Thoughts on Success Part 9

Work Hard

Hard work is essential to being successful. Thinking & planning are important but without the work required thinking & planning are only dreams.  It is important to remember that we are not machines. We need to work hard but we also need balance & rest in our life. I’ve had people ask me “I’m behind in my work what do you think I should do?” Often my response has been “take a day off.” It is easy to work hard & be played out. The result is you are always working but since you are tired you work at a low level of efficiency.

It has been my experience that working in line with your goals is tiring but not exhausting. There is tremendous satisfaction in knowing you are making progress towards your goals.

MY Wage

I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store.
For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
I worked for a menials hire,
Only to learn dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of life
Life would have paid.
