…ing and everything that we want, and when we don’t get it, we get sad, angry, and even discouraged. But the honest truth is, yes, we are all deserving of whatever we want, but, we won’t truly achieve what we want unless we are willing to work our asses off to get there — and even then, it’s not guaranteed. News flash, life isn’t fair, and life isn’t easy. As nice as it sounds to say ‘life should be fair’…
Couldn’t agree more. This is why I don’t like when these slogans say things like “you deserve what you dream”, because they’re hiding an unavoidable truth behind: you need to work your ass off to see your dream come true, and you cannot blame no one more than yourself if you don’t give your best.
Like Muhammad Ali once said: I hated every minute of training but I said: ‘Don’t quit – suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’
