Desire = sacrifice: What “I want it” means

They say if you want something badly enough, you can get it. What they really mean is, if you’re willing to sacrifice enough other things to get it, you can get it.

Because on the way to getting it, you’ll inevitably be confronted with decisions. And those decisions will force you to prioritize. If you place other things higher on the priority scale, you’ll run into problems. But if you can consistently place one goal above everything else – and I do mean everything else – then you have a pretty good chance of getting it.

I guess what I’m saying is, don’t ask yourself if you want something badly enough. That’s usually not much help. A better question for you to consider is, what all am I willing to sacrifice to get it?
