“I want it all – I want it all – I want it all and I want it now” – Queen
Doesn’t everyone want it all and now?
But what are you willing to give up? What are you willing to sacrifice? When I was first asked this question by a coach many years ago, it surprised me. I hadn’t thought about giving anything up. Typically, our schedules are full with work, family, and life. We often don’t think that we have to give something up to add something to our lives but we do.
Let’s say you want to build a business on the side of your normal job, that may mean giving up the evenings or weekends to do it. What would you normally have been doing? Perhaps you were out for dinner with friends some nights, working out at your favourite gym class, watching movies with your partner, or just vegging on the sofa after a long day – would you be willing to give some of these things up?
It could also mean sacrificing sleep in the morning, getting up earlier instead of enjoying a lazy lie-in. Then again, it might help you realise where your time is going and you can happily give up scrolling through social media, commute time, or something else that doesn’t serve you.
So to pursue your dreams and create the future you want, what are you willing to give up?
