Winners don’t sacrifice anything. They do exactly what they want, whenever they want.
Winners do not want to be doing anything else other than winning.
They don’t want to go to the movies, they don’t want to go to their kid’s birthday party, they don’t want to go out to Valentine’s day dinners.
They only want to concentrate on the one thing that makes them great.
It isn’t sacrifice if you want to be doing the thing you are doing.
Only losers sacrifice. And they sacrifice every single day.
Only a loser would rather be doing something else.
Only a loser goes into his 9-5 thinking it’s the only way to provide for himself or his family or that it’s what he has to do to get ahead.
So he sacrifices a whole lifetime.
And the game rewards the man who didn’t sacrifice. The game punishes the schlub who sacrifices because he’s playing by the rules.
Sacrifice is another word for ‘giving in’. Winners don’t give in and they don’t sacrifice. They ruthlessly avoid sacrifice. In a winners mind there is no such thing as giving in.
Think that over on Monday morning. Willy Winner was probably up at 5am ready to kill. Seth Sacrifice is pushing his snooze button for the 3rd time.
You’re the Lion.
Or you’re the sacrificial lamb.
Friend, you ain’t both.
