One of the most common reasons we fail to get what we want in life isn't because we lack motivation or resources. It's actually much simpler.
We fail to understand the cost.
If you want to lose weight and feel great, that often involves changing your diet and fitness habits.
If you want to get a raise, that often requires you putting in the work and getting uncomfortable.
If you want to write a book, you're going to need to push through that writers block.
If you aren't getting to where you want to go, chances are high you haven't agreed to the cost.
Figure out the cost and then pay the price. Simple, but difficult.
