It's far too common for people to have thoughts like…

“I’ve been working really hard for 3 months and nothing is happening.  What am I doing wrong?”

Be very careful not to fall victim to this thinking.

If you’re trying to make a significant change in your life…

You have to work hard for a very long time.

But, if you are truly doing everything you can every day to make progress on your goals…

Your hard work will pay off.

What Does “Hard Work Pays Off” Mean?

The meaning behind "hard work pays off" is exactly what you’d expect…

If you put in the effort and execute on a daily basis for long enough...

You will achieve what you are trying to accomplish.

Don’t get it confused…

Working hard by piling on a ton of busy work to stay occupied is not going to do anything beneficial for you.

You need to understand the difference between working hard vs working smart, and learn how to implement both.

If you work for a company, and you work hard to become someone who is highly skilled and extremely valuable...

You will have the opportunity to advance your career.

If you own your own business, and create enough value by solving enough people’s problems…

You will start to see your business grow.

If you stay disciplined with your diet and exercise regularly…

You will start to see the results you are looking for.

The biggest problem in society today is that everybody is looking for the grand slam...

The overnight success…

And most young people (and I mean young in terms of their entrepreneurial journey) have a very unrealistic expectation for how long it’s going to take for them to get the results they’re after.

The quickest way possible…

The easiest way possible…

The flash in the pan success…

Are never long-lasting plans.

Remember this: Easy never pays well.

In business, most people are so focused on money and trying to get rich quickly ... that they forget money is not even the point.

The point is to provide value and create something that helps people solve their problem.

When you dedicate all of your effort toward hitting one grand slam…

You are not developing the skills to become well-rounded and successful in anything you do.

Your hard work is not going to pay off in one year…

2 years…

3 years…

Or even 5 years.

It’s going to take a very long time…

...and you will never be rewarded if you lack patience, or put in the least amount of effort possible.

It’s Worth It

I promise you that regardless of how hard things are and how long it takes…

You will be glad you did it.

Most people get so caught up in looking for the reward, but don't forget…

The most fun part is the process.

The process is where you’ll learn the skills…

Where you’ll have the experiences…

Where you’ll build the relationships…

So quit fearing the work.

It is and always will be ... worth it.
