Sacrifice


(Listen to the song below while you read.)
“In order to achieve greatness, you must first sacrifice everything.” – Joe Escobedo

While your friends are pre-gaming in a 7-11 parking lot, you’re lacing up your Asics.

While they’re clinking glasses at some smoky bar, you’re hitting the pavement.

While they’re grinding on the dance floor, you’re pushing yourself to the point of complete exhaustion.

While they’re stumbling down the street on their way home, you’re fighting against the pain and the temptation to quit.

At the end of the journey, they will be left with puke-stained clothes, while you cross that finish line knowing that all of the pain, all of the tireless hours, all of the sacrifice was well worth it.
