MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY: Remembering Why We’re Making Sacrifices
We work, we grind, we hustle, we make moves, we put in long hours and for what? Why? Sure, you may know the answer but the bigger (or deeper) question is “do you understand why? If you do, then today’s post will only serve as confirmation of what you already know, and feel, as to why you’re making sacrifices that you make.

Let’s get the elephant out the room and start off by asking the question: what does sacrifice mean to you? Does it mean that you go without so that you can have later? Does it mean that you put others needs before you own? Or, more so, does it mean that you do it willingly vs. grudgingly? These are all valid questions that should justify your sacrifice and here’s why:
- A sacrifice should be done willingly – why? Because it’s for something that you want for yourself or someone else. No one can make you sacrifice. If you are going without it’s because you realize that in order to achieve the goal, it’s going to take being without for a season so that you can get the end result.
- It should be you giving up the lesser for the greater – Goals and dreams can’t be achieved when we continue to live and do as we have been. If we foresee a goal, especially if it’s a financial goal, then we may have to give up frivolous spending and incorporate a budget in order to achieve the goal. If could be you giving something up that’s distracting you or consuming too much of your time that you could be, otherwise, spending on building your business. Bottom line, you sacrificed short term pleasure for long term gain.
- It should be you being willing to go without so that others may have – if you’re building and growing your business to provide a better way of life for you and your family, then you’re doing what you do so that others may have. Perhaps it’s your business partners or your customers that you want to have them gain more so than yourself. In other words, you’re putting other people’s needs before your own. This alone is truly rewarding; especially when you know that what you’re doing or sharing will help them benefit in the end. That’s a true sacrifice!
Now that you’ve received confirmation on why you’re doing what you’re doing, make sure that when you make a sacrifice, your heart is pure and your intentions are clear. You can’t go wrong when your goal, and the level of sacrifice it will require, are aligned.
