The price of success is paid now or later

Everything comes at a cost. In order to be successful in your chosen field you must sacrifice the things that you love the most.The earlier you start the better. As you mature ,you assume more responsibilities. You have to consider the well-being of your loved ones . But at some point ,during your journey to success,they may feel abandoned. A parent may miss some school plays or some football games  because they are busy pursuing a better life for their children. A girlfriend may miss her boyfriend’s birthday celebration because she is at a foreign university. Sacrifice and inconvenience are cousins of progress. Each small victory comes at a cost. Each course you pass at university is the result of sleepless nights. Successfully delivering your baby comes on the heels of months of discomfort. Ideally your end goal should be worth the difficulties that you endure. It is best practice to know why you are willing to subject yourself to such pain. This will be your comfort when the storms of life are raging. Those who are unsuccessful are too comfortable in life. They have no desire to leave their comfort zone.They are not willing to pay the price of success. The price of success may be your marriage,your relationship or your house. I can assure you that success takes notes of your sacrifices. Success interprets this as an invitation. Success follows the passionate, the diligent, the heartbroken. As the saying goes, after “freeness” is “Jesus”. Success is not free. It will avoid you if you do not pay your dues now or later .
