No pain no gain. Work hard to achieve the top. No tv and no beer makes Homer something something…
So we don’t like to Slog to get to our goals, we want a magic wand to do it and we pretend to be great with little effort. But let me say you something: even magic has its cost.
But slogging to get where just a few would ever arrive, that’s not something to avoid or to be afraid about.
There’s no need to be great to live well. On the contrary, normal life can be better than the life of those who want to fight and be better every day.
BUT… (there’s always a B SIDE) if you don’t understand at least what kind of level you want to live into, if you don’t understand there’s nothing bad in stay in the middle, people who want to scam you will have access to your inner core just by tapping into you Slog Fear. They’ll sell you the sky for a few dimes, but the only think you’ll receive is air.
So let’s be honest with ourselves, and get rid of our fears of working hard. Luck is an illusion. You either have to work out your life for yourself, or just accept it and be happy with what you got. At the end of the day, the happy will be happy, and the unhappy will be unhappy, whether you slogged or not. So if you want desperately to be afraid of something, be afraid of being unhappy for not understanding yourself, because when you do there’s no hard work, there’s only happiness and satisfaction.
