“Being worthy is up to the beholder, becoming worthy is up to us.”
Wow! It has been a long 2 weeks, but lo and behold, I have returned!
In this post, I would like to talk about a recurring theme in all of our lives, and something which we would love nothing more than to master. We will discuss the reasoning for it, the varying effects, and then how we can use this wonderful concept to improve our lives in a truly beautiful way.
Drum Roll Please…. dum dum dum dum!
The winner is Effort 🙂
Why do we need effort?
Everybody has their own answers for this simple yet important question.
In this society we think in terms of value and subjective thought processes, to truly become consistent we must become objective within our lives and focus on what truly matters. If what you believe in, is your work, then you will apply these skills there, if it is family, then you will think this pertains to them, and if it is friends, you will take this socially. We need effort for one reason, and that is the concept of worthy accomplishment.
When we work hard for something, there is a sense of completion which we rarely achieve in our lifetimes. We see this in many cases such as research papers and high-intensity housework. 🙂 Think of the times we are given the keys, do we feel good about having it, or are we proud of ourselves for reaching the point where we could put the pedal to the metal?
We can buy happiness, but as we know, that doesn’t last too long, and if it does we have given up on true accomplishment. Waking up at the crack of dawn every day may be hard, but there is that feeling of happiness we get by the time we are awake. That feeling is worth all the hardships in the world because we know it is real…
Praise yourself for your hard work, and your achievements will come naturally.
