Paying The Price

“He who would accomplish little must sacrifice little; he who would accomplish much must sacrifice much”
James Allen

We all have dreams but there is a price for everything we want in life. If you want love and a happy marriage, you need be prepared to pay the price of commitment. If you want financial success, if you want a thriving career, you must be prepared to pay the price. Whatever you want in life, there is a price to pay to attain it.

When you want those six-pack abs, you have to do the early mornings at the gym, and the low carb meals. If you want the successful business, you have to put in the long hours, deal with the uncertain business decisions, and the possibility of failing several times to learn what you need to know to succeed.

If you find yourself wanting something month after month, year after year, yet nothing happens and you never get closer to it, then maybe what you actually want is just an idealisation, a fantasy, and a false promise.

Maybe you do not really want it at all, if you are not willing to do the work that is necessary to achieve it.

List the things you truly want in order of importance.

Ask yourself what you need to fore-go to achieve that goal; determine the price you have to pay ‘is it worth it’? If it is, go to the next step:

Commit fully to achieving the goal. This is time for action.

Enjoy the rewards of paying the price.

“A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done.”
Vince Lombardi
