Anything cheaply gotten does not last. They do not have the tenacity to survive the test of time, opposition, insult or discouragement. Worthy things cost much. They come with a price which really cost much.
Excellence cost much; it cost one’s dedication, commitment and hard work. Innovation has its own cost too. It cost one’s creative thinking, trials and errors…
Whenever a thing presents itself so cheap at little or no cost, watch out for it. Danger seems to lurk around the corner of such. Regret also follows closely.Beware of wealth cheaply gotten at little or no risk; ponzi schemes and zero risk businesses.
Be cautious of rare privileges or “opportunities” that appears to be sudden and cost-free. Rare privileges or opportunities comes only to those who had practiced in the direction of such opportunity. We only prepare for opportunities and no alternative to that.
A sudden rise to the top at no cost is the most dangerous thing that can ever happen to any man. Because, when he rises, he rises to fall back again.
The vast human race doesn’t want to pay costly prices for what they desire. Many desire breakthrough. So many desire success. A lot desire greatness. But just few attain there desires. These are the few who pay prices to do things which every average man wouldn’t want to do.
Greatness has a price but failure is so cheap. Wealth has its own, but poverty is the cheapest.
“When you pay little, except little. When you pay much, expect much.”
To be be distinguished among multitude, you need to walk pass your comfort zone. Do that which will cost you much. Things which an average man will not want to do naturally, because it seems hard for him.
Your price for greatness might be a humble spirit to learn under a subordinate. Pay the price. It might cost much, but it will pay much. The price for a financial breakthrough in business might be the cost of taking a hard risk of investment. Pay the price.
Faith in itself involve taking risk.
Life has everything we desire to have. What we therefore get out of life is what we only invest into life.
