“When you live for a strong purpose, hard work isn’t an option. It’s a necessity.”
What is the purpose that you live for? When did it become so strong that the work required to to fulfill your purpose became part of the joy?
With a deep purpose driving you forward you don’t have a choice when it comes to doing the hard work, it happens naturally because you couldn’t fathom not doing it. I would argue that when you truly live for a strong purpose that the hard work doesn’t feel like hard work. The effort is rewarding and while the hours might be long or the work intense, the fact that it is driven by purpose makes the work itself part of the motivation.
