Evaluate the Cost

To be successful at things that are important to you, sacrifices will have to be made. Losing weight
won't happen without a sacrifice in eating habits and time spent in exercise. Career advancement requires giving up personal time to focus on education and networking. Intentional family time decreases time invested in personal hobbies and at work. Saving for a new car will eliminate regular  disposable monthly income and impulse spending. Each important goal will have a corresponding cost that must be paid to see fulfillment.

Anything that we do of value will draw energy, focus, and resources from something else to be accomplished successfully. Before undertaking this endeavor be prepared for the cost that comes with it. It's incredibly discouraging to discover the unexpected high price of growth halfway through and even more deflating to find out you aren't willing to pay it.
