This is tough for everyone! It's hard to work hard on a project or a task--and not feel any immediate gratification or maybe not even receive any recognition of our efforts. We may not always see the immediate benefit of our hard work--but, I do really, really, really believe that if we are ever to achieve the things we want most in life--we simply MUST work hard to get them!
Right or Almost Right, a network/multi-level marketing book, recently --and the moral of the story was that there were "almost right" paths that multi-level based business owners could take--or RIGHT paths. The Almost Right path takers may fail or see a little success--but, with a little more effort (a little more WORK), the Right path takers could expect greater success in their ventures. While, I am not a multi-level marketer, there is a valuable lesson here: Sometimes, you need to put forth a little more effort....a little more Umph...And this could be the difference between great success or getting by.
Today--I am preaching the value of hard work to some folks in my little corner of the world who have generally faced "smooth sailing". I know that the preferred path is one of least resistance (i.e. quitting...giving up)--but, I think there is a valuable life lesson to learn here.
Everything in life doesn't come easily.
Sometimes, we have to push harder. Try harder. Try again if (when) our last efforts failed.
Work harder than you think you did yesterday.
Have a wonderful Monday--and realize that you are working hard for a reason. For a goal. For a purpose!
