Everything in life has a price.
Behind every great success is a story or stories of learning, training, practice, discipline, sacrifice, failures, mistakes etc.
To get the life you want, you have to be willing to pay the price for it.
Maybe that price is pursuing one single activity while putting everything else in your life on hold.
Maybe it’s investing all of your own personal wealth or savings.
Maybe it’s the willingness to walk away from the safety of your current situation.
Maybe it is delaying gratification and enjoyment in certain areas of your life.
But though many things are typically required to reach a successful outcome, the willingness to do what’s required adds that extra dimension to the mix that helps you persevere in the face of overwhelming challenges, setbacks, pain, and even personal injury.
Be willing to go through the pain today for tomorrow’s enjoyment.
Pain is Temporary…the Benefits Last Forever.
When you’re not practicing, learning, or developing yourself, someone somewhere is. And when the two of you meet, given roughly equal ability, he will win.
It’s not the will to win that matters—everyone has that.
It’s the will to prepare to win that matters.

Part of paying the price is the willingness to do whatever it takes to get the job done. It comes from a declaration that you are going to get it done no matter what it takes, no matter how long it takes, no matter what comes up. It’s a done deal.
You are responsible for the outcome of your life.
And you have to determine what sacrifices you need yo make, what price you need to pay to get your desired life.
Are you willing to pay the price for your success?
