Have you ever wondered why very few people are successful in our society compared to large number of poor people? This is because success has a cost and only the few people who can pay the price get there. Nothing good in life come easy and if you want to be great, you must set yourself aside amd pay the price. The critical question we should all be asking ourselves is, what are we losing today to gain something tomorrow?
Arnold Schwarzenegger will say ” you can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pocket”. There is nobody on earth who dosen’t want to be great. Its only the price that scare them. When i take a look at world changers like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerbeg, Elon Musk, Richard Branson and other successful men, i see men who have sacrified alot.
One of the major problem with this generation is that everybody wants to be successful but nobody wants to pay the price. That is why vices like internet fraud, robbery and kidnapping are skyrocketing. Any success that is not built on principles will crash and that is why it is very important to follow the real procedure in your quest for riches.
If you truly want to be great in life,there are some things you must sacrifice. Some of these things include;
The sacrifice of time is one of the greatest sacrifices to make for success. Your time is one of the most valuable asset you have and if you must be successful, you must use it wisely. How do you become successful if you spend all your time watching movies and playing games? One of the major problem with this generation is that everybody feels there is still time. God was fair enough to give everyone equal amount of hours in the day and how you use it is what matters. Spend you time reading books, learning skills, attending important meetings and see how you will become successful.
If constant pleasure is what drives you, then you cannot achieve success. Investment for a great future is not pleasurable in the beginning and that is why many people give up. Success only cones to those who can sacrifice short term pleasure for long term fulfillment. Sacrifice things like drinking of alcohol, abuse of drugs, imprudence with sex and other vices for things like reading, learning skills and self development if you want to be successful.
If you want to be successful, then you must step out of your comfort zone. Nothing great happens in the comfort zone and that is why you must try your best to escape it. You cannot sleep for 16 hours a day and expect success to come your way. Only those who take bold bet win big. If you must be successful, you have to face your fears even if it discomforts you.
The sky is big enough for everyone to fly. Work hard, desire for knowledge, pray well and see how God will crown your effort.
