What are you willing to give up in order to achieve your dreams?Posted on 20/07/2016 by Jess O'Connor
This is a big question, but try to put some thought into it, as your answer could lead to big success.
Whenever we think about achieving something, our focus tends to be on what we’re going to gain – not on what we might have to give up.
But ask any successful person and they will tell you they didn’t get to where they are today without making some sacrifices.
“The most important decision about your goals is not what you are willing to do to achieve them, but what you are willing to give up.” – Dave Ramsey.
There are only so many hours in the day, and when you start studying, you might have to give up a few things to stay on top of your assignments.
It’s all about making the best use of your time.
When Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of Eat, Pray, Love set out to be a writer, she gave up television so she could focus on her creative projects.
“What are you willing to give up, in order to become who you really need to be?” – Elizabeth Gilbert.
Grab a blank piece of paper and write down everything you spend your time doing. Next, highlight everything you would be willing to sacrifice in order to achieve your qualification.
This simple exercise will help you identify the things that you can say no to when life gets busy. You don’t need to give things up for good, or all the time – just when you’re behind on your studies.
For example, you might highlight things like television, going out with friends, or baking. Even though these are things you love, they won’t help you achieve your goals – and therefore they can wait until you’ve finished studying.
As hard as this sounds, we promise it will make it easier to reach your dreams.
