Why You Can't Have It All

Too many times in our lives, we have been lied to. We’ve been told over and over that we can have it all. The reality is we can’t have it all. No one understands that you have to sacrifice to get what you need. We don’t understand that even if you have it all, you have to sacrifice something to get there.


I’ve learned that in order for me to achieve greatness, I have to sacrifice things and that I can’t have it all. I can’t hangout with friends, be active in the gym, watch TV all of the time, and be able to get all of my work and goals accomplished. 


There’s no way I can be in a relationship with a woman, have a full-time job, and work toward my goals. I’m going to sacrifice something because there isn’t enough time in a day to get everything done. So...I sacrifice having a girlfriend, work 4 days a week and spend the other three working out and dedicating myself to my goals.


Somewhere along the lines, you have to mentally focus on 2 to 3 things that are most important to you. I’ve come to understand that I can’t have it all without sacrificing something. I’ve written about this in other blogs and spoken about it on my podcast. 

We have to understand that the saying, “You can have it all,” is not necessarily reality and that you’re going to sacrifice something to achieve or accomplish another. The name of the game is time management and how you allocate your time to various things. 


That’s my blog for today, be good everyone and go accomplish your goals!
