Now you might be thinking that this doesn’t sound like me. You might be think Mrs Watts, why are you being so pessimistic.

But I actually think this is a highly liberating way of thinking about things. The reason why is because everything you do in life involves some kind of sacrifice in one way or another. Your ultimate job is to decide what kind of sacrifices you are willing and going to make.

If you want to have a 7-figure accounting firm and have exponential growth, but you don’t see marketing or sales as something you are willing to invest in, then you will ultimately fail.

If you want to be a triathlon winner, but you are not willing to give up booze and pizza you will ultimately fail.

If you want to be a hot-shot lawyer but don’t want to work 80 hour weeks, then it’s bad news for you.

Which leaves the question, what are you willing to suck up, even though you don’t like it or don’t want to do it?

Anyone who achieves anything has to do something they don’t want to do.
