Success means different things to different people but irrespective of the definition given to it by different people, success has more to do with fulfilling your purpose on earth. You can never climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pocket hence you will have to make lots of sacrifices even as you strive to be successful.
One of the reasons only a few people are successful in life is because many cannot pay the price and if you must be successful, you must be ready to let go of many things. If you want to be successful, some of the things you must sacrifice include;
This is a valuable resource we have but many people tend to waste it. Time lost can never be recovered back and that is why it must be judiciously used. The investment of time in doing valuable things will pay off and that is why you must never trivialize it. Instead of spending time playing video games, watching movies and chatting on social media, try to use that time in reading books, learning skills and doing things that will benefit you in the long run.
Intermediate pleasure is one of the things you must sacrifice if you want to be successful in life. The way humans crave pleasure has increased over the years, especially due to the rise of social media and that is why care must be taken in the use of things that give instant gratification. To be successful in life, you need to give up things such as imprudence with sex, alcohol, drugs, social media and other things that give you pleasure in a short while but can destroy you in the long term.
3. Comfort zone
Nothing great happens in the comfort zone and that is why you must step out of it if you want to achieve success. Taking risks is one of the most vital elements that lead to success. That is why many great people are risk-takers. Push yourself beyond your limits, take risks, do something you love and see how success will come your way.
