Have you ever wondered why there are so few wealthy people in our society compared to so many poor people? This is because success comes at a price, and only a select few can afford it. Nothing good comes easy in life, and if you want to be great, you must be willing to sacrifice and pay the price. What we should all be asking ourselves is: what are we giving up today in order to receive something tomorrow?
“You can't scale the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets,” says Arnold Schwarzenegger. Nobody on this planet does not aspire to be amazing. They are just concerned about the cost. I see men who have sacrificed a lot when I look at world changers like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk, Richard Branson, and other influential men.
One of the big issues facing this generation is that everyone wants to succeed but no one wants to pay the price. As a result, vices such as internet fraud, theft, and kidnapping are on the rise. Any achievement that isn't based on values will crumble, which is why it's important to stick to the rules in your search for riches.
There are certain things you must give up if you really want to be successful in life. Any of these elements are:
One of the most difficult sacrifices to make for success is the sacrifice of time. Your time is one of your most precious assets, and you must manage it carefully if you are to be effective. If you spend all of your time watching movies and playing video games, how do you expect to be successful? One of the generation's big issues is that everyone believes there is still time. God was kind enough to give everybody the same number of hours in the day, and what counts is how you use them. Spend your time reading books, learning new skills, and attending crucial meetings to see how good you can be.
If constant enjoyment is what motivates you, you will never succeed. Investing for a bright future is not easy at first, which is why so many people give up. Success comes only to those who are willing to forego immediate gratification in exchange for long-term fulfillment. If you want to be good, you must sacrifice things like drinking, substance abuse, imprudence with sex, and other vices for things like reading, learning skills, and self-development.
You must move outside of your comfort zone if you want to be effective. Nothing great happens in the comfort zone, which is why you must do all you can to get out of it. You can't hope to achieve success if you sleep for 16 hours a day. Just those who are willing to make a risky wager stand a chance of winning big. If you want to be good, you must face your fears, even if they make you uncomfortable.
Everyone can fly in the sky because it is so tall. Work hard, seek wisdom, and pray diligently to see if God will reward your efforts.
