Pay The Price To Succeed

Success is like anything worthwhile it has a price.

You have to pay the price to win and you have

to pay the price to get to the place where

success is possible. Most important, you

must pay the price to stay there.”

Vince Lombardi 1913 - 1970, America Football Coach  


As I see it. . . . . . . .

Pay the price to succeed


The person that’s determined to succeed commits themselves to the pursuit of their dreams . . . . and the price that has to be paid to successful achieve their goals. They realize that their success journey is not a free ride to the top. They also understand that there is a price to that has to be paid to succeed . . . . and a price to stay on top.


The success journey is a toll road . . . . and to reach the top of your profession . . .  . you have to be willing to pay the tolls to reach our destination.


The person with the desire to succeed . . . . but is unwilling to pay the tolls will find that their success journey will come to a stop at the toll booth of life. Their success journey will only go as far as their commitment to pay the price to succeed.


The person that commits themselves to succeed is focused on their purpose of seeking and achieving success. The person that commits themselves to pay the price now to succeed has a purpose and the motivation to succeed.


You pay the price to succeed . . . . and it may seem high as you travel the path of your success journey.  When you achieve success . . . . and look back on your success journey . . . . and will see that the price was small price to pay in comparison to your achievements.

Lou- so very true.  If we didn't have to pay, and if it were easy, then we'd all be successful.  It's what makes it rewarding.

Lou, success doesn't come from nothing.  Whether it's an investment of time, money, or something else, it comes with a price.

Nothing that is worthwhile comes easy. There is a lot of toil and sweat to make it but that makes it that much more special

 Good morning Lou.  Vince Lombardi was right. Success comes at a cost. How much is one willing to pay is the next question.

Good morning Lou. How appropriate to have a Lombardi quote after the Superbowl. The two teams that played yesterday know what means to pay the price.

Make it a great week!

Hello Lou,  Sometimes the price is high but if you want it you must go go for it and work it.
