MOTIVATION: Anything Worth Having Takes Hard Work
Updated: Oct 28, 2019
If you aren’t struggling (at least a little), then your #goals aren’t big enough.
Anything worth having takes hard work. It’s not going to be a picnic all the way through. That includes #relationships, career, health, spiritual, and financial goals. All good things in life come with some discomfort, #fear, sadness, and/or #anger in additional to all of the positive #emotions and outcomes. But if it is a goal worth having, and it speaks to your highest and most treasured $values, then you will keep pushing ahead despite the discomforting feelings and thoughts because you know it will be worth it in the end. Think about your last big goal. Was it when you graduated from school? When you achieved a big milestone at work? When you got married, had children, or moved to a new city? Was it when you reached your goal weight or bought a new house? Now ask yourself, was the journey smooth and easy? Or did it come with some rough patches? I want you to start embracing those rough patches and see them as necessary and even good! Challenges along the way to a big goal shows us that we are on the right track. And when you overcome those challenges, that gives you such a big self-esteem boost, and you’ll become even more confident that you can achieve everything you put your mind to. What’s your next big goal, and what’s been holding you back from going for it?
