If you don’t sacrifice for what you want, what you want becomes the sacrifice.

I believe you can have everything you want in life; you just have to work for it. I manage to accomplish everything I need to each week even if that means some days I have to double up to get to done.

I like to think of choices as prioritizing vs sacrificing. I do believe we make choices everyday on how we will spend our time and energy. Some things won’t get done if we are prioritizing the things aligned with our mission and goals.

GM, love the sacrifice quote. I do find it challenging to manage choices for the things I want. I am working hard on a way to fig this kn bug you can’t do everything; so this will require eliminating ‘ time wasters’.

The word sacrifice implies we are giving something up, meaning it is all up to perspective. I think sacrifice is needed because for everything you do, you are giving something else up or putting off for later. It just comes down to whether you feel like it is a sacrifice. For example, as a person who LOVES basketball, I don’t think of it as a sacrifice for me to give up going to a party, or playing video games, or hanging out with friend in favor of training. Others might feel differently.

Anyway, I do see a need for sacrifice as without giving anything up, you won’t get anything in return. The best at their craft have to ‘sacrifice’ a lot to be the best and that is what makes them the best.

Also, I don’t think that it is too challenging to manage my choices because I am clear in what I want to get done. I want to be the best basketball player I can be, and anything that stands in that way will be avoided or confronted. I have a dream and I am really serious about it, so it makes it easy for things to fit in as every decision I make reflects on that choice I have made and dream that I have.

There is 1000% a need for sacrifice in life. This message hit home as I am dealing with a HUGE sacrifice right now in life and the lessons that are going to come out of it are going to be sooooooo amazing. I have ABSOLUTELY NOT figured out a way to fit everything in my life lol. I believe that the beautiful thing about life is you never get to a point where everything finally fits. You are always looking to improve, and sacrifice is needed for that. I like to think that without the sacrifice, your TRUE goal will NOT be achieved.

I do see the need in sacrifice. I feel as though in order to achieve your goals you can’t always go out or do the funner things in life. Especially if it takes away from your goals and what you need to do. For me I don’t find it challenging to manage choices for the things I want because I know that in the end I’m doing it to be somewhere I want to be in the future.

You do need sacrifice in order to be great. It was challenging but I’ve figured it out.
