The real reward is in the becoming.
There are a lot of shady ways to make money.
There are a lot of shallow ways to be in a relationship.
There are a lot of unhealthy ways to lose weight.
In other words, there are a lot of ways to GET a result.
And, while the path of “least effort” may sound lovely in theory, the real reward in achieving anything is who you become along the way to achieving it.
You can skip the “the work” and just jump to the “getting” part. Lots of people do.
The reward of “getting” will always pale in comparison to the reward of “achieving”.
Your efforts will NOT be perfect.
Your progress will NOT be linear.
If your journey looks anything like this picture STOP telling yourself that something has gone wrong.
You are human. This is the way of it.
Keep going and as you head into your week, may you be more focused on who you are becoming and a little less focused on what you are getting:)
Cheering you on!
