In today’s world of many people wanting everything to be easier and faster, one thing still holds true from my experience and research; success is hard work and success takes time.
Sure, you may be able to have some quick “wins,” but overall, anything that really lasts long-term is something that has included hard work, passion, and persistence over time.
You cannot “microwave” a great team.
You cannot “microwave” a great relationship.
You cannot “microwave” a great career.
You cannot “microwave” a healthy mind, body, and spirit.
You have to put the work in – DAILY – in order to create any level of sustained success.
Anyone that tells you anything different is probably “selling” you on something that you probably really don’t want or need in your life.
Another side benefit from your daily commitment is your development of the skill/characteristic that the gurus and research is now showing to be the most critical to your success and happiness in life – self-control.
When you have this self-control (discipline/grit) – you tend to EARN things and APPRECIATE the journey and results much more, which will lead to a life full of joy, pride, confidence, success and happiness.
