Are you willing to sacrifice who you are for what you want to become?

I won't lie to you, more than once in life I've felt like I've arrived. Owning my own business, staff working for me, respect from people I've never met, etc etc etc #IfYouKnowYouKnow

But it wasn't enough.

It either didn't last or I intentionally blow it up. I was comfortable and I convinced myself I didn't have to keep pushing... but in my heart, I knew there was still more, so I started over, again and again.

Sacrifice = an act of giving up something valued for the sake of something else regarded as more important or worthy.

I've NEVER seen success work without sacrifice. Its just one of those universal laws, you can either use it to your advantage or you suffer consequences of violating it.

Only you know what you need to sacrifice in your life to accomplish your goals. Money, comfort, sleep, relationships, "clout", time, the list is infinite and its different for each of us. But what I can tell you is it will cost you, you just need to decide if its worth it.

My advice, don't leave this life with regrets. Neither because you didn't give it your all or because you sacrificed too much in the process. Find the balance. That's what #PracticalDreaming is really about.

I know it's not easy, but trust me, you got this.
