The sacrafices we make

I’d like to speak about a conversation I had with a friend in regards to making sacrafices for the sake of achieving a goal..

In speaking with a friend the other day, he claimed that he did whatever it took to achieve his goal.. no matter the circumstances he had to make.. he made sacrafices and sometimes difficult ones - whether that be to sacrafice time with his family, money lossed in investments, losing face, dignity and pride; he would do whatever it took to get to where he wanted to go.

I then questioned him; "what is your number one motive for making these sacrafices?" - he answered with one sentence.. -> "What else man.. longevity and delayed gratification"


We make these sacrafices in purpose of delayed gratification. We create a thought in our minds that in order for us to achieve a goal in which we set, we need to sacrafice many things.

What have you sacraficed for the sake of achieving your goal?
