Everyone wants a magic pill. The multi-billion dollar diet industry proves that point in and of itself, but if there was a magic weight loss pill out there everyone would be taking it and we would no longer have an overweight nation. Real success doesn’t happen overnight. Anything worthy something takes time and investment.
I’ve been thinking about shortcuts a lot in the past few days. There are some people in my life who are seeking the answers to their problems through their own connived versions of a shortcut. But the truth is that there are no shortcuts to any place worth going.
We are all on a journey towards a goal of some sort right now. Take joy in the process and in the journey, for your reward in walking the right path over the long term will be well worth it. If you feel frustrated at the length of your journey, take heart and turn your eye to the temptations of shortcuts that come your way. Your perseverance will pay off beyond what you can measure, so keep on keeping on my friend.
