Most of us desire success in every aspect of our lives. Whether it’s in our family life, career, business venture or just a goal we want to accomplish. However as we all know being “successful” or great at something takes a lot of sacrifices and dedication. A famous quote that was coined by Eric Thomas “You have to want to be successful as bad as you want to breathe”. This concept is easy to say but sometimes difficult to implement.
What are you Willing to Give Up?
Many times we have huge dreams, aspirations and goals but are not always willing to make the necessary sacrifices. Majority of us want to succeed but for those of us who have tried and failed in the past success might seem unattainable. Often times we begin to ask ourselves questions like “Why are other people achieving success and I continue to fail”. There can be many answers to this question, but one that I have experience during my own journey to success is mindset. This might seem like a simply and basic concept but without a mindset set towards greatness it will be hard to succeed.
Changing our Mindset
Changing our mindset is simply deciding what we’re willing to give up or sacrifice, to achieve the success we desire. Once we adopt a mindset that we are willing to do anything to attain success. To attain something we believe is of greater value, we have to alter our mindset to think and operate at a greater level. There’s a choice we all have to make it may be hanging out with friends who are negative and always try to drag us down with their negative thoughts. We may have to give up social media or TV to have more time to work towards our goals. We might have to give up sleep to stay up and master our craft. Whatever it may be once we decided to give it up we will be one step closer to our predestined success.
The major difference between mediocrity and attaining our fullest potential is our choices. The choices we make when we are at the crossroads of life can be life changing. At any major turning point in our life we may be required to make decisions that will determine how our futures turn out. However, there’s one thing you need to know if you want to achieve success and personal growth. It has nothing to do with the education you may need, the skills you must learn or the resources you have to pull through. The main question we have to ask ourselves is what are we willing to give up to be successful? Comment below & if you liked this post please share!
