Often when people think of the word sacrifice they think of having to give up something.
Having to lose out on something they want or enjoy. Sometimes they think of pain or suffering, sadness, and worry.
How about if you looked at sacrifice from another perspective and instead of looking at it as having to give up something, but instead think about it as drawing closer to something. You see, more often than not, we may have to give up temporary comfort and enjoyment to get long-term happiness and freedom. Sometimes we have to give up on bad habits so we can draw closer to good ones. For example, you may want good health and to lose weight, but you may have to reduce your calorie intake and do a little exercise. You may want to buy the house that you really want, but you need to give up some free time that you have to make extra money to help towards the deposit or simply cut back on non-essential items to recoup unnecessary spending.
What do you really want for your life financially and what sacrifices are you prepared to make to achieve what your heart desires. REMEMBER: the bigger the goal the bigger the sacrifice.
