Are you willing?

There are a lot of things going on in the world, and a lot of choices we make daily. Some things are simple,┬álike what route to take to our familiar work places, how to dress that morning, or even what to eat. There are variables, but in the end, they aren’t that difficult of decisions. Not when compared to huge decisions, like what to focus on as a career path, if you should spend money you don’t have on something to impress someone else, or any other high ticket time investment.

The question you should ask yourself is simple. It’s “are you willing”. Are you willing to make the sacrifices you need? Are you willing to hurt for your cause? Are you willing to leave friends and family behind while you carve out your niche in the world?

After you watch it, tell me what are you willing to do?
