QuickVid: Achievement Only Comes with Sacrifice

How much are you willing to sacrifice to achieve your dreams? How hard are you willing to work—how much sweat equity are you willing to put in? Are you prepared to fully and completely give your all?


Real achievement only comes at the price of real sacrifice. The video below is a demonstration of how the road to achievement usually works. Only a handful of people in the world are fortunate enough to start at the top. The rest of us have to push ourselves to start, and then push ourselves even harder to keep going until we make it to our desired place in life. There are no shortcuts, no cheat-sheets, and oftentimes no cheering section. Nevertheless, if we want it bad enough, we have to start somewhere. We must set all of our current conditions aside and strive to do whatever it takes to get to where we want to be. This is the only true way.


This video displays this life lesson in the form of boxing, but it can be applied to any goal or dream. As you watch it, think of something in your life that you want to achieve, and ask yourself if you are willing and prepared to endure the sacrifice that it will take to have it.



Achievement only comes with sacrifice; and with sacrifice, anything is possible.

This was great, Makeba! The post and the video was incredibly empowering. I have asked myself this very question several times here of late, “How badly do you this?” When we’re going after a dream or a goal, it sometimes seems that the path is polluted with distractions, as well as with distracting people. So we ought to constantly ask ourselves this question and others throughout our journey. If we’re honest with ourselves, we will be able to answer the question with the expectation that the journey itself will not be an easy one. Yet, with having to earn the… Read more »

Greetings: I’m so glad that you enjoyed the video and I’ll tell you: this video was very moving to me as well when I saw it for the first time. As I began to view it as an analogy and relate it to some things in my own life, it really did speak to the very core of me. You said it best when you stated that it can be so easy to get distracted by things, people, or conditions when working towards a goal.
