“Striving for success without hard work is like trying to harvest where you haven’t planted.”
This quote is akin to having a retirement philosophy based on playing the lottery. If you do the math, it just doesn’t work. If you don’t invest, you can’t reap the returns when you need to in the future.
To be successful means you have to choose to sacrifice. You have to put aside that shallow want and buckle down and do the work. Only then can you begin to think about the harvest.
Where are you planting the seeds of future success today? I.E., where are you putting in the work?
