What Sort Of Sacrifices Are Intelligent

by Cortez Robinson (author's profile)



What sort of sacrifices are intelligent? The answer to this question resonates within. An intelligent sacrifice is any in which you gain a greater happiness by letting go of a lesser one, in the same way you'd give up a Buick for a Bentley in exchange. In other words, an intelligent sacrifice is like a profitable trade. "I'll make a trade."

There is something in all of us that would rather no give things up. We'd prefer to keep the Buick and get the Bentley but maturity teaches up that we can't have everything. To indulge in one pleasure often involves denying ourselves another, perhaps a better one. Thus we need to establish clear priorities for investing our limited time and energies where they'll give the most lasting returns. He who loses money, loses much. He who loses a friend, loses much more. He who loses faith, loses all.
