“Much effort, much prosperity.” –Euripides
I can remember when I was a much younger man, possibly last week, when I was thinking how great it would be to do less and make more. The end result was wasted time in the areas that bring me the most growth. I think this concept can span many different aspects of a life; a lack of effort and the attitude of I want more for less.
I took time to look at the effort that I was putting forth in some of those aspects, what I found was there was more time wasted than applied and some of the applied time had poor intention behind it. I think I see a great deal of this attitude in my surroundings as well. I hear people often saying how they are not getting enough out of their efforts when questioned how strong those efforts or how focused their intentions are, the honest answer is that there is a lack.
We live in a time and place where it has becoming increasingly easy and accepted to wait around expecting things to change. I think that time is about to start changing, if for no one else, it will in my life. If I want my life to change today I need to put forth the effort to change it, not just sit back and think about how the world needs to tilt towards me.
Get up, get out and make something happen. Focus on a goal that has been sitting around and put some honest intended effort into it. I have one in mind already and I am sure you do to…go, go ahead…DO IT!
Affirmation: What I get reflects what I put in and today I am going to give it all I got.
Call To Action: Decide on a goal that you will place some intended effort into and share it with a friend and us.
