"We will receive not what we idly wish for but what we justly earn."
While it's great to enjoy the gifts we receive from others, can there be any greater feeling on earth than actually earning what you get? Is there a more satisfying sensation than the one you experience every time you roll up your sleeves, get to work and making something happen? I guess it depends on who you ask.
In a world where free samples, hand outs and giveaways command a great deal of our collective attention, more and more people seem quite content to sit on the sidelines while others do the heavy lifting. Rather than taking charge and getting things done, they wait for the next freebie to come along.
"The only way to enjoy anything in this life is to earn it first."
Instead of giving life their very best shot, way too many people only put forth the bare minimum effort, if that. Now don't get me wrong. These folks want the best out of life just like everyone else. But wanting is about as far as it goes. When it's time to lay it all on the line and make something happen, they fold like a lawn chair. These people never push past their fears and as a result, never experience the profound sense of self-satisfaction that comes with earning what they desire.
Constantly struggling to barely scrape by is no way to go through life. Oh sure, its easy to get discouraged when faced with disappointment. And it's easy to get frustrated when we fail or fall down in our quest for success. But getting discouraged or frustrated and staying that way are two entirely different matters.
"Never stand begging for what you have the power to earn."
Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
Instead of crawling in a hole when trouble comes a 'calling, we need to rise up and meet the challenges we encounter daily. Rather than sticking our heads in the sand the minute things don't go our way, we need to knuckle down and gut it out; doing whatever we must to overpower the obstacles in our paths. Getting back up and continuing our trek to the top whenever we are knocked off-track or off balance is what winning is all about.
Instead of wasting our time yearning, why don't we start earning what we want out of life right now? Worrying yourself sick about what you supposedly 'can't do' or what you 'don't have' isn't going to cut the mustard. Its time to step up and begin doing a little more each day than you think you possibly can, continuously pushing yourself a little farther than you think you can possibly go.
"Pennies do not come from heaven. They have to be earned here on earth."
You can do far more than you can possibly imagine. Way more. And you can go much farther than you have ever dreamed of going. A whole lot farther. Each and every cherished goal and aspiration you hold within is within your reach, within your grasp, right there for the taking.
But you must believe you can do whatever it is you want to do in order to get it done. And believe it with all of your heart and soul.
Want more out of life? Then go and get it - and go get it with everything you've got. When you passionately pursue your dreams with persistent, relentless fervor, you too will revel in the incomparable feeling of having earned your lot in life.
