These are all examples of things that we put on the line or run the risk experiencing when we are on the path to greatness and have chosen to invest in our future.
But some people want "Some-Thing" for "NO-Thing".
That is NOT an equal exchange of goods & services. One of my favorite books says: "let every man give to his fellow man in services equal or greater value than what he has received in payment". This is the true measure of success. Not only what we have accomplished in our own lives but what another human being will proudly say we have contributed to their life.
Invest in your future by choosing to invest in others.
