Every time I hear a ‘road traveled ‘story by someone who has accomplished success in their life, whether it be financial, professional and/or personal, they always state “It wasn’t easy”. They tell tales of the struggles and sacrifices they made along the way to reach their goal. They have had to put in many hours, months, and sometime years to reach their ultimate goal – financial security, dream job, happy marriage, etc.
Then, there are others who put in little to no effort and wait for success to come to them. For some reason, they may feel entitled, “I deserve this! [Therefore, it should happen, right now]” It doesn’t work that way. They may look for short-cuts or deceitful ways to get what they desire. Nothing worth having comes easy and nothing comes to those who wait. If it comes too fast without the work, it most likely will be gone just as fast. There is no great satisfaction in gaining something, with the knowledge that it wasn’t due to your effort. One way or another, there will be a price to pay, for anything received which was undeserved.
A self-assured individual gains satisfaction in their own accomplishments and can proudly proclaim, “It took a lot of blood, sweat and tears…but, I DID IT!”
