5 Important Things Successful People SACRIFICE to ACHIEVE Greatness
4 min read
“Most people fail in life not because they aim too high and miss. No, most people fail in life because they aim too low and hit rock bottom, or others don’t aim at all. “
Famous people, like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs or Marc Zuckenberg, achieved greatness when they were younger. They left their mark in the world. Although, they started hustling in a different time, the formula for success remains the same.
Every entrepreneur wants to leave their mark, and succeed like Steve Jobs, but the question is: “Would you sacrifice what it takes to achieve that greatness?”
What is the price for greatness?
The sad part of achieving greatness is that you won’t have enough time to spend with your family, or even worse not have a family at all. This is something that you must address as fast as possible.
Never put yourself in a situation of regret. The more you struggle, the more time you waste. You can always use that time to be more productive. Plan your schedule and find time for your family.
Their support will mean a lot, and without it, you will be left to struggle. The road to success is paved with sacrifices. Never look back.
“The road to success is paved with sacrifices. Never look back.”
Remember the time you’ve slept eight hours or more? Try to forget about it as quickly as possible. Achieving your goals for greatness, won’t be an easy task and it might take all of your adult life.
You won’t sleep because you work late, no. It will be because you will stay late at night and ponder about your business. Great ideas come when the body is tired and the mind is worn out. At that moment, you will get a spark of creativity that may revolutionise your business.

Peace and quiet
The only time you get some peace and quiet will be when you sleep, sadly. As a manager, you will have less time to relax because the same thing happens every day.
You wake up, go to work, stay there till late and go home to sleep. Moreover, even at home, the time you have free, you will be either eating or taking a shower.
The sacrifices you make, will profit you in the future. In the end, when you achieve that greatness, at that moment, you will have a little more peace and quiet. Nonetheless, getting there will require a lot of sacrifices.
“In the end, when you achieve that greatness, at that moment, you will have a little more peace and quiet. “
