No one else can do it for you. You’ve got to show up, get your hands dirty and put in the work. Nothing beats hard work. Because it is hard work that opens the door to you understanding your craft, developing your skill set and becoming the master of your trade. The more energy, effort, time and personal resources we put in, the faster we learn the trade. The sooner we can perform at a level that demands respect and the admiration of others and that is when the gateway to greater income and opportunities starts to open up. Not before then. Don’t be afraid of hard work.
Don’t worry about working smarter. Just focus on putting the work in every day, so you become something and become so much more than you are today. The years of labouring and toiling will give the edge you are looking for. You won’t ﬁ nd it in books or on Instagram or at a seminar. You’ll only ﬁ nd that thing that separates you by working, by learning your craft and putting in the work.
Nothing beats hardwork because it’s the work that makes you. You can try and ﬁ nd the easy way out, you can try and ﬁ nd a short cut but when all is said and done you’re going to have to put in the work at some point and learn a skill set and trade. Whatever that may be. Put in the work. Do your part of the deal and trust the process. Love the process and be grateful that it is taking so long because with each passing day you are developing your skills and becoming a master of your craft.
