It was Theodore Roosevelt who said “In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing at all.”
Not making a decision will only deprive you of life experiences that would otherwise shape your life and your character for the better.
If I can share one thing with you that I’ve learned in my 28 adventurous and crazy years here on earth, it would be this; “The hardest and most crucial thing you can do when making a decision is to get started doing something”.
When you experience this, you now need to work very hard to put all of your ideas and inspirations down on paper and bring it into reality.
Work is a blessing in disguise. I know a lot of people who absolutely hate their work. I also know people who absolutely LOVE their work. So what’s the difference?
I’ll try to illustrate my point throughout this post. Hopefully by the time you've read through it, you'll have a way better appreciation for work.
Work is a principle of faith and endurance. It can also bring joy. I say it's a principle of faith because you will never work without expectation, meaning; you will always work expecting a certain result to follow otherwise you would never do anything.
The person who hates work probably:
- Lives without purpose
- Does not act upon passion
- Has Selfish Desires
- Have low standard of living
- Don’t quite understand work and the role it plays in our growth
- Is a follower
- Pursues their passion
- Acts with purpose
- Selflessly gives of his/her time, talent, and resources
- Lives with high standards
- Loves people
- Understands the value of a hard day’s work
- Is a leader
When you work, you have the ability to exercise faith and act upon dreams, hopes, and expectations. You get to take a step in a direction and knowing that good will come out of it, even if just for experience that will help bring you that much closer.
Work is also an opportunity for us to share our talents and skills. We are able to entertain or fill a need of some sort for someone else. That’s almost the entire reason we’re here in the first place.
Will Smith said it best, when asked about work ethic, when he said this; “You can be more skilled than me, you can be smarter than me, you can even be better looking than me. But as soon as we step on a treadmill, I'm either gonna win or die on the treadmill. You’re either getting off, or I’m dying that day”.
Your success will only be measured by who you become, how hard you work and how good you are at bringing people with you, because in the end, your life will either be filled with regret for not taking action or you'll be wealthy and have changed countless lives in the process..
