Thinking Out Loud ~ How Much are you Willing to Sacrifice?

Great Achievements come from Great Sacrifices

James Allen in his book, As a Man Thinketh, writes, “He who would accomplish little must sacrifice little; he who would achieve much must sacrifice much; he who would attain highly must sacrifice greatly.” P. 42

As a Man Thinketh is available online at under the Harvard Classics.

NOTE: Think of a time in your life when you achieved something you wanted so badly you could almost taste it. What did you sacrifice to achieve your goal? I felt this way about wanting to earn my doctorate. I had to maintain a full-time job to support my family and so my family and I sacrificed the time we normally spent together so I could achieve my goal. The sacrifice, as it was in my case, is often shared by those who are close to us. When we have a lofty goal, we have to ask ourselves, “How much and what am I willing to sacrifice to achieve this goal.” Great accomplishments come from great sacrifices.

What Kind of Friend Should You Be?

What kind of friend should you be? Have you ever thought about it? Have you thought about the what the word friend means to you? For many in our digital age a friend is an acquaintance on a social media platform. For some, a friend is someone they know by name and with whom they are somewhat familiar. Others understand the reciprocal nature of friendship. They understand friendship bonds two people together. These friends care deeply for each other and sacrifice to help each other.

Today’s Quote: It’s Never Easy – Don’t Quit

“Nothing really worth having is easy to get. The hard-fought battles, the goals won with sacrifice, are the ones that matter.” ~ Aisha Tyler

Ignite The Passion

How badly do you want your dream? Do you want it bad enough to sacrifice for it? Do you want it bad it enough, that it infiltrates your every thought? The greater the desire, the greater the commitment. If your dream is worthy of you, go for it. If achieving your dream will inspire others to chase their dreams, go for it. If your dream was born in your heart and screams to be shown the light, go for it! The following 3 minute YouTube video may light the fire to ignite your dream.

Be Ready For The Moment

I am psyched. Today is a new day. I have another chance and so do you. I don’t know if I’ll be successful in chasing my goals. I do know if I work hard, I have a chance. I will make myself ready for the moment, if and when it happens. Dare to challenge yourself to work hard, sacrifice for a worthy goal. Discipline yourself to put in the effort. You’ll never be disappointed. You won’t have regrets. And, if the moment happens, you’ll be ready. Enjoy the brief YouTube video starring Mark Wahlberg and the discipline he uses to stay in shape.

We Need Each Other

It’s a good feeling when we accomplish something for ourselves by ourselves. It’s an even better feeling when we selflessly help each other do something that alone we cannot do. It is at those times we recognize how much we need each other. We recognize life on our planet is a shared experience. We recognize that great things happen when we set aside our personal goals to contribute to a greater good. The following YouTube video is a wonderful example of a selfless act, cooperation, and contribution to a greater good.
