A compromise is a “trade off.” When you compromise, you don’t get what you originally wanted but rather you give up that in order to get a reduced version of what you wanted. It’s one thing to do that in business. It’s another thing to do that in life.
There are four essential categories in which we compromise ourselves:
- Our health
- Our relationships
- Our finances
- Our career
In each of these four areas, we should have a “strong desire” for a specific outcome. For example, “I want to lose weight, feel better, and sleep at night.” or, “I want to own my own home.”
All of these are right and good for you, but we hold ourselves back from achieving them because we compromise ourselves. Maybe we feel we don’t deserve them. Maybe we feel we’re being selfish. Whatever the reason is, we are trading off what we truly want for something much less.
The root of our compromise is a lack of conviction, and I define conviction as a “strong belief in the rightness of a strong desire.” If you have that, you won’t compromise yourself or your goals.
Therefore, we’re usually weak in our beliefs about our strong desires such as, “It’s selfish of me to want to do something for myself,” or we’re weak in the desire itself. Either one will lead to self-compromise and keep us where we are in life.
