What are you willing to give up in order to achieve that?

 

We have all heard the old saying that there are no free lunches, right? Well, that is so true that it could have been one of the Ten Commandments. In order to receive anything we must be willing to give something and the amount that we receive is directly proportionate to that which we are willing to give - be it material things or time.

 

For most of us, the most affordable thing to give up is some of our time. Now, I know, I hear you saying, "But I don't have any free time to give up." Well, we all find time for the things we really want to do, don't we? Most of us spend at least a couple of hours a day watching television. If we cut out our television watching for one year and then went back to watching again, the same things will still be going on. The only changes will probably be dates and names. It's usually too depressing to do us any good anyway.
