Never ever compromise yourself for something. You will gain the 1 thing and lose everything else. You HAVE TO hold onto your values. This is especially important in the moments that you are in need or tired of waiting for something. Those points of vulnerability are forks in the road where you could gain in all or lose a lot.
“So when these people sell out, even though they get fabulously rich, they’re gypping themselves out of one of the potentially most rewards experienced of their unfolding lives. Without it, they may never know their values or how to keep their new-found wealth in perspective.” –Steve Jobs
“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the world, and forfeit his soul?” Mark 8:36
