Growing up, despite my best attempts not to listen, the elders taught me nothing worth anything ever comes without a great price being paid. That is, the really big things in life, the really important things, life changing things, they never come easy. No matter whether it changes the course of a single life, team, family, a community or humanity as a whole. No matter which, a great price must be paid in order to accomplish these things, a great personal expense must be perpetually expended over protracted periods of time. With the very real chance of failure, of losing it all and starting all over again, facing you at every single turn along the path.
