Being prosperous entails a lot of sacrifices and hard work put in to ensure that everything in the end comes out successful. There are a few things you have to sacrifice in order to be successful and prosperous, successful people know that in order to make it to the top, there are a few things you must cut off from your life especially when they are unproductive.
In as much as people say that family is everything, there are times family could be a deterrent to your success. Just so you know, not all family members are usually happy about success of another person, it doesn't matter if it is their own blood. There are times also when you have to detach from your family because you're trying to make a living and a life for yourself. Focus more on you and not on the financial status of your family especially when you know you're not in the right financial state to support them, build you first.
It's not as though successful people do not have friends, they do. The only difference between a successful person and any other random individual is the amount of friends kept. Successful people can proudly count all their friends on one hand, it never usually passes five or six. You must also learn to do away with unproductive company because that is one of the fastest ways people misuse their time and end up wallowing in poverty.
Sometimes, the things that you are most passionate about might not be productive financially. Not every hobby is meant to be kept. The ones that are not fetching you capital, income or even a little stipend need to be kept away. Instead, engage yourself in activities that build you mentally, physically, spiritually and financially.
In order to be successful, you must learn to sacrifice your time, there is a saying that time is money. If you want to make it in life, you have to understand that not everything requires your time and attention.
Successful people do not waste precious hours of the day sleeping. If you want to make it in life, you have to sacrifice a good chunk of your sleep into researching and making good business decisions.
