In the world today we don’t talk much about altars. Perhaps only talking about a wedding ceremony being performed. However there was a time where altars played a significant role in someone’s day to day life. Now, I am not going to get into a discourse on mosaic law, nor of sacrificing the firstlings of the flock.
I am going to be talking about an altar that we need to visit regularly. This is something that if we don’t make a regular visit we may find ourselves moving forward in such a way that we are burdened down. Or perhaps we may end up sacrificing the wrong thing.
But when we do make these visit’s as often as needed, and sacrifice what we ought to, we will find our life moving forward in ways that are even greater than we could have ever imagined.
Today we will talk about . . .
“The Altar of Sacrifice”
So, you may be wondering what in the world I am talking about. That’s ok, hang with me. You will see that visiting this altar will become something you look forward to even if your first few visits are less than pleasant.
Chances are if you are reading this post, I know some things about you. So I am going to talk about you for a moment? Cool? (Disclaimer: If I am wrong about you, please tell me nicely that I should discontinue my career as a fortune teller, ok?)
If you are reading this post my guess is that you are a person who has lofty goals and ambitions. You are the kind of person who has a drive and desire for greatness in many aspects of your life. You have likely achieved a high level of skill or mastery in certain aspects of your life, however you are not seeing the level of success or fulfillment that you would like. You probably have an area or two of your life that you have put some serious effort into, but you keep coming away from that area confused as to why you feel like you are spinning your wheels.
Any of those ring true?
So what is it? What is the secret?
Well we are not going to talk about getting unstuck, we covered that in this series of posts, check them out here.
So you may be asking what is this “Altar of Sacrifice” business all about? Let’s dive in shall we?
I have found that we as human beings don’t like to sacrifice. If left to our own devices and preferences we would much rather live a comfortable life devoid of any sacrifice. However, we end up sacrificing things all the time. Literally every day. The problem? We sacrifice the wrong things.
We sacrifice our health for our career. We sacrifice our relationships for short term gain. We sacrifice our time for money. We sacrifice our wealth for made up security. You see where I am going with this?
Oftentimes we sacrifice what should be our long term primary priorities for short term secondary activities.
What we should be doing is sacrificing our secondary activities and sub-par character traits.
If only there was a dealership for these type of things. Imagine walk in with an unfulfilled life and character and walk away with a brand new shiny excellent character. (Well, there kind of is. Check out one of our live events.)
I can think of times where I had to sacrifice what I thought my skills were as a salesman. I had to sacrifice what talents I thought I had. What I mean is I remember stepping into a new sales role thinking that I was going to be a rock star without really having to change much. I thought I was good enough. I thought I didn’t need to learn the program, I had it all made, after all I was the top producer at my last gig, what could go wrong?
So . . . What ended up happening was that the universe gave me a big ol’ piece of humble pie. The Universe “gave me a spankin'” as Brandon Broadwater would say. I had to give up my pride and what I thought I knew in order to become better and excel at my new position. I had to become more connected to my family, I had to strengthen my faith, I had to work and pray for my communication to be effective and persuasive.
Imagine with me for a second a life without fear. A life without doubt. A life without negativity. Imagine, living a life full of excitement and love for who you are and what you do. Imagine with me for a second a life where you do not have to worry about money. A life of significance and contribution. A life of continual progression, self realization, and joy.
I can tell you that it is possible to live that kind of life. In fact that is the very kind of life we engineer here at Master Your Power Within. That is the very kind of thing we learn about and teach at our Seminars. That is what our master coaches do on our Personal Results Coaching Calls.
So what if instead of sacrificing your family relationships, time, education, money, etc., why don’t we sacrifice that fear, doubt, negativity, and pride? When we treat ourselves like second class citizens we get second class results, so why don’t we stop?
If we want to live that life of excitement, love, and financial freedom, then why don’t we start sacrificing the right things? Ask ourselves, is this something a top performer would do? Is this something that a healthy person would eat? Is thins something a financial wise person would do?
So let’s shed the unnecessary sub par characteristics we carry around and trade them in for top notch, grade A quality attributes and lifestyles.
So let me ask, what are you going to put on the Altar of Sacrifice?
