Why sacrifice is the greatest of all teachers

Self-realization is the most powerful motivator in the world. And it can only be achieved by experiencing loss.

It is a high price to pay because we don’t want to experience pain. But unless we fail, we don’t change.

Loss and pain are due in process of self-exploration and discovery. They just happen when we force ourselves out of the bubble. Question is, are you up for it?

  1. I think this depends on your level of self-realization at the time of loss, and the loss itself. The last time I experienced great loss, I learned nothing new about myself, even after great soul-searching. I changed, but not at all for the better. The pain of loss, for me, was crippling. I believe that I was a better person before, and much more motivated to keep improving. Now, after loss, after failure, I have very little motivation to do anything beyond surviving.

  2. Hello Ideal Ideas!
    First of all I want to thank you for following me, and second nice posts.
    You got my attention on this very post. I like to think that self realization comes in time; you also need patience and perseverance.
    You have to have a dream, in order to fulfill it, to self “realizate” yourself.
    The path is long, and my dear friend, loss is a small price to pay, believe me, you will feel stronger emotions and feelings.
    If you will come forward or step back it’s at your own decision, you only have the answer and you have all the power you need, right inside of you.
    I wish you a nice day!

  3. Thanks for sharing your experience.I really appreciate your courage.
    I think loss is a double-edged sword.It can either arm us to become strong or cut deep into the skin and leave a scar for the rest of our lives.We don’t know which loss will affect us in which way.We can only gain experience and learn along the way.I hope you feel better soon 🙂

  4. I agree with that. Losing something makes us stronger and help us not to get attached to material world, as it reminds us that material goods come and go, but there are other things which will stay with us no matter what: like family, friends and all good relationships we are going to build during our life.
