We all know easy it is to lose ourselves to the TV when we could be working hard at reaching our goals.
I've been thinking a lot about this lately, with all the schoolwork and pressure I've been experiencing from everything and everyone around me. This last week I had several moments of pure laziness and carelessness where, when coming home from school, I decided to put my homework aside and watch TV while eating snacks and thinking "WHY do I have to do what OTHER people want me to do?
The thing is, nothing worth having comes easy, and if you really want something, you've got to work for it.
I want to succeed in my future. I learned that laziness feels good temporarily, but in the long run, hard work is what really makes you feel good.
Us humans tend to put what we love to the side, in acts of procrastination and fear that we might not succeed.
But the only way to succeed is to never, ever give up. This is something I've had to remind myself of many times.
Us humans like to rest, relax, and enjoy ourselves, which is totally understandable, but I feel that sometimes we forget what we'd like to be living for.
Sure, hard work can be HARD... it will often be a true STRUGGLE to get where you want.
But please, please keep struggling.
Because in the end, it's the depth of your struggle that determines the height of your success.
