If you want to achieve anything worth achieving can you get there without pain?
- Lose weight
- Pass an exam
- Get your black belt
- Win a contest
- Make a marriage work
- Bring up happy children
or get anything worth getting or do anything worth doing?
The short answer is no.
I don’t believe in suffering for the sake of it. If there really was some sort of quick fix way of getting anything worthwhile I would consider it. So far though, I have never found out ?a way of getting anything worthwhile without:
- Studying hard
- Investing time and effort
- Risking hurt feelings
- Doing it over and over
- Practising until you can’t get it wrong
But when you get it you know you worked for it and earned it.
Once more, you are authentic and will have realised that it was the journey and not the destination.
