Have you ever wondered why so few people in our society are successful compared to the great number of poor people? This is because success comes at a price and few people can afford that price to get there.
Nothing good in life is easy and if you want to be great, you have to break up and pay the price. The crucial question we all have to ask ourselves is: what is missing today to get something tomorrow?
Arnold Schwarzenegger would say: "You can't climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets." There isn't a person in this world who doesn't want to be great. The only price that scares them. When I look at people who have changed in the world like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerbeg, Elon Musk, Richard Branson, and other successful people, I see people who have sacrificed a lot.
One of the main problems with this generation is that everyone wants to be successful, but no one wants to pay the price. That's why crimes like internet fraud, robbery and kidnapping have skyrocketed. Any success that is not based on principles will crumble. Therefore, it is very important to follow actual procedures in your quest for wealth.
If you want to be truly great at life, you have to give up a few things. Some of these include;
The sacrifice of time is one of the greatest sacrifices for success. Your time is one of the most valuable assets you have and if you want to be successful you need to use it wisely. How do you become successful when you spend all your time watching movies and games? One of the main problems of this generation is that everyone feels there is still time. God is honest enough to give everyone the same hours of the day, and how you use them matters. Take time to read books, learn skills, attend important meetings, and see how you will succeed.
If pleasure keeps pushing you, you cannot succeed. Investing in a bright future isn't fun at first because so many people give up. The cone of success is only for those who can sacrifice short-term pleasures for long-term performance. Give up things like alcohol, substance abuse, carelessness, and other vices for things like reading, study skills, and self-improvement if you want to be successful.
If you want to be successful, you have to get out of your comfort zone. Nothing big is going on in your comfort zone, so try to make the most of it.
You can't sleep 16 hours a day and expect success to come your way. Only those who are willing to bet will win big. If you have to be successful, you have to face your fears, even if they worry you.
The sky is big enough for everyone to fly. Work hard, be curious, pray well, and see God crown your efforts.
Thank you for reading.
