Finding solutions to problems are not always easy. In the process of digging and searching for answers you will learn. You will learn about what it takes to chase after a passion or path to your goals. You will become better.
To become better at what you are doing or intend to do, you will have to make some uncomfortable sacrifices. Rest assured that whatever pain you are going through, it will not last forever. The pain will one day go away. This is all part of the process of making you a stronger individual at the end. This idea reminds me of a body builder I saw training. The stretching and compressing of muscles; breaking down muscle fibres has a purpose to it. The athletes do this, with the ultimate goal of making their muscles bigger and stronger.
Now, that is an uncomfortable sacrifice the athletes put themselves through. I said uncomfortable sacrifices and not just sacrifices.
This is so, as some persons may be able to make a sacrifice, to do without something or to go for long periods of time without being involved with something they like.
Why is this so?
Because they can simply do without. They can go through an experience with little to no stress on themselves as such, what they sacrificed, they did not really need for their survival. And so, not really benefitting from the process. It is as though what they gave was out of their surplus, and not from a need to become greater or to expand themselves. What they did took little energy.
Because they had that surplus energy anyway.
Or possibly it was time they sacrificed. But that was not uncomfortable for them, because time is not an issue, they had time. For them, they were going to use time on something anyway and it just happened to be this activity.
For you to grow to your fullest capacity, there are times that your sacrifices will be uncomfortable.
NOTE: It should be noted that each person must evaluate their actions and see what is in the best interest for themselves and the people who depend on them. It will therefore be unwise to give up time and energy on a pursuit, that in the end will rob you of having good family relations, be endangering to your physical and mental health, and for some, moral wellbeing.
