Are You Willing to Sacrifice?

Yesterday, I was trying to install hackintosh on my notebook. Hackintosh is a mac that can be installed in a PC. I have tried it since 2 weeks ago, but I couldn’t make it to work. I always got a different error when I tried to use a different configuration. Yesterday, I did it better, because I can got rid of the errors and enter the setup screen.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t format my hard-disk’s partition for the mac installation. It always stuck and didn’t format my hard-disk correctly. After many attempts, I decided to try to format my hard-disk, which means that I will lose all of my data. I knew that, but I did it.

Fortunately, it works! I can finish the installation process successfully. Finally, I can install a hackintosh on my notebook. Eventhough there are still many bugs that exist and some of the hardware couldn’t work, I’m happy that I can try to use a mac.

From this event, I learn that to get something that we want, sometimes we have to sacrifice all things that we have. I have to lose all of my precious data just to try a mac. Maybe it is not a big deal, but I will face something worse than this in the future. I have to choose and sacrifice something that I love. It will be happen because there is a price that you should pay to get something, and sometimes it is not cheap.

The sad story is, it is the one who willing to sacrifice more that will get a better result. Many successful people have sacrifice something to get what they have. Time, money, love, health, and many more. There will be no success without a sacrifice.

So, are you willing to sacrifice something that you love to get something that you want? Well, you have to.
