Are YOU willing to the pay the price to get it?
Andrew, Qualk & Dutch, (WCCP The ROAR, 105.5 FM) discuss the process of how and why major decisions are made, like why 49ers linebacker Chris Borland would walk away from millions of dollars and a promising career after only one season.
Going into any situation, ALWAYS ask yourself, “What is the outcome I really want?” After you give yourself an answer, follow up with, “Am I willing to make the sacrifices to get it?”
I don’t know Chris Borland, but I admire his clarity and mental toughness to walk through the honest assessment process and then make a clear cut decision. ALL of us have the same option to make a choice, to go for the outcome we really want, once we have made the decision to pay the price to get it.
This honest assessment strategy is a handy tool to use in any context, whether it be dealing with relationships, career moves, fitness and nutrition, or buying a house or car. Before entering the decision making arena, always know before hand what outcome you REALLY want. Then calculate the price in physical, mental, emotional, social, and financial terms. Are you willing to pay that cost to get the outcome? If yes, then go for it. If not, then be prepared to settle for less.
