I want to make a sentence which asks how far a person is willing to go to achieve a goal. I wrote:
Anytime you want to make sure that you are serious enough about your dream, ask yourself:
Are you ready to lose your 5 teeth but achieve your goal.
I have two problems with this self made sentence.
Is "ready" a good adjective, because I think "ready" is usually used in different type of sentences like "Are you ready for the trip?"
I am not sure about the "but achieve to your goal" part. Is it even grammatical at the first place, put aside being idiomatic!
