How much are you really willing to give up for the sake of your goals, dreams and success? Do you want to be successful as much as to have the judgement to know what things need to be put aside for a while? Or do you just like the idea of success?
Author Thuy Yau points out 8 things successful people know they need to sacrifice:
Time management is crucial. Ever felt like a day is not enough to get through with everything you need to do? If you have, you should know that it’s not about using all the time but using it correctly to get the best out of it.
We all have the same 24 hours and we all have the opportunity to use our time wisely. When we sacrifice time, we’re prioritizing a certain task over another one. That task and all the others we accomplish – are the key to our success.
Successful people have to deal with instability, financial or otherwise, and their life can feel like a rollercoaster. But the good news is, roller coasters go down but they also come back up. If we don’t risk instability, we’re giving up the chance to make our lives better.
When we are determined to succeed, we have to make changes in our personal lives – in our friendships and our relationships. It’s not about neglecting your loved ones – it’s about working around your personal life. You will need to learn how to say “no” and decline some invitations because you can’t please everyone and sabotage your own goals. The good news is, once you have accomplished your goals or dreams, you will probably have plenty of time to give and share again.
Sometimes, no matter how productive you are during the day, you need those extra hours at night. Without those extra periods of peace and quiet, you may not be able to get everything done. For those wanting to achieve success, the rewarding feeling they get when they’ve accomplished their task always makes the reduced amount of sleep worth it.
We may not be able to put our full attention into our physical, mental and emotional health but we have to be aware of when our body is being overworked. Successful people may start to neglect parts of their life in order to improve other parts of their life. We start to eat less healthy, do less exercise or maybe reduce it to none at all. Nevertheless, you should remember that this sacrifice as well as the others, is only temporary.
Busyness can keep you away from peace and you might feel your life is a bit hectic. But then again, successful people know that it’s not a condition that will last forever. As well as you are aware that at the moment you don’t have those minutes to take a breath and slow down, you have to be aware as well that’s temporary and once you have achieved your goals you will have plenty of time to sit back and relax.
Working hard towards our big goals in life was never meant to be easy. These goals and aspirations for the future are meant to test us, challenge us, and help us to realize how badly we really want them.
We all have the temptation of choosing the easier option. And it’s normal to feel that way. When you think about it there are so many things that each of us wants right now. Things that might encourage us to procrastinate when we really shouldn’t. We might want to do something simple like check our Facebook feed. We might want to do something more significant like buy a new car. But the question is – what is most important to us? We have to make the choice between our immediate desires and the needs that will propel our dreams forward.Complete article 8 Things Successful People Sacrifice For Their Success By Thuy Yau
