It seems like everyone is interested in the “get rich quick” schemes, or a method for generating thousands of visitors for free in no time.
But the fact of the matter is that if these things were really easy for the average person to accomplish (or cheap), the market would quickly get flooded with people going this route. It is like we want all the benefits without the cost.
If you want something, chances are you are going to have to work your butt off to get it. It isn’t going to be handed to you. But isn’t this part of the joy of the pursuit? If what we wanted was easy to obtain, would it feel as good once we had it?
I don’t think so. I have many dreams, and sometimes the “easy” path is tempting. But then I realize if it is worth having, it is worth working for. I’m not going to wait or hope for someone to give it to me. A big part of this is learning that hitting a wall or experiencing failure while pursuing your dreams should not come as a big surprise. Remember, it should be tough or everyone would have it.
The last thing that comes to mind in regards to this is that we often times forget that the pursuit of our dreams is not only about the end. It is also about the experiences that we go through to get us to that point. Sometimes we may find that the path ends up being more valuable than the destination.
