Reach for the Brass Ring. You deserve to acquire it as much as the next person. Don’t settle for less when it’s not really what you want. If you make sacrifices for others, don’t expect them to return the favor later on. Sometimes you need to say “no” in order to keep going on your journey to fulfill your own dreams. Just make sure you really know what it is you want.
If you make sacrifices do it because you want to, not because you feel obligated or pressured to do so. Setting expectations on others only sets them up to fail when they don’t follow through. And it creates disappointment in you, both for the sacrifice and for when they don’t follow through.
You’ve set your mission before you and you’re working on fulfilling it. Stick to the plan and the process you’ve laid out. Saying “no” now doesn’t mean you have to walk away. It doesn’t mean anything has to come to an end. It merely means that your focus needs to be on your goal at hand. If the other opportunities are meant to be, they will be there when they fit into your plan.
You can have more than one goal of course. You can work on multiple things at the same time. But only if it means you have time and resources to do so. Don’t sacrifice the ultimate ambition in order to have a secondary dream sooner than you planned. It may not be the best opportunity that you think it is.
How you view your needs and desires should take precedence over how others view them. Don’t let someone talk you into making their dream a reality at the sacrifice of your own. If they support you fully, they won’t ask you to give up something for them. Rather they’ll help find a way to have both so you can support each other in the here and now.
How you value yourself will set the stage for how others will value you and your needs. Put yourself second and others will put you beneath their needs and desires as well. Hold yourself in esteem and focus on your goals in order to provide space, time and resources later on for those you care about. Take time to balance your energies, thoughts and dreams. Shine the light on you and what’s best for your higher purpose to achieve your goals and work your mission. You deserve that much from yourself.
