    It sounds OK to me, but I'm not a native speaker. It's 'hard' like in "I was gazing hard at the man."

    I think it would be sufficient to say "you have to make sacrifices" because sacrifice is intrinsically hard, and in reality I don't think "you have to sacrifice all to achieve success"

    Maybe, to sacrifice more than ever would be better.
