Do you ever just wake up and wish that you were already successful in your career? I often wish I could skip over the steps it takes to get to where I want to be in my career. When I think about it, I then ask myself would I appreciate it more knowing that I didn’t have to struggle to get there. In life no one wants to do the dirty work that’s required to achieve their goals. We all want to skip through and be in the career we dream and long to be in. Why do we have to work so hard? Why can’t everything be easy? These are some of the questions I ask myself when I feel like giving up. Then I remind myself that nothing come easy. I like to watch a lot of videos with millionaires and billionaires talking about their success and how they managed to accomplish their goals.
The people in the videos all have something in common, they all started from the bottom then ended up on top. They worked hard and believed in what they wanted to do. They never said it was easy, but they all kept going. I know that I’m not where I want to be in my career but what I do know is that I’m not giving up. There are no such things as short cuts. No short cuts to your health no short cuts to your education and no short cuts to success. Everything requires hard work and no matter how much we try to cheat on our health or school or in achieving our goals, we won’t ever get the real results we are looking for.
When we try to cut corners the only people we are hurting are ourselves. What I have learned from every goal that I have reached in life is that though it was hard I admire myself for completing them. So as I look forward to my future I know that my goals will take some time but as long as I keep striving to achieve them then I will reach them.
