There is a price to be paid to attain financial well-being. Some people reach out to me requesting for financial guidance. When I tell them what is required to achieve what they want, they go quiet.
There are few good things which we get for free. Most of the good things in life require some sacrifice in the form of time, energy, pleasure, comfort and money.
To achieve success you have to sacrifice some time in doing something painful today. For example studying is difficult but it’s the only way to become an expert in your field.
You also need to exert some energy to get what you want. You can’t just relax your way to wealth. There is effort required to push you towards your goals.
You may have to give up some pleasures in the short-term to achieve success. You can’t be the person attending every social event in town if you want to build a successful career or business. There is a need to step out of the crowd if you don’t want to be an average person.
The journey to success is very discomforting and full of stress and anxiety. If you prefer comfort then aiming for great riches is not for you.
You will need to invest money in your education to gain the knowledge and skills to achieve financial well-being. Don’t expect free advisory from people who have already invested in themselves. For example I don’t do free financial advisory for people anymore. My time is too valuable to invest in people who are not willing to invest in themselves.
So the question is; are you willing to make the sacrifices necessary to achieve what you want?
