Sacrifice is one of the hardest things youll have to do in order to achieve success, but in order to get what you want out of life, youre going to have to give something up. For example, if you want to live a more rewarding spiritual life, one that pleases God, youll have to give up the things that will lead you down the wrong path .
Sacrifice is inevitablewhen I think of this concept, I think of my grandparents and parents, who forfeited personal time to raise a family. I think of the people in the armed forces, who risk their lives to protect this country. I think of teachers , who give up the chance at higher-paying careers to help all of us. I think of all the volunteers in the world, including men and women in the ministry, who donate their time to serve others and/or build them up spiritually. All of these people have made the world a better place.
Personally, Ive given up the chance to have a family so that I could more easily pursue my business goals and aspirations. I had to do this in order to see my dreams come to pass. As I get older and reflect on my life, I sure hope that Ill be able to say that the sacrifice was worth it, but I dont know. I simply have to trust that the opportunities I gave up werent as important or wouldnt have had as positive an impact as the things I chose to do.
