“Winning has a price and leadership has a price.” - Michael Jordan, The Last Dance
Behind any accomplishment is a series of sacrifices. I see this stand true within every accomplished individual, group, team, or business. The world loves to obsess over achievements and results, however, it tends to avoid the topic of sacrifices.
Learning about what people have sacrificed is more insightful than hearing about their accomplishments. The workouts, sleepless nights, isolation, plateaus, and countless failures are all apart of doing something great.
Next time you meet someone accomplished ask them this:
“What aspects of your life did you sacrifice in order to get y?”
I guarantee you will learn some amazing lessons.
