We are all going to have to sacrifice at one point. We are all going to experience pain, loss and setbacks.
The question isn’t, how do we avoid sacrifice? Because it’s likely never going to go away.
The question is, what will make it worth it? What dream is worth realizing, what risk is worth accepting, what are you attempting that makes the sacrifice insignificant, the pain tolerable and the setbacks acceptable?
The hidden message within every sacrifice, is the simple yet magnificent truth: That your dreams are worth working for, that the thing you are striving to achieve is worth the trouble, that, whatever the outcome, you are worth it.
Sacrifice is the reminder. If we remember what is worth it.
