It’s so often in life these days that we want things to happen now or we aren’t willing to do anything. But I’m here to talk to you about why slower is better, and you should be willing to put in the hard work or wait for things.
1 – The trickle down effect
If you have to work hard for things that you really want, you’ll be much more willing to work hard for everything in your life. And at some point working hard becomes easy and your norm. Then would you say that working hard isn’t hard? 🙂
2 – Expectations
If you always get things right away without having to wait or work hard, you’ll start to have those expectations for other parts of your life. For example, why would you grab a bad of Cheetos at the store if you know they aren’t good for you, will make you feel bad after eating them, and make you gain fat? It’s usually because you don’t want to take the time to figure out what will fill that hunger in a healthier way.
3 – Appreciation
If you have to work hard for something over time, then once you received what you’ve been working for you’ll have a MUCH greater appreciation for it then if you snapped your fingers and got it.
4 – The journey is really where it’s at
What do I mean by this… the learning and work that takes place in the time that you are working towards your goals is really The Good Stuff (as Kenny Chesney would say). The hard early mornings in the gym to get the muscular body that you want become the really fun part that you love and appreciate. Trust me, this is true.
5 – You will achieve more
Yep, if you have the mindset that achieving good, awesome things takes time you’ll be willing to put your head down and work for things more often. Opposed to the guy that doesn’t start anything because it’s going to be a hard long road. Look back in 5 or 10 years and see how much you’ve accomplished. People say that life is short, but it’s all perspective. It’s really pretty long, with all kinds of time to accomplish things.
Take the time to work hard and learn how to be as fit and healthy as you can be. Even if it takes a lifetime you’ll live a longer better life that’s more rewarding.
