The thing is, all of us would absolutely love the grand results we want, without having to do a lick of work. If we could wake up one day and the book, presentation, clothing line or *insert whatever it is here* be miraculously finished, we wouldn’t even care if it was elves that did it or not. We’d dance, rejoice and explode with joy because we’d gotten everything we wanted with little to no effort.
Let’s backtrack to reality though. The truth is, most of the things we really want will require lots of hard work. They will require dedication, long hours, staying home when friends want to go out, annoying moments staring at the screen, you name it and it can probably be tossed in there. Our goals require determination times infinity. Sure, a bit of luck thrown in for good measure helps as well, but overall, how can we possibly expect the kind of results we want, if we don’t get cracking and work towards achieving them?
So, even though sometimes it’s easy to feel like giving up, don’t take that door, that’s the easy way out. Try what’s behind door number two and enjoy the blessings that follow :).
