The Journey is Worth It

When you're on the path to success...

If you’re serious about it…

Most of your time, effort, and energy will be spent in pursuit of whatever it is you're looking to accomplish.

That’s what it takes. Regardless of what the dumb fucks on the internet tell you.

This means you will have to consciously choose to pursue your goals instead of engaging in the activities the “normal people” get to enjoy.

I'm talking about the nights out...

The care-free weekends...

The week-long vacations...

...and all the other "fun times" you would normally partake in.

You can’t have both.

You are trading these things for the habits that will help you create a better life for yourself…

…and I promise you’re not good enough to make it without that trade.

Here is the thing to understand…

Although it can feel like a big sacrifice…

It is…

…but only if you choose to see it that way.

The truth is...

When you're getting something in return for what you're giving up...

You aren't sacrificing anything...

You're making an investment...

...and that investment is one which will pay massive dividends in the form of far better and more "fun" times in the future.

Those “normal people” are gonna pay a different price later in life.

Regardless … the longer you think of the success journey in terms of what you're sacrificing...

The more miserable you will feel.

Start thinking of the success journey as an investment.

This simple shift in your mindset will help you feel far happier along your journey.

That in itself is a nice return on investment.

The journey is long.

The journey is excruciating.

The journey is worth it and everything you are giving you will get back in spades.

Keep going.
