ability to focus on the other areas that are important to you. The whole idea of achieving success is that you create time and ability to spend with those who are truly important to you doing what is truly important to you. But you can’t get there without making sacrifices.
Anybody who’s ever attained any significant level of success has been forced to make choices. Everyone has family and work distractions and other things they would rather be doing. The difference between those who are successful and everyone else is the successful make the necessary sacrifices to prevent the distractions from derailing their journey towards success. This is one area that’s non-negotiable. You have to choose what you’re going to focus on and how you’re going to spend your time. The good thing is, the choice is yours.
Choose wisely. Choosing to pursue success comes at a price, but the resulting freedoms are worth the sacrifices. You’ll end up with more time and ability to do the things that you love, but you may have to put your focus on other activities in the short-term. Make the sacrifices and pursue success, and you’ll be able to do anything you want to do. Until next time…
