Success is not achieved overnight. It’s a by-product of hard work, blood, sweat and tears. If you want something you simply have to put work for it. You will not gain something from nothing. The phrase by Charles O. Finley, “Sweat plus Sacrifice equals Success” is just another way of saying “No Pain, No Gain”.
Sweat signifies the hard work and efforts we put in achieving our aims and aspirations. Ask yourself when did you try hard? Success is not earned, it’s rented and the rent is due everyday. Once you embrace the idea that success is only rented, you can take great pride and joy in the fact that, by doing the seemingly mundane or hard work, you are paying the rent for success. This should be an empowering and motivating concept that drives you to live an amazing life.
Your levels of sacrifice directly determine your level of success. Are you willing to sacrifice today to get the results you want in future? If you’re not willing to sacrifice your pride, comfort or security, you will never achieve your highest level of success. There are a plethora of examples ranging from M.K. Gandhi to Abraham Lincoln. Amongst all these, the Indian Army are one of the evident heroes.
Sweat and sacrifice are the two major components of success. We must not forget that regardless of whatever we’ve dreamed of, the person who you see in the mirror must go on the road of success even if it requires you to live for a day. Sacrifice and effort can be heavy burdens to bear, but they are the beginning of the budding wings that will eventually grow so you can soar to new heights.
Wake up your sleeping youth & go.
