“Don’t expect miracles without hard work.” Not sure who said it, but it’s so true.
I read biographies and writings from people that have had great success – guys like Steve Jobs, Mark Cuban, Ronald Reagan, and many others. Their stories would hardly be interesting without the adversity and hard work.
Too many people are ‘lottery minded’ these days. They think the only way they will get ahead is if they get “lucky” or a miracle occurs. They jump into everything that has a miracle ending promised but they give up before they ever achieve results. A little ‘sweat equity’ is much more powerful than wishful thinking. – JR
