What’s your price tag?

Here’s another thoughtful quote I came across recently:

“Every worthwhile accomplishment has a price tag attached to it. The question is always whether you are willing to pay the price to attain it – in hard work, sacrifice, patience, faith, and endurance.” John C. Maxwell, Author.

Think about it? What do you want to achieve? What will it cost you – time, money, effort, sacrifice. Are you prepared to pay that price? Some people are willing to pay more than others; some would rather pay cash than effort, while others would rather put in the endurance and faith.

This can often be part of the reason why we don’t achieve a particular goal. Maybe we would ‘like’ something but are not prepared to pay the price for it. Keep this in mind next time you’re working towards something. Think about its true cost and whether you will be able to meet those obligations long term.
