What Have You Given Up For What You Want?


The discontinuation of something you value is not losing. Sometimes you have to make room for what you want to get out of life. So, although the thing you may have to give up is valuable to you, you may have to give it up for something greater to transpire in your life.

The important thing is this: to be ready at any moment to sacrifice what you are for what you could become.  -Charles Dickens

You can actually get what you want but to add something of value, you may have to give up something else that is also valuable to you, but you have to give up something. You have to decide what is valuable to you. For example, you may have to gave up lengthy conversations that are not helping your productivity or even sleep one less hour to get your task complete. Whatever it is you have to give up, making that sacrifice because it could be what helps you to get more out of life.
