"The trick – well, the trick is to figure out what you want to do, work supremely hard, put it at the center of your life and pay the price for it all." Deborah Beale, author
Isn't that so true!!
You have to know what you want, and then decide the pain and work is worth fighting for what you want.
Is it worth it to have a job you hate to earn the money you need for the things you want?
Is it worth it to give up that job, have less, but have a job you like?
Is it worth it to spend time on the road away from family and home so that you can play music, or act?
What are you willing to pay to have what you want?
