During your journey to greater success, you will encounter roadblocks, hardships and challenges. There will be times when you will want to quit, give up, and go back to doing something else. The one quality that will guarantee your success is the willingness to stick with it, to see it through to the end and to refuse to settle for anything less than your dream.

Achieving goals and dreams usually requires some level of sacrifice. It might mean putting everything in life on hold in favor of working toward your dreams, investing all of your savings, or giving up a few hours of sleep each night. Many people proclaim to want to achieve their goals, yet are unwilling to pay the price it takes to make their dreams a reality.
