#12 Sacrifice


Anything in life is achievable, if you are willing to put in the work and make sacrifices to achieve your goals. You must first envision, through your imagination, what it is that you want and then think about how you will feel once you’ve achieved your goal.

Once you are certain on what you want, you must then plan the proper steps to take in order to achieve your goals. Your plan may not be the correct route to achieving your goals. Your plan may fail along your path but believe me; every time your plan fails you will be one step closer to achieving your goals.

Your failures will show you where your plan is faulted and you will be given the opportunity to find a better route to achieve your goals.

Unfortunately, this is easier said then done. Many things seem simple in theory but difficult in practice.

For example: the secret to having a healthy body and being fit is no secret at all. In order to have a healthy body that’s fit, you must eat healthy foods and workout. But as we can see in today’s society not everyone is healthy and fit. Some people don’t care to be while others wish that they were.

For those out there who wish to achieve their goals but for some reason can’t:

It doesn’t matter if you’re struggling to be healthy and fit or struggling for anything else. The only reason that you cannot achieve your goals is because you are not willing to sacrifice what you know you must.

In order to gain anything in this life, something must be sacrificed. Whether its your time, foods you like to eat or activities you must miss, something must be sacrificed if you intend to achieve any of your goals.

To become who or what you want to be in life:

  • You must first envision the final product.
  • You must decide on a plan to get there.
  • Then you must walk the path without veering off.
  • You must suffer when appropriate.
  • Then you must celebrate your achievements.

Discipline and dedication are two key elements needed to transform your goal into plans and your plans into achievements. You are both the marble and the sculptor. Envision what you want, then start chipping away.
