“The dream is free but the hustle is sold separately.”
Have you ever taken a step back to allow yourself to dream about what you really want out of life? Think about how different your life would be if you really had everything you wanted. Do you really believe that what you just envisioned is even possible? If so, are you putting in the work? Taking the time to dream about what we want is the easy part of the process but putting in the work to actually see the results is where many people get stuck.
“You can’t cheat the grind, it knows how much you have invested, it won’t give you anything you haven’t worked for.”
We all have dreams deep within our hearts waiting to be fulfilled, but why is that our dreams sometimes feel impossible to reach? Why are we not willing to really put in the work each day like we need to? The beginning and sometimes the middle of anything we start is always the hardest part. Looking at the big picture of our dream can make the process feel impossible; but what would happen if we just focused on taking small steps everyday? How different would the process be? What would happen if we really put in the work to see our dreams happen?
“Don’t give up. The beginning is always the hardest. Life rewards those who work hard at it.”
Why should we put in the work each day?
1.) Putting in the work impacts the future
If we work hard and give life all we have the future will be bright. If we are not willing to put in the work each day and we sit around doing nothing we will never be able to be successful. The future will only be as bright as we make it. The work the we put in each day not only impacts our lives but also future generations to come.
2.) Putting in the work will move you forward
When we work hard and take small actions everyday its moves us forward in the process of reaching our goal. When we begin to move forward and realize that we are not where we use to be its encourages us to continue to work hard. If you’ve ever planted a flower or some type of vegetable in a garden you realized that in order for the product to reach its full potential it takes work. You have to water and make sure it receives the sunlight and attention it needs each day in order for it to grow. Over time its grows and grows and makes progress towards full developing and eventually reaches the end goal. It’s the same with our lives as we put in the work each day it moves us forward in the process of obtaining our goal.
3.) Putting in the work will ensure that you reach the goal
The harder we worker the greater the opportunity we have to reach our goal. There is nothing like working so hard for something and finally being able to accomplish what you’ve been working hard for. The process may not look like we imagined it to look but when we reach the end goal we realize it was all worth it.
“Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.” Tim Notke
The process to reaching our dreams will never be easy but if we are willing to work hard each day it will pay off. I want encourage you to work hard and give life everything you got. “Nothing happens unless you do.” Stay committed to the process and work the build and better future.
