Everything in life is a process. The process also has phases. Every phase in life requires a price to be paid to qualify us to move to the next and then the next, until we get to our goals.
Ultimately, everything in life has a price. Everything in life comes at a cost. And for somethings the cost is higher than others. This statement is very true for things that are of true value in life.
The value we place on things or people determines how much we are willing to pay as a price. Funny enough, the price to be paid for a whole lot of things in life cannot be monetized. Indeed, there so many things money cannot buy. This makes it much more difficult as well as demanding on our character.
