Goals: The Sacrifices We Make…


You have to fight to reach your dream. You have to sacrifice and work hard for it. ~Lionel Messi

When you want something good, you have to make a sacrifice. That’s the saying when I was growing up. No Compromise. I followed that advice when I was at the final stage of writing my research. Naturally, this course of studies came with a huge investment, one in which I decided to push full-fledged into.

Doing so I decided to go into it full-time. It was a huge sacrifice as I had to travel by plane and ground transport to interview leaders that headed top industries. I had to make myself available at their convenience. That said, my disposable income was low. I had to be on a budget. I bought only the essentials during that time. Being a shopper, that was no small feat…. (ladies can you tell)? As a huge ‘tell all’,  when I was finally done and decided to go shopping to get some things for graduation, there was a bank alert at the store when they ran my card. You see ‘technology’ as we know it, sensed a changed habit, which set off an alarm. I’ll never forget that day. I laughed long and hard.

I’m sharing this personal incident because I believe you can benefit. If there’s a goal that you would like to achieve, you too can do it. Make that sacrifice. Go after your dream. It will be hard as you progress, but with the right attitude backed by persistence, and hard work, you will make it.

What have you decided to achieve this year? Go ahead, plan it, and just do it.
