Success requires Sacrifice

Success requires Sacrifice

In life we all have to sacrifice something to get something  great or go somewhere.

You either sacrifice your time, love, relationship,money,loved possession like car,house or clothing. This seems unfair most of the time but it’s all worth it in the end.

That’s how success is –in order to get it,you sacrifice. Many entrepreneurs,teachers and life changers sacrificed so many things to get where they are.

Sometimes sacrificing for success comes at someone’s expense. Many people have lost their loved ones along the way even I had to loose my mom in order to discover my true calling in life. Now I give much of me in everything that I do than I did before because that’s what I have to do in order to get to my success destination.

Success isn’t measured by money, cars, property and accolades one has, it is measured by sweat, tears, challenges, sacrifices and victories one has to go through and success isn’t about YOU alone -it’s about the people you positively impact along the journey. Success is about hard dirty work not about inheritance. One creates their own success and legacy they don’t just acquire it without working for it. Rich or poor, we all have to dig up dirt or get dirty in order for us to get cleaned up. No man or woman has ever said that success is smooth sailing, even a ship sailing at the sea has to face challenges like heavy winds and rains. In war, some have to die, others get injured so that victory may prevail .

A great business man once said that, “One doesn’t wake up in the morning and be successful ; you have to work hard for it”.

Sir Richard Branson sacrificed school so he can start a well renowned Virgin Active business, Tata Nelson Mandela sacrificed his family and time in prison so that he can become the first black president of a democratic South Africa and Steve Bantu Biko sacrificed his life so that his Black Power legacy may live on until today. You work hard and sacrifice for something in order to get it ; you don’t just wait for God to bless you without taking action.

God blesses those who are able to take action in order to change their current situations. Be in charge of YOUR life and be the change you want; stop blaming and complaining. The time and energy you’re wasting on complaining and blaming ,is the time and energy you should  be using to finish what you started or starting what you want to finish. So start something great because you are capable of doing such; it doesn’t matter if someone says you can’t, as long as you know your capabilities and truth then you can do it. Action and Sacrifice are the Genesis of Success.

So I say, work on it, earn it,invest in it,research about it and sacrifice for it then you will surely get it.

    Wow this is an amazing articles, It’s like you are talking to me especially the part where it says “You either sacrifice your time, love, relationship,money,loved possession like car,house or clothing. This seems unfair most of the time but it’s all worth it in the end.”. So many young people don’t want to invest their time and make sacrifices so that they can achieve their dreams. Thank you So much Noluvuyo Soyaya for the wonderful article. We hope to read another one soon.
