People always expect things to just happen with no work or effort put in. It must just come to you or it will happen because you said so…
Well I am sorry to burst your bubble, but the last time I checked that was a load of crap! I watched this video by Simon Sinek on millennials (click on his name to watch). Basically it deals with our generation getting consumed by the instant acceptance. Or wait, that like you get on social media – feels great hey? Well honey, that instant gratification won’t get you anywhere. Work for what you want!
I have been a victim of this! If you are honest with yourself, like really honest, we have all gone throught this. We have all wanted something to just come to us like that, at least once in our lives. If that instant gratification worked for someone else, no guarantee it will work for you!! Work hard and the rewards will be that much greater…
With that being said, a diamond isn’t a diamond when you find it. Well it is a diamond, just not the type you’re used to when all the work has been put in the refinement of it. You can put that rough diamond in a ring…it just won’t be as beautiful as the diamond encrusted ring you’ll find in your favorite jewelry shop. All shapes and sizes to make you feel some kind of way when you fall in love with those items. It has to go through a process; hard work, shaping, cutting, placement and sizing before it enters the shop to be sold and you, the client is blown away! To the point where you wouldn’t want to leave without it.
The same goes with anything in life. Some things we may get just like that, but other things we need to work hard for. Trust me, you will be more appreciative for what you’ve worked for than what was just given to you.
Let’s never just want but take the time to graft, work and achieve our goals, being an example for others and watch how much more happier you will be.
Don’t try to be a diamond while chasing the glitter…hard work pays off
