“For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.” Pele
There is no success without sacrifice. Everyone who has succeeded in life made sacrifices to get there. If you want to acquire a skill, develop yourself, start a new business, invest, buy a valuable item or make savings you must sacrifices. To succeed you must sacrifice some level of pleasure. Some things have to be dropped. Some relationships have to be built and some definitely have to go. No one got to the top of the ladder without a sacrifice. Every step to the top is a sacrifice.
Every action you take each day is a sacrifice. It is either you are sacrificing your tomorrow for today by doing nothing or not taking steps or you are sacrificing today for a better tomorrow.
Success is sweet. But remember, no pain no gain.
