Sacrifice is something most of us hate to do and I totally understand it because when sacrificing we either give up something we love or do something we hate and obviously no one wants that.
But the thing is we have to sacrifice
We have to sacrifice in other to be great
We have to sacrifice in other to be successful
We have to sacrifice in other to make history
We have to sacrifice in other to write our name on the sky.
Every human wants their names written on the sky, everyone wants to be successful and great but not everyone will.
Do you know why? Because not everyone is ready to sacrifice.
There are some of us who love to sleep more than anything else in the universe, we will sleep day time and night time while we keep telling ourselves that we really want to be successful, no that’s a lie because if we truly want to be successful then we will have the courage to sacrifice our sleep because we know that it is worth it, we will sacrifice our sleep and do more work and put in more effort so that tomorrow is better than today.
We put the alarm clock on and when the alarm alerts us that it’s time to get up and do something so that we can have what we want and desire then we annoyingly press the snooze button and then we talk about success.
There are some of us who love watching tv more than anything, Netflix is our best friend and because of this we can be with Netflix from morning to night without feeling tired and then we say that we want to be great, then we say that we want to change our lives like the way Oprah Winfrey, Steve Harvey, Daniel Craig etc changed their lives. Do you think they changed their lives by watching tv 24/7?
We say that we want to be successful then why is the tv still on? Why can’t we sacrifice our love for tv and concentrate more on doing that which will make us better in the future.
If you are using the tv to watch warren Buffet’s motivational video so that you can be inspired then that’s good.
If you are using the tv to watch Bill Gates success tips then great.
If you are using the tv to watch something productive which is going to help you on your path to success then that’s perfect but if you are using the tv to watch that which will not add value to you then you are wasting your time.
Some of us hate reading, we despise it, some even go to the point of saying that when they open a book they end up sleeping and I am telling you that’s not true, do you know why they sleep? They sleep because they have already put it in their mind that the moment they open a book they sleep and because of this whenever they open a book they sleep.
There’s nothing like reading, reading can help you in many ways than you can imagine, I do get the fact that some of us love reading more than others but if you don’t like reading then listen to motivational podcasts, go on Spotify or something and listen to motivational audios, listen to them when you wake up, listen to them when you are in the train, listen to them when you are in your car etc and believe me it will help you. I know you will rather listen to something else because motivational speeches seems boring to you and that is why we talk about sacrifice,sacrifice something you love to listening to and listen to that which you don’t love.
Some of us love spending hours on social media and doing things that add no value to us, if you spend some time on social media because you are trying to build your own personal brand, looking at motivational quotes and all of that then that’s good but if you are just there watching irrelevant things then you are wasting your time.
Even in eating we have to sacrifice, sacrificing our love for unhealthy food and start eating healthy foods, eating more of vegetables etc
We can spend hours on this topic but let me tell you that without sacrifice then there’s no success, every successful person today had to sacrifice something, so stop making excuses, get up, make the effort so that you can be success.
