Hello, there! Thank you for joining me and I hope you stay a while. Have you ever had a time where you felt so exhausted, especially after working really hard, and just hoping that it either ends or that it pays off? Me too.
However, what I’ve come to realize is that hard work can be something to enjoy, and it helps me remember what I love and what’s important. Work hard, play hard. There are many times where the work seems like it’s too much, too complicated, too droll, perhaps even the straw that could break the camel’s back. But at the end of the day, it’s what you make that matters.
Making someone’s day, making a beautiful ceramic sculpture, making flash cards, whatever it is, you’re pushing towards something bigger. Yes, that will take consistent hard work, and it will pay off. It may not be immediate, but like a seed planted in good soil and in the right conditions, it will grow and may become much bigger than you could have ever imagined.
So the next time you’re working hard and you hope it pays off or that you want it to be over, just keep going above and beyond.
“The work that challenges you the most is the biggest opportunity for you to learn and grow.”
