Compromise or Sacrifice -- Either One Will Get You What You Deserve -- Which Path Will You Take?

avatar

A little background. Many years ago I bought a course called the Proven Amazon Course to learn how to sell items on Amazon. I did learn how to do that. And then decided that it wasn't for me. I like the idea of selling physical products online but didn't want the inventory cluttering my space at home.

Recently I sent some books to Amazon using their Fulfilled By Amazon program. That renewed my interest in the eCommerce business model. I never really lost interest but I still don't want to put my hands on the inventory. That is a sticking point for me.

I belong to a group on Facebook started by the owner of the Proven Amazon Course. His name is Jim Cockrum. He wrote a book many years ago called The Silent Sales Machine. It has since gone through many editions. This year they are having a virtual conference called Ecommerce Opportunity 2022 Conference. It is free to people who have purchased the Proven Amazon Course. They are live streaming presentations today and tomorrow and they will be recorded as well.

One of the speakers I listened to this morning talked about how the voice we hear the loudest in our minds is our own. That means that we have to be really careful about how we talk to ourselves. He also talked about the two paths from which we need to choose. The first path is the one of compromise and giving up on our dreams. The second is one of sacrifice and not making excuses. Either path or choice will get us to the same destination which is what we deserve.

I Am Going to Stop Right Here!

Where will you be next year at this time?

Wow deep @lisamgentile1961
I am expecting to be nicely settled into Hive.
I have a few family members considering coming to Hive now as well.
My plan is to have them all onboarded by or soon after the end of the month.
My daughters partner wants me to show him this weekend after his work.
I am hoping to have my content more organized and polished.
So that's the plan Onboard, get better and enjoy the journey.

Fantastic advice there Lisa, and good punch line, we can make the sacrifices to get what we want or we can give up and not reach them, I know what I am going for, thanks for sharing and stay awesome.

I think the key would be to really know what the destination one would like to reach and how much you value the choices between Compromising and/or Sacrifices that you are willing to make to get there. Now that I am a lot older, I look back and do not regret the choices that I have made. They have made me who I am. I would be a totally different person if I would have made different choices. Since the choices I made have changed me, so to the destinations have changed along the way with the choices I made.

I struggle with regretting my past choices, @darmst5339 But you are right. I wouldn't be the person I am today without the choices I made in the past. I like where I am right now so I have to remind myself how I got here. Thanks for the comment and enjoy your day! 😀
