I Just Realized 5 Great Sacrifices We Have to Make for Us to Be Filthy Rich

Published

Getting rich is as a hard as rocks. Besides having to work hard, persist, persevere, build discipline, and embrace patience, we also have to make enormous sacrifices for us to increase our chances of meeting massive financial success.

As I was reading the biographies of self-made millionaires, I realized that none of them became successful without sacrificing a thing or two. Therefore, whether we like it or not, we’ll have to make sacrifices on our journey to riches.

It also dawned on me that the more things we can sacrifice, the quicker we move towards financial success.

I pinpointed the main things I realized we have to sacrifice for us to be rich.

  1. Sleep

Sleep is sweet, and most of us will sleep forever if given a chance. However, to achieve financial success we must sacrifice sleep because the less we sleep, the more time we have to work on our projects.

When asked when he sleeps,50 Cent (Net worth 15 Million USD) revealed that sleep is for poor people because he spends most of his time working.

Moreover, Marissa Mayer (CEO of Yahoo), Donald Trump, and Jack Dorsey (Founder of Twitter) agree that part of their success is owed to sacrificing sleep.

  1. Time with Friends

Secondly, for us to be filthy rich, we have to sacrifice the time we spend with our friends – especially unsupportive friends – because when we are with our friends, we always gossip or remind ourselves about childhood memories. We talk and do many things that are not related to financial success.

We don’t realize that we’ll progress quicker if we use this valuable time to work on our business or cultivate the skills we need to climb the corporate ladder.

  1. Social Status

Most of us hold a social position that defines who we are in the society, and we are willing to die for it. Little do we know that for us to be wealthy, we must never care about our social status.

The journey to wealth requires humility because sometimes we’ll have to live a modest lifestyle so that we invest a large percentage of our income in our businesses.  Besides this, we might be forced to do odd jobs for us to find money to fund our projects.

Check out What rich people did that we never do

  1. Entertainment

Entertainment wastes a lot of our time.

For instance, we waste more than 6 hours on TV every day even though it provides zero benefits to us.

For us to be rich, we need to minimize the time we waste on entertainment and use a large part of our time to work our asses off.

  1. A Relaxed State of Mind

Most of us wish to have a relaxed state of mind. We want to be free from anxiety and stress. However, if we’re going to get rich, we must sacrifice having a relaxed state of mind because the journey to wealth is full of anxiety and stress.

We’ll always worry about whether we’ll make it or not. And we’ll also be stressed because most of the time, we’ll invest lots of money in projects which will fail. Besides this, we’ll meet millions of obstacles that will stress us to the point of giving up.

For this reason, we must be ready to sacrifice a relaxed state of mind and start embracing worry, anxiety, and stress if we want to be rich.

Concluding Remarks

In conclusion, getting rich is a tough job, because apart from the hard work, we’ll have to sacrifice lots of things. Many people give up after realizing that they’ll have to make huge sacrifices.

However, you and I are not many people. We are the next 1 percent because we have already decided to do whatever it takes. I always encourage myself to make both big and small sacrifices because I know that life is marvelous on the other side.

I hate an ordinary life, I’ve been on the cheering squad for long, it’s time I get in the game, play and get people cheer for me. Therefore, I’m ready to make as many sacrifices as possible, and I believe I will make it. If other people can be rich, why not me? I don’t see why.

Top 6 Reasons Most People Can’t Persevere on the Journey to Success

Published

on

Perseverance refers to the ability to work persistently towards one’s goals despite facing difficulties.

After studying successful people for five years, I realized they all persevered since they never gave up despite facing obstacles. Nothing stopped them from working towards their dreams.

Besides successful folks, we can also persevere but most people can’t because of the following reasons.

1.People Don’t Study Success

Studying success enlightens you that difficulties, failure, or discouragement are part of the journey hence enabling you to work in spite of their presence. Moreover, studying success shows you that only those who persist succeed hence motivating you to persevere.

Most people who never study success seldom persevere because they don’t’ understand the journey, and therefore, misinterpret difficulties. They believe difficulties are a sign of failure.

2.The Lack of Self-Confidence

Most people can’t persevere because they lack self-confidence. They doubt their abilities and skills and give up easily when they face obstacles.

Successful people persevered because they believed in themselves. They believed they could overcome obstacles and continued working towards their goals when obstacles arrived.

3.The Myth of Overnight Success

The myth of overnight success has resulted in the inability to persevere because it makes people think success comes easily. This myth has made aspirers believe that success arrives soon after they start working towards it. For this reason, most aspirers give up when they realize that they’ll have to work for a long period and overcome several difficulties before success arrives.

4.People focus on the Outcome

Most individuals can’t persevere because they focus on the outcome. It’s hard to persevere when you focus on the results because it usually takes long before we get the results we expect. People who persevere focus on the process instead of the results. They know they’ll get the results they want if they forget about them and work on improving their skills.

5.The Lack of Passion

People who hate their work seldom persevere because they focus on results and misinterpret difficulties. Furthermore, they easily get bored with their work hence making it difficult to work when they face obstacles. Conversely, passionate people persevere because they are obsessed with their work and perceive difficulty as a chance for growth.

6.Focusing on the Possibility of Failure

Focusing on the possibility of failure prevents people from persevering because it discourages them from working towards their goals when they face difficulties. It makes people think there’s no need to continue working because they might fail.

Most successful people focused on success: they believed they’ll succeed no matter what, and this belief motivated them to continue working in spite of discouragement.

Conclusion

It’s easier for most people to work when everything is going well. However, when the going gets tough most people get discouraged and give up. The ability to work when everything is going wrong sets successful people apart. We must, therefore, master the art of perseverance because perseverance will enable us to achieve whatever we want.

If you don’t give up you can’t fail.’ – Menna Vaan Praag, Successful Author

5 Powerful Reasons Why Passion is a Key to Success

Published

on

I once believed that we don’t need passion to succeed. However, when I started blogging, I realized that passion is a key to success. I noticed that my passion for blogging made me write articles consistently.

Besides this, my research on successful people enlightened me that successful people are passionate about their jobs. They work 24/7 because they enjoy and love their work.

These findings forced me to think deeply about the relationship between passion and success hence making me realize that passion leads to success because it:

1.Makes it Hard for You to Give Up

It will be hard for you to give up on something when you are passionate because you won’t care about the results. You’ll only care about doing your thing, and you’ll do it even when you don’t get the desired results. For instance, if you love singing, you’ll continue singing even when you only have 5 views on Youtube.

2.Makes You a Hard Worker

Passion makes you work more hours because it makes you obsessed with your work. You’ll want to work whenever you find time because you love your work. Besides this, when you are passionate, you’ll work long hours because you won’t be able to tell the difference between work and play. For you, working will be playing.

3.Changes Your Attitudes Towards Difficulties

People who aren’t passionate about their jobs have a negative attitude towards obstacles. They either see them as threats or messages from the universe that they’ll never succeed.

However, passionate people perceive obstacles as an opportunity for growth. They are always eager to overcome them, and they believe they’ll become better at their craft after overcoming obstacles.

4.Prevents You From Wasting Time

If you do what you love, you’ll be obsessed with work because you’ll be excited about it. For this reason, you’ll want to spend most of your time working, and you’ll avoid wasting time on useless activities such as gossiping or liking and commenting on Facebook posts all day.

5.Increases Focus

Passion leads to obsession, which breeds focus. Focus leads to success because it increases the quality of your work as it makes you more skilled and knowledgeable. Besides this, focus prevents you from making mistakes and breeds consistency hence increasing your chances of succeeding.

Conclusions

People who don’t like their jobs seldom succeed because they mostly focus on getting things done. Moreover, they never reach great heights because they usually lack the motivation to improve their skills. However, passionate people have high chances of succeeding because passion increases focus, motivates them to work hard, and changes their attitude towards difficulties. And, lastly, it makes them want to work all the time hence forcing them to avoid time wasting activities.
