The price you will have to pay for your success

Tuesday - 03/03/2020 11:01
All things come at a price, you’ve probably already grasped that by now. You can achieve anything and get anything you want as long as you are keen to pay the price for it.
The price you will have to pay for your success
That is the only way to get what we want in the real world, we won’t get anything by wishing for it or just wanting it, a price is demanded and a price must be paid.
We all want to succeed. And for us to be successful we have to pay the price for it. We cannot avoid the fact that achieving any type of success demands something from us. Well, even the immensely talented and the most brilliant individuals among us need to pay the price in order to succeed, and sadly most of them have failed because they are not willing to pay the price.
‘The bigger the goal, the higher the price’ that is the unspoken rule that has been floating around for thousands of years. Shortcuts have been and can be taken, but shortcuts will rarely lead you to permanent success.
Shortcuts will not make you an extraordinary individual; they will not make you exceptional. Sometimes it is actually not what you achieve, but what you become along the way and who you help along the way, that makes it so rich and rewarding.
So what is the price that has to be paid to attain success?
Success asks for Commitment
Desire is the key to motivation, but its determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal — a commitment to excellence — that will enable you to attain the success you seek.
Staying committed to your goal means not allowing anything to distract or pull you from performing your objectives. Commitment entails that you become not only relentless in achieving your goals but that you also become the type of person that is capable of achieving your goals. You need to be committed to being extraordinary, to being courageous, to being disciplined, and to being accountable for your decisions and actions.
The level of success that you achieve will be in direct proportion to the depth of your commitment. It is that dedication and perseverance that you bring every day that will make all the difference in the end. You cannot achieve success without being committed.
Success demands Hard work
The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.
Hard work is synonymous with achievement. Anything that is worthwhile achieving in this world takes dedication and hard work.
There is work, and then there is HARD work. This means that you’re going to have to put in work that is above and beyond your normal capabilities in order for you to succeed. You’re going to have to push past your mental and physical limits over and over again. You will need to consistently do more than your competition over a very long period time.
We naturally crave for the easy method. We are always looking for the easy way, the easiest solution or the comfortable solution. But growth does not happen with the ‘easy way’, it does not happen in the comfort zone. Easy is not the price for success. If it was, don’t you think we would all be successful?
There is a reason why only a few ever achieve what they set out to do. And a big part of that reason is that ‘it is very hard’ to do so. To achieve success and greatness you are going to have to stretch your body and mind, you’re going to have to put in the hard work.
Success wants you to Sacrifice
Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice, and is never the result of selfishness. Everything that you have achieved up to this moment, you have made a certain sacrifice for it, even if you feel like you have not. Success requires some kind of sacrifice.
You will not gain something for nothing, that is not how the world works. In order to attain anything you want you are going to have to up something for it. For most things in the world, in order to acquire them money is what you are going to have to give up.
But for your personal success, you most likely will have to give up your greatest asset, your time. And in other instances you will have to combine the sacrifice of your time with things like; your relationships, your energy, your money etc.
You will also have to sacrifice who you are for who you desire to become — for who your “goal” requires you to become. Your goals will require you to shift how you think, what you believe, the habits you indulge in, and maybe even the values you live by.
Are you willing to experience short-term sacrifice in order to have a better long-term future?
Success requires you to Continuous learn
Those people who develop the ability to continuously acquire new and better forms of knowledge that they can apply to their work and to their lives will be the movers and shakers in our society for the indefinite future.
I always used to think my ‘education’ will stop at the end of my higher education journey, but I soon realised that you need to be constantly educating yourself in order to be successful at anything. The moment you leave school, is the moment when you start the type of learning that will set you up for your success in life.
You need to read books that will expand your mind from its former state. Most people rarely read more than one book in any given year, and I think that is not doing enough in terms of your personal education. The more you read, the more you realise that you know nothing and still have a lot to learn about your craft or life.
You have to constantly learn from your experiences and keep refining the process until you get it right. You need to learn from mentors and other people and seek their advice and input on your process.
Continuous learning is needed for your success; you can always reach higher heights as long as you are willing to learn. But you must be consistent at it. That is the price of success.
If you want to go from where you are to where you want to be you need to identify the price that needs to be paid, and the proceed to pay it. Everything has a price to pay. Are you willing to pay it?
