Earlier this week a friend of mine got some absolutely wonderful news about a job. I was so happy for her that day, like seriously happy. I couldn't have been happier if it were a job for me. It was actually a great reminder that hard work does pay off. Sometimes when you're working toward your goals, it seems as if you're running in circles and you're never going to get there. But, if you work hard enough, and surround yourself with the right people, opportunities will eventually present themselves. It might be something completely different than what you were working toward, but if it's a great opportunity, you have to give it a shot. I'll leave you with a great quote I saw the other day.
You will spend your life in one of two pain zones: The Pain of Discipline or the Pain of Regret. If you choose discipline, recognize that the pain can go on for a while but there will be a positive outcome on the other side. Then ask yourself how long you will experience regret if you don’t change.
Put them on the scale. Discipline weighs ounces. Regret weighs a ton! - Myers Barnes
