Read this quote from Thomas Paine:
That which we attain too easily, we esteem too lightly. It is
dearness only which gives everything its value. Heaven knows how
to put the proper price on its goods.
What does this mean to you?
To me it means that trials and tribulations separate the men from the boys. The boys give up or throw hissy fits when things don’t seem to be going their way. Men deal with the current situation and stay proactive.
It isn’t the easiest thing in the world to keep putting one foot in front of the other, in blind faith toward your dreams, when all you have to rely on is your own confidence.
It is what it is.
Are you a man or a boy?
If you’re a man then you know what must be done.
The world needs your greatest gift.
Put the small shit behind you and get on your job of giving it.
If you push through the always difficult beginning, and stay consistent in your giving, the world will thank and reward you for it.
