It will cost you to live your best life.

To make decisions with the long-term in mind.

To continually learn.

To remain disciplined and focused.

To do the right thing, even when you don’t feel like it.

To work hard every day.

To set a high standard for your work.

To be a positive influence during negative times.

All of these things will cost you, so we hesitate and wonder whether or not it’s really worth it.

But the reality is, that there’s a cost to living a mediocre life as well.

It costs to be impulsive.

To stay ignorant.

To be sloppy.

To compromise your values.

To slack off and hope that no-one notices.

To believe that close enough is good enough.

To join the choir of complainers.

Either way, there’s a cost to be paid.

What you sow, you will one day reap, so please choose the cost that becomes an investment in greatness.
