Find Out the Price You Have to Pay

I think there is a price to being alone, and there is a price to being in a relationship. It all depends on which price you want to pay – but none of them are free.
Lonny Price

Of course, if you don’t know what the price is, you can’t choose to pay it. Sometimes the first step is to investigate the steps that will be required to achieve your desired goal.
For example, many people—perhaps you—say they want to own a yacht. But have you ever researched how much money you would have to earn to buy one…or how much it costs to harbor the yacht in your local marina…or how much the monthly maintenance, fuel, insurance, and license cost?
You may need to research what costs others have had to pay to achieve dreams similar to yours. You might want to make a list of several people who have already done what you want to do and interview them about what sacrifices they had to make along the way. You may discover that some costs are more than you want to pay. You may not want to risk your health, your relationships, or your entire life savings for a certain goal. You have to weigh all of the factors. That dream job may not be worth your marriage, your kids, or a lack of balance in your life.
Only you can decide what is right for you and what price you are willing to pay. It may be that what you want doesn’t serve you in the long run. But if it does, find out what you need to do, and then set about doing it.
